Skype can’t connect

Some versions of Skype for Windows (more precisely, older ones) are no longer supported, and when you attempt to authorize to them, the following error occurs:
Skype can’t connect
Skype can’t connect

In newer versions, which are also not supported, the text of the error has the exact wording: We’ve signed you out because you’re using an outdated version of Skype. Theoretically, this error can occur in other situations too (for example, in the absence of access to the Internet), but most often the reason is an outdated version.

Solution

In order to be authorized in Skype again, install the latest version or at least one of the versions which are officially supported (that is, 7.17.0.104 and newer ones).

      Please be sure that you don't use an outdated version (i.e., install Skype 7.17.0.104 or newer versions).

      I'm not sure that I understood everything correctly, but check this: Reactivate your Skype Credit. If this is not what you are looking for, please tell me more about your problem.

      Hello! Unfortunately, Microsoft has disabled Skype 7 and users cannot use it anymore on any operating systems.

        So how can I use Skype on Windows XP, since the latest supported version was 7.36.0.150? Any tips how can I install version 8.*?

          There is no solution to run Skype 8 on Windows XP. At this moment the only known solution is to use Skype for Web on Windows XP and Windows Vista.

            This is not working anymore. As in window xp, all browser stop support for this operating system. When i open, it will show "this browser is not supported etc etc". Before was ok, suddenly it became like that. Any bypass thingy can you suggest sir?
