Skype Install error appears during the installation


Skype is one of the nicest services rendered by Microsoft. The installation of its desktop component is unable to be installed. Here’s how the situation should be fixed.

1. If you have any existing installation of Skype, uninstall it.

2. Download the latest Skype.

3. Install it with administrative right. Right-click on the installer, select “Run as administrator”.

If you’re still having the trouble, then use this Microsoft Fixit tool. Download Microsoft Fixit.
