Fatal error D3DPERF


This problem comes when you don't have directx installed in your PC. First un-install skype. Then download and install the latest directx. If DirectX11 don't help, then use DirectX9. get it from http://www.microsoft.com/games/en-us/aboutgfw/pages/directx.aspx. Then reinstall the skype. Your problem will go away.

No to worry. When this happened on my system I had asked it to create a log file. After checking the log I found that skype returns the error message after installing the application! If I am not wrong that should be the case in your system too. Check in start->programs to see if its already installed.
Also you may want to install this hotfix to avoid future problems with skype.
