Has any Doper successfully installed Skype on an Surface (Win-10). Vacationing in Barbados with my nearly new MS-Surface, I tried to install Skype a couple days ago. Everything went well until I gave it my UID and Password. It then began to load my Skype profile and stalled at 40% of the profile loaded. If I exit reload, the signon screen is all grayed out. If I send to Skype for help with signon, it signs on but shows the same 40% profile loaded. No phone book, no phone icon to dial by hand.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the program; same result. Finally, I tried help and spent an hour and a half this morning on live chat with a Skype technical support person. She had me uninstall and reinstall the program. Same result. In the end she just gave up and said I should contact MS because the problem appeared to be with the Surface. I thought I would try TSD first.
