    David,
    This version does not work at all for me; I get playback errors if I try to make any sort of calls. I've had to revert to an older version; the several versions before had this problem as well, but I could still call some people. Then it got worse.

      Hi David! Can you specify exactly which errors occur? And please indicate more details about your system (at least, Skype version and which operating system do you use).

      Hi! Please try this workaround:
      1) Open regedit.exe as administrator
      2) Go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform
      3) Add a new DWORD entry and name it as EnableFrameServerMode with value 0
      4) Restart Skype

      Please let me know if it fixed your problem.

    Elizabeth,
    After doing the latest update I have lost some but not all of my contacts. I have two computer using the same skype account and only the computer that I did the update on is effected. All the contacts are still there on the other one. I have tried... 1. uninstalling skype, still the same on reinstalling. 2. backing up the contacts list from the good computer and restoring onto the updated one..no change. I have checked all settings. Both computers are running version 7.26.101. I have noticed that on the faulty computer the size of the skype program is 84.3 MB and on the one that has the complete contact list it is 380 MB.

      Hey, Bob! Do not mislead, and if you’re not an ordinary troll take a look at digital signature of downloaded Skype installer and ensure that this is a genuine file.
