Base from the description of your problem that the issue started after doing a upgrade to Windows 7, the best thing to do in here is to uninstall skype and reinstall using the latest version from Skype's web site to ensure that it will be working fine with Windows 7.

    Let me check if I'm correct you cannot continue with the upgrade on your Skype phone is that right? if that's the case follow this steps.

    1. select menu (far left button on your skypephone - MENU)
    2. go to settings
    3. phone settings
    4. select display
    5. choose screensaver settings
    6. select Activated time change from 10sec default to 60 seconds
    7. Save
    8. Go back to Skype button (application) follow the upgrade

    Thank you for the information, if you still have the setup disc for that VOIP 321 you need to run that to your computer to correct the problem but if not go download it from the manufacturers web site.

How to download and install skype on my windows 7 desktop computer?


To install Skype, download the latest version from the Skype website. Do not download Skype from anywhere else.
The Skype install file is about 1MB in size. When you run the install file, the installer will download the Skype application (about 20MB) in the background. If your internet connection drops while this is happening, the installer will resume the download as soon as connectivity is restored.
If you do not wish to use the light installer, download the full installer (around 22MB).

The system requirements for running Skype on different operating systems are described below. Please ensure that your system meets these requirements, and that you have the equipment you need, before downloading the latest version of Skype.
Version : Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
(32-bit and 64-bit versions supported)
Processor : At least 1GHz
RAM : At least 256 MB
Additional software DirectX v9.0 or above

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave us a testimonial commetn).

I have an operating system Windows 2000 and when I installed e new version of Skype (5.3) the program refuses to start and show next message: Failed to get proc address for SetIdDirectoryW (kernell32.dll)....


System requirements for Skype 5.3
  • PC running Windows® XP, Vista or 7, both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.
  • Internet connection - broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
  • Speakers and microphone - built-in or separate.
  • For voice calls recommend broadband connection with 100 kbps down / 100 kbps up.
  • For group video calling everyone on the call needs Skype 5.0 for Windows or Mac or higher plus webcams, and at least one person needs a group video calling subscription. For best quality we recommend you use a high-speed broadband connection of 4Mbps down / 512kbps up and a computer with a Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz processor. As a minimum you'll need a high-speed broad connection of 512kbps down / 128kbps up and a computer with a 1 GHz processor.
Note :Please consider in Processor, RAM, VGA and harddisk. those the main thing to decide whatever Skype 5.3 for Windows can be installed properly in computer system or not. If one of those minimum requirements can't be achieved by your hardware, please don't even try to install Skype 5.3for Windows.. Leave comment if you have something to ask!!

"please upgrade your operating system"


I had the same problem. Bought a CIT300 off ebay. Cisco/Linksys no longer provide drivers for this device. I'm running Windows 7. I downloaded a driver from Softpedia, says it is from Microsoft dated 7/12/13 version 6.1.7601.18208. It solved my problems. Hope this helps.

Webcam is not useable after upgrading to Windows 7. Webcam works with Skype and Google video chat, but not otherwise. Cannot recored a video.


See if the drivers are up to date for Windows 7. It could be that the program you are using (or came with your computer) isn't compatible with Windows 7.
