Hello Sieghard,

 

Microsoft just announced they had changed their minds due to public opposition.  You will see notes on that further down in your inbox.

What’s the point, it won’t work any more in about 24 or 25 days.

Hi All,

 

It took me several attempts before I found a download of Classic Skype version 7, in a form where it would not automatically switch to and install version 8.  The link is below.

One hint.  When you start the installation, there is a link to “more options”.  Click on this, and there are 2 check boxes for you to decide whether to include the described feature, e.g. make Bing your default search engine.  Click continue, and the installation will go the rest of the way.
