So I've had to do yet another clean Windows 7 install at work and naturally a new Skype install of course.
I downloaded the latest version and have been running it quite happily for a couple of weeks until it starts to nag me about updating again to the latest version, which it cant do when you click yes, because it says another version is running.
You can see where this is going right?
Well, I wouldn't know about a newer version would I, if I didn't have Skype running in the first place?
So a deep breath before I punch the monitor and decide to uninstall Skype only to find that it's not listed in programs and features to change or uninstall or even an uninstall option in start/programs, Skype.
Since I can't uninstall the thing, I decide to download the 'latest' version, which is of course a web installer, not standalone.
This brings me back to square one with no option to uninstall Skype or update it.
I suppose there's a way to amend the registry and stop the update nag, but that's not really the point is it?
There are solutions online for this 1638 error, but surely it's the responsibility of Microsoft to sort this issue?
What really bugs me is why the Skype uninstall option cannot be found through conventional means.
