Microsoft ending support for classic Skype (version 7) N̶o̶v̶e̶m̶b̶e̶r̶ ̶1 January 8

That might be the reason why that particular version still works.
And versions later then that dont.

The only thing is wenn you need to downgrade to 7.36, you will have install it offline,
then disable the auto update service in msconfig.
Then wenn you sign in then you directly need to disable the auto update function that sits in the client aswell.
Otherwise it will update itself anyways.

i suppose the blockage of the 7.36 version goes in phases.
I does not work anymore in holland.

So its highly likely your version will be shutdown soon.
So enjoy while you still can :wink:

But for me and another friend Skype 7.36.0.101 is blocked from signing in as per 28th of feb.
The fix lasted precisely one month.

Hope that one version of the 7 series gets working again.
But i have my doubts.
The new version 8.40 is still junk, and lacks split screen view still.
And from what i understand, split screen view won’t be added to Skype for desktop.
So in other words to get atleast some of the nice functionality back from the 7 versions,
We are forced to get on windows10.

I did found this site about forceed updates.

From what i read they seem to have a version of skype 7.41.32.101 for buisnesses that might still work.
But yeah i’m not sure if they are any trusted source
@TReKiE Do you maybe have an offline installer from the 7.41.32.101 version maybe?

This morning I woke up to Skype 7 endlessly trying to reconnect without success and still is trying to do so. Is it still working for anyone else?

Its probablly a global issue,
And i’m not sure if this issue is version number specific.
At my end it does connect, loads contactlist, but the blue circle cicles endlessy.
I saw a post about it in the skype forum, and that user had the latest version.
So i suppose there is a global issue with the sevice.

Did you check if skype 8 does connect?

Also skype 7.36 has not worked for me for a couple of weeks already.
It gets me the forced update.

Seems they the outage of yesterday was actually to nuke skype 7.
Weird thing is that even users on version 8 seem to have had issues,
and forced to update to a newer version.
Also outlook online seems to have got an update, so my guess that it might be the final,
nail to the coffin for skype 7 classic.
