Cant run or stall skype


Are you getting an error message when you try to install Skype? The error code would help, if you could write it down if it shows one. Download a fresh install of Skype from here:

Am trying to install Skype, I keep on getting error code 1618 which says that another program is installing, complete installation before installing skype. I do not have another program installing. so what...


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.

Getting error code 1923


Error 1923: Service 'Office Source Engine' (ose) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.

Before you install the original release version of the 2007 Office programs, you must remove all prerelease versions of the 2007 Office programs. Additionally, we recommend that you restart the computer before you install the original release version of the 2007 Office programs.
