    Skype not working with Mountain Lion

    From the time I have installed Mountain Lion the Skype application won't work in my Macbook at all. Why is it like this? What should I do to make it work? Is there any instructions to be followed? Thank you.

    Hi..........

    Yeah! I have got your problem.

    1.While updating your Mac OS to Mountain Lion some of the Skype files may be deleted or corrupted.

    2.That's why you try to re-install that software.

    3.As you have upgraded your Mac OS you try to update the :Skype: even.

    4.You do one thing clean install.
    That means you delete all the Plist,Preference files,application support files and caches later you restart your Mac and try to install the Skype software.

    Have a nice day.............

    Hi...................,

    Make sure that ---------->
    * Skype is downloaded fully in system.
    * Crashed files will not work to open it.
    * You must have 3G net to run and download skype.
    * Low net will always create such issue.
    * So remove current skype file and have a fast net connection.
    * Now download skype in your device as you did earlier.

    Thanks

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.Firstly check that some of it's files may be deleted accidentally.

    2.So you try to recover the files which have been deleted.

    3.or you perform the clean delete of all the files of the Skype.

    4.And now you freshly install the Skype in your mac.

    5.Even if it does not work then the file from which you have installed may be corrupted.

    6.So you try to download the software by going to the website 'http://beta.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-mac/'.

    7.Then you install in your mac i hoe it will work now for sure.

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    All the best.....................

    Re: Skype not working with Mountain Lion

    It generally happens if you have already installed the skype after that you are installing the mountain lion then in this process some of the crack files of the skype get deleted due to which you are not able to use the skype ........
    So, if possible then install the crack files only otherwise you can uninstall the skype and then re install it..........
    Be sure that you must download the latest version of the skype.............
    After that restart your system and enjoy skyping with your friends.........

    Re: Skype not working with Mountain Lion

    Dear Friend...

    This is issue is simply about the compatibility due to which you are not able to access or use Skype messenger in your MacBook device.
    There are so many application which are not compatible with Mac. For this, software's manufactures's create there compatible version specially with Mac.

    Same thing happens here. If you are trying to install the Windows version of Skype, then it won't install in your MacBook device. For this, you need to download the compatible version of Skype Messenger which you can install easily and also access to it.
    For this, you can download the Skype from the following link:-

    1. http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-mac/
    2. http://skype.en.softonic.com/mac/download

    Once you download this, install in your MacBook device and the issue has been resolved now,
    Thank you...
