Can't open Skype error 1712


First:

Hi please click on your apple icon top left, click on "Force Quit", then Force Quite Skype if it's in the List.

Second:

Open Your Macintosh HD, usually top right, and go to your Applications folder, find and open your "Utilities" folder, now open "Activity Monitor", now you'll see a list of items, scroll through the list, if Skype is in the list, select it then in the top left of the box click on the "Force Quit" button.

Try Skype again, if this doesn't work try option 3

Third:

Download AppCleaner open it and then at the same time open your Applications folder where place your pointer over the Skype icon, and drag onto AppCleaner, once the delete button is active, click delete. This will delete all Skype files from your system.

Now go to Download Skype for Desktop and click the "Get Skype For Mac" button, install this new version of Skype and your done.

Happy Skype-ing, I hope this fixes your problem :-)

First of all try removing Skype from your system, then download again, and re-install the Skype software. You may find this cures the problem.

I have skype on my stationary computer. How can I get to my skype on my laptop?


On your laptop you need to download skype and install it, feed it your login and password etc. Just because you have something on one computer doesn't mean it's on the other one. Since Skype is free just go download it from skype.com or google for "skype", if you need to know your version of Windows, take your mouse to the bottom left corner and hit the button, then give a Right-Click on "My Computer" and go to Properties, this will bring up a screen detailing every question you could be asked about your computer before a program like Skype lets you download, if necessary.

Programs can't be run from your stationary computer on your laptop, or vice versa, unless you were inclined to run a remote session but judged by how you worded your question, this is not what you're looking for. Also, with remote you'd defeat the purpose of Skype-ing unless you were sitting at your computer with your laptop infront of you. Yeah, I doubt that's what you need, just go get Skype running on your laptop.

Skype keeps freezing


Download the same exact installation for Skype and then right click and select "Run as Administrator." Now go through the entire setup. Then restart the computer and then use Control Panel to remove Skype. Restart one more time and the problem should be gone!

Skype application not opening, stuck on java logo screen


Instead of attempting to load Skype on your phone you may want to consider downloading Nimbuzz. It works just like Skype - is free to use - and seems to have better results.

It combines all your buddies from Skype, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, Google Talk and more.

To get Nimbuzz simply go to this link and type in your phone number and the program will be sent to your phone.

Nimbuzz, click here: http://tiny.cc/jYC6s

Using my built in webcam


Normal 0 First, download SKYPE from this site ( http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/windows/beta/ ) and install it. Then let all your family and friends know you’re on Skype and give them your ID. After they get on Skype and you know their ID's add them to you Contacts in Skype. After you connect up with them you can turn on the camera on so they can see you. Skype is a free download and free to converse by computer without paying and several people at a time.. It only costs if you call a telephone number from your computer while on Skype. Once you get the hang of it , you will enjoy it.

Hope this helps, Bud.

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.
