Skype has been added to the archive.

http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=skype

If anyone has old versions not listed there, please post them in this thread. Emails are still not fixed as of now and the form has not been optimized to work correctly. That should be functional later today.

The Winamp section has also been updated to include versions 5.03-5.08.

If anyone knows which current versions are outdated for the programs currently listed on our main site, please post in this thread and let me know. For any outdated programs on our site - if anyone has old versions pertaining to them; post them here. I appreciate all of your efforts and help in keeping this site up to date.

It doesnt seem worth it posting all the older skype versions Alex,THEY HAVE BEEN DISABLED......... (They dont logon)

Me and a friend were gonna try and figure out how they are blocking them so we can re-enable them.......We found a file "skypeversionchecker.dll" that might be 1 way they are stopping older versions from working,...We havent looked into it further yet though.........

We have received numerous requests for Skype old versions so there must be some reason people want them. Even if a program does not function how it's supposed to, that doesn't mean some people don't have uses for them.

Lastly, there is a need to archive cultural artifacts. If software is allowed to disappear into the past, a piece of our history will be lost. People must be have access to this data in order to understand the direction the computer industry and civilization as a whole is heading.

YA i gue$$ your right buddy i dunno.........

If some1 knows how to do it i would LOVE KNOWING HOW!!! -- I would love running 0.97.0.40 again!! (The newer builds dont work on 98se,way too memory heavy/hogging) For awhile all you had to do was block thier URL (Add it to your host file -- "127.0.0.1 ui.skype.com") But unfortunetly that trick was posted on SKYPES OWN SITE!!!! And it was quickly Corrected http://www.myfilestash.com/userfiles/thedude/icon04.gif

That file SKYPEVERSIONCHECKER.DLL has to be the way they verify the version your running when you try and logon.........I wonder if just deleting the file would be productive......http://www.myfilestash.com/userfiles/thedude/confused.gif

Im really upset cause i used to love skype!!

Ah well
