Skype crash on Windows with offset 006eb5e2


Probably an obscure issue I'll never experience again, but in case it does, I found a solution in a thread on Yahoo Answers that worked.

Run one of the commands below in a Command Prompt or just stick it into the Run dialog (win + r). Then restart Skype *sigh*... 🙄

Windows XP

> del "%userprofile%\Application Data\Skype\shared.xml"

Windows 7 (and Vista?)

> del "%appdata%\Skype\shared.xml"

📝 You may of course also find and delete the file by using Windows Explorer. I just prefer a quick one-off command. 🙂
