I am using the desktop (win32 not appstore) Skype on Windows 8. I accepted an auto-update today which now will not let me log into skype at all.
I wiped out the
AppData\Roaming\Skype folder because that's how you get Skype back in the past when it has gone stupid, but that didn't help either.
I do not get any error message, just the circular progress indicator that lasts forever. (Okay, so far it's been 30 minutes. It may eventually time out yet.)
Other ideas please? I tried the Windows 8 App Store Skype app (WinRT), which I hate, I guess I'll go back and install that for now.
Update Skype 6.0.126 seems to be completely broken on my Win8 machine.
