skype 3.8

  aitch2 19:41 18 Feb 2009

Can anyone provide a link to skype 3.8. I upgraded to skype 4(beta) and am having so much of a problem that I want to go back to 3.8. Skype only provides 4 from its site, and a google search seems to link me to a lot of eastern sites.

I have Skype 3.8 (the actual download - as saved earlier in My completed downloads).

I have just experimented in sending it to myself via email - if this works I might be able to send it to you via email, thro your yellow envelope, perhaps!!

I will let you, shortly hopefully, if my experiment worked.

Meant to say - "I will let you know, shortly hopefully ...."

Thanks for the reply. If it's successful perhaps we could achieve a mutual response via the yellow envelope.

Skype 4 is no longer in beta. Have you tried the full release.

Sorry Aitch, it didn't work - looked as if it was going to, even got to 100% sending (took 12 minutes), but then got a message, Could not Send!

As Bremner says Version 4 is now the finished jobbie - I am using Skype 4 and it is fine.

Haven't tried skype-4 in full, I'm a little bit reluctant to do so after all the problems with the (4) beta. At least as far as I was concerned 3.8 was more stable, in spite of trying to get a resolve through the skype forums.

Technotiger; looks like our posts crossed. Thanks for the help and offer. Much appreciated. Perhaps I will now try the add/ remove solution and try a clean download.
My thanks to bremmner for the info.Will mark this as resolved.

OK, Cheers, I am sure you will find Version 4 is OK.

I did not like the Beta4 either!
