If you like me, depending on Skype for software support and Microsoft messes things up with an update...
Well lets just leave it there, shall we....?
Ok so this is what you see after the upgrade.
I tried different solutions and even changed my password but it seemed like Microsoft wanted to forse me to create yet another "free" account to do something that I have been doing for years now... Have a chat and a bit of banter with my clients while helping them solve some seemingly impossible task using one of the numerous features in XMS Systems to easily accomplish what they set out to do.
After the password change it magically started to work again and I thought my problem was solved.
Today I fired up my pc and noticed skype didn't start, clicked the icon and horror of horrers the same messed up screen faded into view.
Now being a web application developer and all, I quickly realise that the messed up bit is typically what would happen if a css style sheet is missing. But that can not be because the "program" is downloaded and installed as an exe file. Everything should be in there isn't it?
Well I opened my browser determined to find the solution and after a couple of false starts I found a video discussing exactly the css issue and decided to give it a try.
For now this has worked for me. If it stop again I will revisit this article with the next solution.
Somehow I have the feeling I will be back.
