skype with video? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all

    i have been trying to get skype working on windows embedded 8.1 ind enterprise.when i switch to camera the system hangs and i have to re-boot.

    i have tried the app store ver and client ver 6.21.0.104 both hang at the same stage of testing.

    interestingly i downloaded an obseleate ver of skype 6.3.0.107 and bingo it worked great for three hours then it repeatedly asked me to change my password as it was being used on another pc.

    all my system drivers are up to date and i have tried several camera`s

    any news from anyone would be greatfull.

    best regards topper.

  • I have heard of some issues with Skype from the store. I am sticking with the older version until they get the bugs worked out.
