I took with your version 7.38.0.101 the MSI installer, extracted and revised with Orca (would not like an updater). A test has shown that this version works fine for me and have no problems with the audio codecs, on the contrary full audio frequency spectrum available (Windows XP with Media Player 11, otherwise no other codecs installed). :thumbup

:)

I can confirm this, just tested. All audio on the receiving and sending end works. Thanks for an updated Skype 7.38.0.101, heinoganda and Dave-H.

I'm using  the WinRAR Vista Ultimate Revamped theme by AmEagle (found in Official WinRar Themes) for more than a year myself (on Vista OS), so I won't be noticing the icons' change with v5.60b1 :P

... Or you can still update to v5.60b1 and then install WinRAR Classic theme by Francesco Indrio (link); how to install a theme I hear you ask?

Quote

You can use themes listed below to modify WinRAR icons. Just download a theme archive and open it in WinRAR to install. Installed themes can be selected in the "Options/Themes" WinRAR menu.

Enjoy!

Three Firefox ESR 52 updates in one week? What's going on Mozilla?

By going to the link in your post (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/skype_windesk-skype_messms-skype_instamessms/office-365-login-page-on-skype-736-on-windows-xp/67ecfdb4-7027-49fb-9a93-193b1875d6b1),

I was able to plug the Skype download link (https://download.skype.com/709ed32afd8f3772c14c78ff22b5f427/SkypeSetupFull.exe) into the Internet Archive (WayBack Machine). The original link is dead, but the download file is still available this way:

https://web.archive.org/web/20170630035953/https://download.skype.com/709ed32afd8f3772c14c78ff22b5f427/SkypeSetupFull.exe

By the way, the thread incorrectly says this is version 7.38.0.101 but it's actually 7.36.0.101.

The version YOU provided (http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/Skype 7.38.0.101 (Last version that runs on XP).exe), however, is version 7.38.0.101. I'm not sure of the difference between "36" and "38".

Anyone here able to run either versions of Skype in XP? I am having trouble figuring if pre-7.40 version support has been axed completely by MS or if it's something on my side.

What part of the post quoted below did you fail to understand? :dubbio:

Hi all -

Bit confused here. Just want to clarify one thing. What is the latest release of Skype for XP, that doesn't have any codecs removed? That is, full-featured.

A link to the latest download would be appreciated. I have 7.37.0.103 of Skype at the moment.

Thanks.

@Earthnet

The last version of Skype that Microsoft officially supports for Windows XP is 7.36.0.150, released May 5, 2017.

The original link broke recently (https://download.skype.com/1de55ae8023424270d5c382554da5584/SkypeSetupFullXp.exe), so here is the archived link: 

https://web.archive.org/web/20180218203417/https://download.skype.com/1de55ae8023424270d5c382554da5584/SkypeSetupFullXp.exe

Here are the official system requirements, which includes a minim of Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3):

ShareX 12 now requires Windows 7 or Higher. Version 11 - XP

But according to Changelog and GitHub issue #3201

Quote

Windows XP and Vista users can still use ShareX 12.0.0 but they won't receive auto updates anymore.

... so, it's ShareX 12.0.0 (2017-11-27) the very last one usable on XP (& Vista); and it's ShareX 12.1.0 (2018-03-19) and later that require Win7+ ;)

EDIT: It's of course OT for this thread, but I actually succeeded in making ShareX 12.1.0 run in Vista SP2 with .NET Framework 4.6.1 installed (highest version of .NET 4.x.x that Vista unofficially accepts ;) ); details in the sister Vista thread...
