Logitech cordless internet handset for skype -- base unit problem

I've purchased a logitech skype cordless phone. And having trouble configurating it.

I am running windows vista, and when installing the driver of the phone and running it. I've downloaded the latest driver for the phone (v191) -- it seems it can not find the skype application although it is running and working properly. Furthermore when loading the driver it notes that it can not find the base unit.

In addition I tried installing the driver on vmware with windows xp on it. On that case the driver works fine (recognizing the skype application). But it can not find the base unit. The button on the base unit of the logitech phone can contact the phone when "paging home phone" (means that the base unit can connect the phone properly) -- and it sees that the windows finds properly the base unit (I think anyways)

How can I solve this problem?

You can uninstall the Skype Application and reinstall it in compatiblity mode and chose XP. To do this right click on the install exe and go to the compatibility tab/section and from the drop down chose XP. Then try reinstalling it.
That has solved a lot of issue for me with Vista.
Let me know if you need anymore help or if that does not solve your issue.
Thanks,
CompGoddess

HI I am running Vista and want to install a Logitech Skype cordless phone I am hearing there can be a problem, please advise if I can do this before I buy the item Thx Robyn


You can run it in compatability mode.

Make sure you do nothing for the graphics option or it will mess up your settings. Also, enable the "always run in compatibility mode" option.

After doing this, it worked perfect on my vista64 and my XP64. Have not tried Windows 7 x64 yet.

Doesn´t work on mac


The logitech Download Centre doesn't provide any Mac Drivers for your device.

The best thing to do is either wait for the drivers to come out or buy another product supported by Mac

cheers

You advice was such a blessing


Haven't experienced this one, it should open if you right click on the icon in the tray at the bottom.

However you should still be able to change your Skype options, click on "skype", then "Tools", then "Options", then "Audio Settings", change microphone and speakers to "logitech" or whatever your computer has listed your device as. This should have the effect of changing logitech to "use handset" and gets the same result. Unfortunately the phone will never work as good as it should, for instance I can't make test calls. I hope this helpful.

Logitech Cordless Internet Hnadset Phone on VISTA! for SKYPE


Handset shows DISCONNECTED.
On Logitech support page lookup document 6674 (search).
Boot computer with minimum og services and programs running.
Start Logitech handset program - this starts skype.
the handset will disconnect.
As soon I start the new LIVE MESSENGER BETA - the hanset disconnect.
Therefor I installed a msn messenger extension in Skype extras.
This gives me the opertunity to use msn messenger without using the LIVE MESSENGER PROGRAM - if I do - Logitech Handset will not work.
