how to update contacts status on skype preview?

Q: how to update contacts status on skype preview?

I have Lumia 640 XL. I installed Skype Preview on Win 10.
Contacts whose status is online are labeled as offline.
This applies only sporadically.
No other status flag is not shown with the exception of 'Call forwarding'.

Preferred Solution: how to update contacts status on skype preview?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:spam send in skype account to all skype contacts - cannot load page safety scan

I downloaded the safety scanner from microsoft from my other laptop without any issue.
 
copied it to a usb, put it on the problem laptop, a full scan and nothing found.
 
I realize I did had a antivirus paid version (kaspersky internet securuity) on the laptop, as I first said that it had no antivirus.
 
I only disabled it because it had problems running.
 
Now I enabled it, updated it and run a full scan. nothing found.
 
I don't know if skype is the cause and not a virus?  the skype workers told me that the cause could be anything (email, virus on computer).
 
I mostly use skype on iphone, and here I'm confused with what the skype workers said: one said that iphone can not be infected, so no need to check the iphone.
an other said: you can download an app from app store to scan for viruses, because it is possible that the virus is on the iphone.
 
This is really not clear anymore.

I have both on my Windows 10 pc and only Skype Preview seems to actually work. What's really weird is I can't find much about either online, so I'm not even sure if Messaging + Skype is being continued or even still functional. Does it require a companion phone app to work? (I use Android). Messaging + Skype can't seem to find any of my Skype contacts while Skype Preview can.
Just really confused on how barebones and non-functional this all seems, even after some Googling. Can anyone shed some light for me?

I am trying to run Skype Preview (updated this week - but can't get the version number) on my Lumia 950XL (OS 10.0.14393.351)
It displays the splash screen and after 15 seconds or so. it crashes (so I can't get the version number).
I have tried to uninstall and then re-install, but it doesn't correct the problem.

Is there a setting I need to change or is this a known problem with the app?

Just picked up my SP3 and opened Skype preview and I have lost the ability to send and recieve sms texts, the settings have changed and no mention of it, yet it was working fine yesterday.
I noticed in the store/updates that Skype was updated, but it looks like a downgrade to me.
Showing 11.8.192.0 as a version for the update.

I have to start this by saying I much prefer Skype preview over Messaging SMS / / Skype preview the desktop version but I have tried my hardest to use Skype preview to send and receive SMS messages using my XL's allowences Unfortunatly it makes a real pigs ear of it ruins the People app contacts need linking then they unlink at times some do and others don't then in the preview you end up with contacts all over the place and then sometimes it just doesn't work you lose the ability to send SMS you have two options of Skype and if the number shows up it often asks to verify the number and still doesn't work I have spent many many hours of frustration with this and I know what I am doing with it but until it improves I have had to take the SMS function off and put my Messaging app back on my phone screen Just nosing around on my PC and SP and noticed the messaging app that never really did anything since they took SMS messaging off of it in favour of Skype preview and I noticed it now shows all my SMS's I got my phone and checked the messaging app and there is a new setting of Sync across devices and it was turned on On checking on the PC and SP it is read only at the moment but at least it's of the way there I really want to be able to send SMS from my PC but couldn't live with the Skype preview mix as it ended up busting two app and my pedantic lifestyle so please MS give us the option to use messaging to send SMS until you get Skype preview sorted or SMS / Messaging / Skype preview I can happily live with two working apps one for each function

Hi, I just installed Skype on W10, and it's automatically given me a whole bunch of contacts that I've never heard of. I can't delete them from Skype, so where are they? I don't have any contacts in Outlook, and they aren't in my Gmail either.
Where are they, and how do I get rid of them?
I un-installed the default W10 Skype, and installed the downloaded generic version, but they are still there.
Any help please, or is this another instance of Microsoft saying "There, there, don't worry. We know what's good for you and your computer."

Hello, I cannot seem to locate the option to see our contacts list which are online only. All previous versions of Skype from years past had this basic feature. Very cumbersome to scroll through all contacts. Am I overlooking something here?

A:Skype Preview Win10 Mobile

Just checked and I can't find it either, but the clue is in the word "Preview", there are many things missing at the moment, I do believe Skype plan to add many new features in the future but for now, that is what we have.
On a PC you of course can continue to use the desktop version, but on the phone we have the preview, which personally I think is far better than the old mobile or app versions of Skype.

Hi,

I just bought a computer with Windows 8 and I have a little problem.

Skype and Messenger are together now. It's ok.
But my Messenger contacts are on Skype AND on the app Messages
And when one of them send me a message I receive it on both Skype and Messages apps.

How can I change this ? Can I juste disable Messages app ?

Thanks.

PS : I'm french, sorry for the mistakes and I hope my Win8 apps are the sames as you :/

A:Messenger and Skype contacts x2

You can either disable notifications from messenger in the PC Settings, or simply uninstall the messenger app, since you have all contacts on skype.

Could someone please help me with getting my webcam to work with skype. They can see me, but I can't see them for some reason. My logitech camera is working fine without skype. I'm NOT seeing any video feed image in my preview screen to adjust the video settings... just a blacked out screen... and they can see and hear me fine when on a video call. I'm using Windows XP with a Service Pack 3... plently of internet speed. I would like to see my grand children while on a video chat with them. I can only hear them currently. This happens no matter who I attempt to video chat with. Thank you kindly for your assistance if you can.
 

A:No Preview Video Feed Image using Skype

You camera is apparently/obviously working fine. If it wasn't, they wouldn't be able to see you. You not being able to see them or not being able to see your cam is likely a software or configuration issue. FIrst step, uninstall Skype or whatever other software you are trying to use, reboot, and install Skype again.

So this is something that's been bothering me for a while.. And I'm aware that Skype forums would probably be a better place for asking, but I like this forum so I thought I'd try here first. Anyway, I'm not stupid when it comes to computers. I know how you normally disable (or at least hide) the preview pane, but the usual button for doing so isn't there. I'll show screenshots below to prove this. But first I have to ask; Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it?

Hi all, I recently installed the latest version of skype on my Windows 7 64bit OS.

For some reason every time I open skype I no longer see my contacts and if they show up no status is available. Where as I see every one's activity on my IPAD. In addition, after a couple of seconds of logging on skype the program crashes and causes other applications on my system to stop working like the audio, windows media player and media player classic.

Tried everything from uninstalling and reinstalling older versions to adding exceptions on Windows Firewall etc. No luck reached. Any input is highly helpful.

Thanks in advance.

I have set the Skype preferences so that only people in my contact list can contact me, but somehow people keep putting themselves in my contact list without my knowledge and sending dubious links. I keep reporting abuse but it makes no difference.

I have done general virus and adware scans but it hasn't helped.

Any suggestions?

I was trying to set up skype and used my Microsoft account details as it suggested (which we use on our PC but have never used on the phone). I never did get skype app working, but after all that, the phone contact list has disappeared - it's just empty. The shortcut tiles to people on the home screen have also disappeared.
How to get it back? I got online and removed the phone from the Microsoft accounts list. But then it said to reset the phone, which I don't want to do as it warned that all pictures/data/personalisation would be removed?
How can I get the contacts list back?

It's a Microsoft Lumia 550, running Windows 10 mobile. when going to outlook on the browser, go the people tab and see if your contacts still show there

Hi everyone,

Just need to know if whether or not it is normal for Windows Update to include an update for skype among the list of updates.

I've already hidden this skype update as I had planned to uninstall skype for so long but kept forgetting to do it.

Any comments and ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all and God Bless,

A:skype update listed in Windows Update

Ye - it's normal, since MS bought Skype a few months ago, it's now part of the Microsoft Update family, along with Office and MSE

I'm hoping someone can assist me....I pulling data into excel from 2 sources onto one sheet. I have lots of info coming in & I now want to create a simple report from all this data. The data has various project numbers & each project has multiple line items. I would like to simply have 3 things on a different sheet, a search box where I can input any project number then the search should yield the project status & the furthest date of all my line items for that project. The project status & furthest date are available in my data I previously mentioned

A:Project status update help

The simplest way would be with a LOOKUP() of some sort.Cell A1 is your search box=IF(A1<>"",VLOOKUP(A1,SheetName!A1:B10,2,FALSE),"")Depending on where your data resides on the other sheets,just do two lookups, one for Project Status, and one for Date.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

Hi:

I have always set Windows Update to 'no', since I regularly update anyway. I use 'custom' and carefully select which updates are appropriate. So I had XP Home Windows Update set to 'no'.

When I started Windows today, I got a message that Windows Update was downloading IE7 and requesting whether I wanted to restart. I selected 'later'. I looked at Windows Security and saw that Windows Update had changed my selection to 'yes' for updating. When I went to Windows Update to change it back, no option was allowed, they were all faded. I restarted, but no change.

Any ideas how to change back to 'no' and keep it there?
Thanks.

A:Confusing Failed/Successful Status After Update

I don't think you are missing anything but I'm not a expert.

All I would do is reboot 3 or 4 times today and check for Windows Updates manually and see if you have any problems.

Your Windows Updates might be trying to work around/with McAfee.
McAfee is normally not friendly with Windows 7.

Tweaking com Windows repair tool was applied at a local service repair.
There is an irony to this since this tool has been referenced repeatedly in this forum. I gave up after multiple failed updates for this Oct.11/16 update and took the laptop to a service.
Basically the repair tool log listed that Windows Update, Windows Component Store were repaired. Windows Services and Windows Com unmarshalers were restored.
There are no errors in this Laptop Event Viewer now either and its a new Software Distribution Folder so history is gone.

The service tech downloaded this tweaking.com windows repair tool.zip and extracted it into the laptop downloads folder.
I will have to investigate if it is a portable app and able to be shifted to another location.

A:Can not update to windows 8.1 preview.

How do I install Windows 8.1 Preview?

There are two ways to install Windows 8.1 Preview: through the Windows Store or through the ISO.
If you're running Windows 8 in one of the 13 languages that the preview is available in, we strongly recommend that you download the preview from theWindows Store. When you install from the Store, you can't create installation media but must download the preview directly from the Windows Store. If you're runningWindows RT, the only way you can update is through the Store. Updating through the Store will give you the same edition of Windows 8.1 Preview as the edition ofWindows 8 you're currently running. (For example, if you are updating from Windows 8 Pro, you will update to Windows 8.1 Pro Preview.) To see if you can update through the Store, see Download Windows 8.1 Preview.
If you're running Windows 8 and you want to install Windows 8.1 Preview using the ISO, it's important that you know where your Windows 8 product key is. When you update to the final edition of Windows 8.1 you'll need your Windows 8 product key to activate. To install Windows 8.1 Preview from within Windows 8, follow these steps:
Download the ISO (.iso) file.
Double-tap or double-click the ISO file.
Double-tap or double-click setup.exe and follow the steps

 
From Windows 8.1 Preview FAQ section.
Acc to FAQ I should install Via store to keep my files.

I use Skype you can get from Skype.com; it's not Skype Preview that comes with Windows 10. That's junk, in my not so humble opinion.

I attempted to upgrade Skype from version 7.25.0.103, but got so far and was told "The specified account already exists." Next, I was told the upgrade failed. I tried at least four times, rebooted system, etc., but nothing worked.






I had nothing to lose, so I then uninstalled Skype and reinstalled it. Once that was done, I looked and was up to version 7.25.0.104, but I knew 7.25.0.106 was out there waiting for me. So, I checked for updates, was told there were updates to be had, so, with a very reluctant mouse, I clicked and . . .

Whew, I am now up to version 7.25.0.106!

Has this happened to anyone else, or is it something I alone have experienced?

"The installed product does not match the installation source(s). Until a matching source is provided or the installed product and source are synchronized, this action can not be performed."

Today Skype opened itself and updated itself whilst I was AFK.

I have it set to manual update only, plus at the time Skype wasn't even running.

Additionally the SkypeUpdate service in Task Manager is also stopped.

This also happened in my partner's Win 7 machine, and looking at the Skype forum, to several other people too.

My question is how did it manage to do this and how can I prevent it happening again in the future?

I noticed upon boot up put up a Windows update notice so I went to the store and only saw some app updates Went to the Update site and saw the security update Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows Preview for x -based Systems KB Download size MB You may need to # Preview 80073712 security Failure 8.1 Update restart your computer for this update to take effect Update type Important A security issue has been identified in a Microsoft software product that could affect your system You can help protect your system by installing this update 8.1 Preview security Update Failure # 80073712 from Microsoft For a complete listing of the issues that are included in this update see the associated Microsoft Knowledge Base article After you install this update you may have to restart your system More information MS - Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer September Help and Support Microsoft Support It downloads and installs to about the mark and fails Googling the code brings up old Vista threads Anyone else get this to work

A:8.1 Preview security Update Failure # 80073712

So I thought I had the answer when I found this page: Error Code 0x80073712 occurs in Windows Update or Microsoft Update
Running DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth finished with no problem. But running DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth fails as you can see in the screen shot above.

The log file shows several of these Temp file failures:

I'm wondering should I just delete and rebuild the Temp file?

Update: Cleaning out the Temp file did not help.

Will it looks like no one has a clue. I guess it doesn't really matter since the full version is out in 3 weeks and I will dump the preview.

Dear Sirs,
all my attempts have proved futile and you are my last hope.

Situation:
I have replaced the icons for 3 of my programs, browser, mail client & mp3 player with custom icons from the web (16x16 ico, 32x32 ico, 48x48 ico, 256x256 png). They show up correctly in the taskbar itself (small and large) BUT the preview windows title bar icon remains the original (See attachments).

Attempted solutions:
Clearing Icon Cache, Prefetch, MUICache, tried all icon color depths, removing Icon completely, re-installing programs

The aesthetic discrepancy is driving me
I believe that windows has somewhere stored a type of "favicon" upon 1st launch of the programs and I can't find it.

If anyone can help me thank you very much, I hope I simply overlooked something really straightforward

Greets,
Maxwax

I was running fast ring builds for windows 10 on another partition, I had been updating this since the original technical preview. I was having some performance problems a couple months ago, so I decided to finally update my old windows 8.1 install to 10, eventually doing a fresh install of it and have left insider previews turned off. With build 14316 being announced, I reactivated insider previews, but windows update is not pulling any builds on either the slow or fast ring. I did notice that both installs are showing on my account when I signed on a few weeks back. Is the second install keeping this install from getting insider builds, and how would I go about fixing it?

Update to Skype 6.6. the Webcam disappeared. not visible in device Manager. multiple Downloads of web cam Drivers don't execute. checked bios. Rebooted machine multiple times.

What to do to install web cam Software again?

A:Satellite R630-14J - after Skype update web cam has disappeared

Hi

To be honest I cannot understand why webcam device disappears from device manager list after skype update.
I mean even if there would be a software problem (compatibility issues), the webcam should be listed in device manager even as an unknown device.

However, by default, certain devices are not shown in the list. To include hidden devices in Device Manager display, click View and select Show Hidden Devices.

However, I assume you are using Win 7 system.

> multiple downloads of webcam drivers don't execute
On Toshiba EU driver page you can find the webcam software.
Maybe new Skype version damage something in registry. Would recommend uninstalling the Skype firstly. Download and install the repair tool like CCleaner. Clean registry and reboot the notebook. Now try to install the webcam software once again. Reboot the unit and check if you can use the webcam using installed webcam too.

Hey guys all of a sudden Windows Technical Preview is coming up in Windows Update and everytime I try and hide it, it keeps coming back up when I check for updates I don't want to install this because I am nervous about messing up my computer and if I don't like it I know I have recovery media now to get my computer to "out-of-the-box" state, but when I re-connect to one of my networks I will have lots of hassles getting it to work and connect how can I stop the Windows Technical Preview from coming up and keep it hidden

Delete the latest installed Windows Update (KB299xxxxx??) - that should stop it. Note that doing so will delete your Update History, and reset the SoftwareDistribution folder

A:First major update to Windows 10 Preview, delivered through Windows Update

And they call this "slow" type updates? I'd not want to think what they'd be if these were on the fast track. 
 
One thing to keep in mind, that is if one has the chance, if there's installed security in the place of Windows Defender, remove it before upgrades. Otherwise, and was the case with me, it wouldn't work anymore, wouldn't repair, uninstall, nor could I enable Windows Defender until it could be fixed (I have an image, but am not going to bother). 
 
These early Technical Previews are the equivalent of Developer Previews of Windows 8 three years ago, which I knew existed, but never ran. I started on the Consumer Previews, and won't participate in the program anymore until these are available, hopefully by mid to late February. 
 
Windows has a tool called Disk2vhd, this may be a good time to install VirtualBox & test any installed Technical Previews out further, while they're still in running condition. Remember for this tool to create VirtualBox bootable VM's, the vdhx box must be unchecked, it can only use vhd files to make bootable VM's. Only certain virtual software can use the vdhx files.

We've written before about Windows 10's new updating policy, and today we're seeing the real-world result for the first time. The Windows 10 Technical Preview, build 9849, is being updated to build 9860. That update will roll out automatically to members of the Windows Insider program, and it will be delivered through Windows Update.

The operating system upgrade is a little more heavyweight than a regular hotfix; systems will need to reboot to finish installation, and Microsoft says that the reboot will take longer than normal.

The major feature of the new build is that it contains the first iteration of Windows 10's notification center. At the moment, it's a simple collection of historic notifications. Microsoft says that future builds will add more capabilities to the notification center, such as the ability to take actions in response to notifications.

My question is well this windows 10 update delete or change my Recovery partition to win10. if i dont like it id like to use the recovery partition to go back to win7. also does Microsoft know what software or what u do on win 10 tech preview.

im installing this on my pc i use everyday i know they say not to but its time for a reinstall of win7 and i thought id try win10

A:Windows 10 Technical Preview Update thru Win7's windows update

Don`t do it on your Windows 7 machine. Uninstall the update and hide it, if that`s what you mean.

Installing 10 to your W7 partition should have no affect on your recovery partition, but I wouldn`t chance it, no way.

Install Windows 10 on a separate drive, first unplugging the W7 drive, they do not dual boot well together.

Install 10 in a VM if you really want to look at it, it is nothing special and not worth the effort.

I have had issues since last patch Tuesday:
When I try to start Skype nothing seems to happen (no window opens).
Also IE does not want to connect to anything.
If I go to the options IE10 all except file and safety are greyed out.

I have tried resetting through the internet options in the control panel, check no proxies are set.
I have run 2 different "iefix " programs, looked in the event viewer (not sure what to look for, nothing obvious visible...)

I have uninstalled Skype and subsequently re-installed it.

My Firefox and Chrome are fine. I have done a system restore a few times which solves the problem, but as soon as updates are installed the same happens again.

I run W7 64 pro.

totally at a loss now, have spent 2 days trying to find what the cause is.

Would really appreciate if someone has any ideas!

many thanks, Jaap

I don't use Skype. I uninstalled it. Windows Update keeps sending updates and marking them as 'important.' If I run the update I find I need to uninstall the program again.

I'd like reassurance that I can safely ignore these updates.

It makes sense to me, but software has gotten complex enough that I want to be sure that this update only updates Skype for Windows and that failure to implement it does not leave a gaping hole in Windows 7.

Did a Windows Live Essentials update, after which, my email contacts were all gone.

I did system restore, exported the old addys to a folder.
After closing Windows Live Mail, I could not reopen without re-doing the update install. So, I did.

When I went to the CONTACTS tab (bottom left) it never really opens.
It clears the emails or calendar, from the main window but leaves the same 'ribbon'
(or task bar or whatever at the top). It doesn't show the options that should be there for 'contacts' (no import/export/etc).

If it matters, I do not sign in to Windows Live Mail. When I open it, there's always a a popup that says I've tried to sign-in too many times with the wrong info.
I hit cancel, the popup goes bye-bye and I can use mail. Until now. Ugh!

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

A:Contacts gone after Windows Live Essentials update

If you don't use Hotmail as your main mail account, I suggest getting one, store all your contacts on it via its website, then use it to sign-in to WLM. Next, add the email accounts you do use then delete the Hotmail account you signed-in with.

I loaded IE11 preview a few days ago and it has worked flawlessly. Today I ran Windows Update and after this IE11 would not open - I just got an error message saying IE could not operate. It took a number of closing of the error dialogue box to get the error boxes tto stop appearing. I have gone back to IE10 and have no problems again. I tried reinstalling 11 and it worked fine again - until I ran Windows Update again same problem happened. I am sure there is some conflict with an update or more - KB2879017 looks a likely culprit.

Grateful for any advice on how to get IE11 to co-exist with Windows Update. Thanks.

Windows retrieved an update recently to update the firmware on the edge 2 laptops. Mine has been doing this same exact thing, however, each time at restart my battery has been below "the threshold" of 25 or 30% battery, I forget which. Next time you get a full charge, restart the computer instead of shutting it down, and hopefully should do the trick.
