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...

I got your answer from: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA829/How-can-I-run-two-Skype-accounts-on-the-same-computer

In order 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 any error messages, please copy and paste the exact command from this email and try again.

Please keep in mind that if you have changed the installation path for Skype then you 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 choose: Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
  3. Locate the shortcut on the desktop, then right-click on it and choose Properties

For Skype 3.8 and earlier Requirements: Windows XP, Two Skype User accounts

First, create a new Windows user by going to the Control Panel and clicking on User Accounts. Choose Create a new account and follow the steps to set permissions. We also suggest setting a password for the new user by clicking on the newly created user and choosing the Set Password option. The new user will also require admin rights on your PC.

Next, create a shortcut to Skype or make a copy of the shortcut that is already in the Start menu. Right-click this new shortcut and choose Properties. On the bottom of the first page there is a button labelled Advanced... . Click this button and select Run with different credentials. Select OK, and then select OK again to close the Properties dialog.

You're all set. Whenever you use this new shortcut it will ask for a Windows username and password. Enter the Skype Name and password of the user you created earlier by choosing The following user: option. Click OK and you'll have a second instance of Skype. It will require that you sign in with your Skype Name and password the first time.

To help automate the Run as trick you can create a second desktop icon for Skype and modify its properties. Click the Advanced button and check the box Run with different credentials. After clicking on the modified icon it will ask you to sign in as another user. Changing the icon graphic also helps ensure you click on the correct icon.

If you have multiple USB headsets or USB Phones you should be able to set up both instances of Skype to use a different sound device.
