Application Error when installing Skype and SkypePortable

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Experts!

I would like to ask how I can fix the issue I am encountering when installing Skype on my Windows 8.1. I am getting an error message. This same error appears when I install SkypePortable on its sandbox. I am running Windows 8.1 64-bit and Sandboxie 4.07.01. Both are activated and updated. I am used to installing programs on their own sandbox so my computer system won't have any entries left if I decide to delete the program. Please help me.

Skype.exe – Application Error

The instruction at 0x76aab1b0 referenced memory at 0x00000009. The memory could not be read.

Click on OK to terminate the program.

Yes you are right in your guess, Sandboxie does blocks Skype as a service. This is true for all versions of Sandboxie. Protecting system from services is one of the core functionality of Sandboxie and it won’t allow you to do that.

There are few options you may try, like install Virtual Machine with Windows 7 or XP and install Skype on them. You may also try to just install in your own system and run it sandboxed.
