  1. Maybe the good crowd here can help. Suddenly, our Skype phone isn't ringing (or is ringing too little) and incoming calls are going too fast to voicemail. None of the adjustments seems to help. This problem is only a few weeks old. (There is NO problem making outgoing calls!) We have the Connect Me Freetalk 1200 device, which is connected to our router (internet access) and to our deskphone. It has been good for two years until this problem. We also have a Skype telephone number. Anyone can call that telephone number and our deskphone will ring (until now). It should ring four or five times before the call goes into Skype voicemail, but now either it is not ringing or ringing only once and already the call is diverted to voicemail. This has been happening in my wife's mini-office, which she rents from a mini-office company. The router in our mini-office is connected to the ethernet socket in the wall, and the mini-office company provides internet access through its own network, which we do not control, to that socket. Until this, all has been working very nicely, with a good internet connection with very low Ping and fast speed up and down. Our Freetalk is connected to that router and our deskphone. Here's my only clue: I took the little Connect Me Freetalk 1200 device home, hooked it up to my home LAN, and it worked perfectly. The little deskphone rang five times and I could either pick it up or let it go to voicemail. And I could make some adjustments (how long it rings) with the Freetalk's embedded web server. But when I brought these back to the mini-office, the symptoms revived - no ring or one ring and the incoming call is already diverted to voicemail. And adjustments don't help. Any thoughts? I'm not a tech person. But maybe the mini-office company did something to its network that interferes with our incoming calls. (But outgoing calls work fine.) Thanks.
  2. Hello, is it possible to keep using Skype on Windows 2000? I don't know where I can change the version number.
  3. Hello, Is it possible to install Skype on Windows Millennium Edition? I know I can install an older version, but I can't login to that.
  4. Today I started skype and got a message that auto-login didn't work. The message said that my password might have been changed (or was changed) from an alternate location, and I need to log in using the new password. I understand that skype has been forcing people to upgrade to newer versions, but this old version I use ( was working fine yesterday or a few days ago. I've been unable to get this same version working on another win-98 machine that I have very rarely used for skype, so I'm not sure if they've permenantly made this version unworkable now. So - does anyone else out there still have skype working on their win-98 system? If so, what version? I understand (vaguely) that there are other alternatives to skype, and would like to know which of them work under win-98. Edit: I've tried setting up a new skype username, and I'm using a throw-away email address. When I try to start skype using the new account, I get: Skype may be blocked on your network. Contact your network administrator, or (2) make sure skype is allowed on your network. Given this is win-98, there is no firewall on this computer, but I'm also not forwarding any ports for skype on my router. But I understand that skype doesn't require any ports to be forwarded (because of how it spoofs connections) - and my current setup was working until a few days ago. I understand that these old versions of skype connect to a different database run by Skype, and perhaps they've finally closed down the servers for those databases? Either that, or Skype doesn't like it when I use a throw-away email service... (?)

    Yesterday, midway through a skype call, skype suddenly stopped working, so I tried to reopen it. My computer screen then went black to be followed by a blue screen with SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION at the top. I have read numerous posts about this with no set solution, so here is a link to the dump file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8IfJMTnm6ShcmtjUGJ5SDJIbDQ/edit?usp=sharing I uninstalled Skype, and I tried to reinstall it. The blue screen came up mid-way the install. This happens every time I try to install it. If anyone has a solution, it would be greatly appreciated.
