I would like the old Skype to start working again.

I really really need it, and I've been trying to make it work for 3 months now, but all to no avail.. Maybe there is some enthusiast who can make the old version of Skype work?

By the old version of Skype, I mean anything older than version 8. That would be cool!

  • What is in V8 that stops you from using it. Not much difference that i can see. I have Skype V8 on Windows 11 Pro.

  • You could try the procedure described in How to run older versions of Skype for Windows, although it's from 2017 and may not work.

  • “I would like the old Skype to start working again.” - What you want is impossible. Since Skype requires communicating with a server, they can reject older versions, and in fact that’s exactly what Microsoft has done.

It is not possible.

Support for Skype versions 7 and below is ending

Support for Skype versions 7 and below will end on November 1, 2018 on desktop devices and November 15, 2018 on mobile and tablet devices.

What does end of support mean for me?

Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Skype versions 7 and below. If you are still using an older version, you must update to the latest version to continue using Skype.

    Not only that, but Skype itself may not last too much longer. Teams & Zoom have just about killed it off. It's not even in Win 11 at all by default. It's been relegated to the app store.
