SOURCE: trying to download skype and we keep getting

Download some programs like Skype are vulnerable when it's not running or invalid win32 application occur. Here are a reason why:
* Maybe your Antivirus are very strong to protect on your system when it talks about downloading.
* Next is keep your operating system clean or tuneup before downloading such file on the web.
* Next is keep your system updated, for this reason there are some parts on the registry where broken and capable of not installing such skype programs.
* Last is when it's still have the problem exist even one ore more programs that are displaying win32 invalid application, reinstall your sytem.
That is all the best part when encounter the problem like this.
Good luck!

How can I run two Skype accounts on the same computer?


To use more than one Skype account on the same computer at the same time you need to start a new instance of Skype.
1.
From the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run (or press the Windows and R keys on your keyboard at the same time)
2.
In the Run window, enter the following command (include the quotes) and press OK:
"C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
If you get an error message, copy and paste the exact command from this page and try again.
Be aware that if you have changed the installation path for Skype then you will need to enter the correct path for the Skype.exe file.
If this solution fails, you can try another option:
1.Find the Skype executable file (Skype.exe) in: C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\
2.Right click on it and select Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
3.Locate the shortcut on the desktop, then right-click on it and select Properties
4.In the Target field, add: /secondary. The Target field should now be "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
5.Click OK. You can now start a new instance of Skype every time you double-click the new shortcut.

Missing files to run skype


It could just be a confused shortcut. Try and Run it from it's actual file location. If it still breaks it's internal to the application. Delete through Control Panel then...

Download and run a new install from here:

Dear Digjay,

Please Rate this solution.

for using webcam in yahoo messenger,all you have to do is go to the yahoo messenger settings and set the camera. On the bottom of my messenger there is a camera button that turns the cam on.

for installing skype


Downloading and Installing Skype Step1 Go to the Skype Web site (see the Resources section below for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable. (The executable gets downloaded under the Program Files folder under a directory called Skype that gets automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically seen on your desktop.) Step2 Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears. You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file, SkypeSetup.exe. Click Run. Note: Another confirmaton message may come up asking if you are sure you want to Run this software. Click "Run" again. Step3 Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup Wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software. At the end of the installation you will be asked to setup a Skype account. Step4 A Skype window appears and if you have never used Skype before you have the option of creating a Skype account. A link is seen on that window mentioning the following: "Don't have a Skype name?" Click on this link and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window where you have to type in your Full Name and then you have to type in a "Skype Name" and a Skype "Password" and "Repeat Password" in the respective fields on that window. Note: Jot down this Skype Name and Skype Password as you will need it everytime you open the Skype application. Step5 Click on the "Sign in" button. Note: After having created this new Skype Name account for the first time, the next time you open Skype again, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button. Step6 Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to "Add a Contact" using the "Add Contact" button, to test your headset and microphone using the "Skype Test Call Feature," to set up a Conference Call with a business colleague or friend, and to explore all the other features in Skype. Step7 Once you have installed the Skype software, there are 2 ways by which you can open the Skype software application. Click on the Skype icon on your desktop Or Double click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time. Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.
