 Re: No SKYPE, Program Failed

Hi again,

I verified it, I got out my old 10 year old laptop with old skype on it,
and yes, I did login in, no problems, no errors. Edited my number contact
and added Vic.
But, can not log in to skype using gw skype, keeps saying wrong
password, yet it is OK, still ok, and just quits on start...

Hi Again Jo,

Nop, the erasing of history, all cookies, and even entering the password
failed, I also powered down and up to insure all changes took affect. The
cookies list is at 0 cookies so nothing there could change things and all
password/forms and anything to do with staying was removed and the SKYPE
login fails on the GW Icon.
So next test is the standard skype but I think I removed that program.

So, now what to do???

Hi Jo,

It is a nice thought but it can not be for there are no updates in SKYPE
and it worked last week but not now.
I tried just now to go to the web login page for SKYPE and my user name
is right there along with my SKYPE password entry. I sign in and have no
problem going to my account page. It displays my balance and my options.

But, whe clicking on the SKYPE icon to go directly to SKYPE using the GW
Skype icon, it fails every time. It will not accept myt password even when I
manually enter it.

So, something is not right. I will go in and delete my history and see
if that fixes, since I have not done that yet.

Hi, I doubt that it's the name change causing the problem. Probably the
Skype program on the web. Not sure but it could just be a quirk that could
be remedied if you don't have all of your updates and stuff. Don't give up
they'll have a new version out soon. Sometimes I accidentally download a
program twice or I have too much stuff on my screen. You could do a Windows
update and see if that helps.

Now a new problem arised, when clicking the GWSKYPE icon the login fails, a
message saying wrong program name or something like that then a constant
message each time I repeat the login saying my password is wrong.

Now I changed the password, can log into my account using it, but when
going back to the GWSKYPE icon I get the error each and every time an
attempt to log in, fill in the password after the first failure, and it
still fails.

So, what is going on with GW SKYPE now?
Is the name change causing this?
