Skype error launching the program with referenced memory

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

When I want to open Skype this error appears. Is not first of this kind and they all started to appear after I made some updates to my Windows XP. Now I don’t know how to solve this and what is the best solution for. The reinstall of the Skype is not working. Please tell me what should I do to fix this. Should I reinstall my Windows 7 or is there any other ways to fix this ?

Thanks !

Skype error launching the program with referenced memory


Normally, this is just a random memory error caused by the program. Try restarting Skype and see if the error appears again. If it doesn’t work and the error appears again, restart your computer and start Skype again. See if it works. If that doesn’t work either, you are probably using an old version. Download the latest version, Skype for Windows. It supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.

Since you are using Microsoft Windows XP, check if you are running Service Pack 3. To do this, right-click My Computer and then select Properties or click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, and then select System. Under System, you will see your operating system’s current Service Pack like for example, Service Pack 3. See image.

If you see a different Service Pack like for example, Service Pack 2, you need to update your operating system. Download Windows XP Service Pack 3. After downloading the Service Pack 3 package, double-click on the installer to begin updating your operating system to Windows XP Service Pack 3. Restart your computer when it is finished and then you can now install Skype.
