Skypefor Vista

I had Skype on my old laptop that was running XP. I now have a new laptop running Vista. Is there a version of Skype that is compatable with Vista?

Skype is compatible with Vista - I have friends with Vista and Skype.

Unfortunately only Windows 2000 and XP are listed on the Skype website as being compatible.

Thanks for a fast response.

When I go to the download page for Skype, it says you need a pc running Windows 2000 or XP.

I will download it and give it a go.

Yes I know - but believe me, it is OK with Vista.

In view of Technotiger's experience, the best way is to actually try the latest version (

3.5.0239 is the latest version and works fine with Vista

Use your email address Search for yourself in Skype :-))

How do I do that? I can't log on

Hmm, does your Skype window open ok? Does it not give you access to Tools>Search for Skype users?

Sorry, I can't remember what the window looks like prior to logging on, mine does it all automatically.

Or, ask one of your Contacts to do a Search for you using your email address - this should turn up your User name.
