Hallo,

on my system Windows XP is running with the latest updates. Now PSI is telling me since weeks my Skype programm Version 4.2.32.155 is unsecure. If I try to install the downloaded solution file (skypesetup.msi) the system tells me, there is already a version running, that I should deinstall with the "software" mode. But I don't want to deinstall my Skype with all adresses gathered! If I try to search for updates out of Skype nothing happens.

What shall I do?!

Thanks, Runkelruebe!

Hi

I think the .msi installer is complaining that Skype is running.
It makes sense that the installer can't remove the old version while it's running.

Try to close down Skype completely (make sure the Skype icon is not in the tray), and then try to run the installer again.

Would be nice, if it would have been so easy: But I'm sorry, it doesn't work! I get still the same message of the system, even after complett closing of Skype. I controlled in the Task manager, if there is still a process running, that is related to Skype, but I couldn't discover anything.....

Thanks for that hint! I tried and it worked, even so there was no question wether I want to keep my contacts or not..... I installed the new version (4.2.32.169) and checked with PSI: no problems anymore! And my contacts are still there.....

Thanks, Runkelruebe!
