If this article is useful for you, please, consider to retribute. Thanks

Hi folks. Today I was trying to install Skype and I got the error 2378, but I got to solve it. I decided to share with you the solution just in case somebody else is facing the same issue. So, if you’re trying to install the Skype on your Windows 7 or Windows Vista (32 or 64 bits) and isn’t getting to complete the install due the error 2378, even trying to install as administrator, try the solution below.

For those using 32 bits version of Windows 7 or Windows Vista use this solution:
– Click on Start menu / All Programs / Accessories;
– Now right click on “Command Prompt” icon and click on “Run as administrator”;
– After opening the prompt command window, type what is between brackets. Don’t type the brackets:
[reg delete “HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}” /f]
and hit Enter;
– Now type without the brackets: [cd %windir%\system32] and hit Enter;
– Type without the brackets: [regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll] and hit Enter;
– Now you may see a message: “DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.” or something similar;
– Click on [OK] button.

For those using 64 bits version of Windows 7 or Windows Vista use this solution:
– Click on Start menu / All Programs / Accessories;
– Now right click on “Command Prompt” icon and click on “Run as administrator”;
– After opening the prompt command window, type what is between brackets. Don’t type the brackets:
[reg delete “HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}” /f]
and hit Enter;
– Now type without the brackets: [cd %windir%\syswow64] and hit Enter;
– Type without the brackets: [regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll] and hit Enter;
– Now you may see a message: “DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.” or something similar;
– Click on [OK] button.

Now by using the command [msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt] the installer will start perfectly and will run all the way with no problems. If this command doesn’t run the installer, run the files SkypeSetup.exe and it will install fully your Skype with no 2378 errors.

Good luck!
