I think that it comes from the different of some components installed.

Skype.exe

it is created when skype.exe is starting.

But fail to create them on my environment.

I'll try to prepare such an image. The problem is not about receiving but about sending messages. Nothing happens when you click ENTER.

Edit: I've just send you the file on Twitter. Please check your PM.

Thx tomasz86
But on your Image Skype 6.1 crashes Runtime Error same as me.
Your version is v6.0
I find that you can send message facemark only .

Is there anyone can run Skype 6.1 without Runtime Error ?

I have to give you a no as well. 6.0 doesn't send messages, I can receive them though. 6.1 installs but I get a runtime error as well.

I've just done some testing. The last version of Skype where you can send messages is 5.9.0.123. Sending messages doesn't work starting from versions 5.10.x.x. I've uploaded some of the older Skype versions to my Download Archive (navigate to Programs/Skype). After installing Skype 5.9.0.123 make sure that automatic updates are disabled in its settings.

Just in case here you can find changelog for Skype 5.10.

Edit: This registry entry seems to do the job when it comes to blocking Skype autoupdates:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Skype\Phone]
"DisableVersionCheckPolicy"=dword:00000001

blackwingcat has managed to find a way to run Skype 6.1 and newer in Windows 2000:

http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/1759259.html

Unfortunately sending messages doesn't work (yet?) so Skype 5.9.0.123 is still the last fully functional version.

I try to install Exetended kernel v23a and Skype 6.2 in VMWare image which you provided at first.
But It seems no problem to send messages. :ph34r:

I try to install Exetended kernel v23a and Skype 6.2 in VMWare image which you provided at first.
But It seems no problem to send messages. :ph34r:

I'm trying to do it right now but still nothing happens when trying to send text (only sending emoticons works). Would it be a problem for you to upload the WMWare image where sending messages work again?

I've managed to make it work in a VM but can't on my desktop. I'll try to do more tests to find out what the problem is about.

Edit: After more testing:

  • Skype 6.2 works with BWC Kernel v23a but doesn't with UURollup-v11 daily. I don't know yet what the reason is.
  • There's a problem though. After installing Skype 6.2 using blackwingcat's installer everything seems to work fine... but after reboot system fonts become something like this:

Normaliz.dll was the culprit in case of UURollup (more info here).

FontLink Setting is for Japanese one.

You can recover registry from %systemroot%\repair\system
Load Hive and Export it.

or Install Japanese setting.

Skype 6.9 and 6.10 on Windows 2000 crashes when its logon sequence.

 

It seems call   "jmp [edx] (edx=0x00000204)."

How do I catch this exception (I want to know this call address.)?. Are there any ideas?

Skype 6.9/6.10 seem to require Windows XP Service Pack 3, and it seems to me an error I had when it was installed on Service Pack 2, it was related to CPU info or something like that. I doubt that answers your question but I think it might help you get started. All I know is the newest Skype versions will NOT work on Windows XP Service Pack 2 and below.
