RE: Skypmate for Skype 6.0
I hate to dig up an old thread but the version of SkypeMate was last semi-functional in Skype 6.21. Even in this "newly" recompiled/repackaged version:

1. Multiple Debug assertion failures occur on initial startup and close of the SkypeMate software pointing to programming logic errors (null and iterator range issues). This basically destroys the ability to use SkypeMate unless someone can click on "ignore" when failures occur every time. Luckily initial/closing assertion failures don't appear to replicate once ignored unless of course the computer is shutdown/rebooted.

2. Caller ID is nonfunctional as all calls come in displaying no ID regardless of Caller ID setting.

3. I don't believe automatic startup options exist as in previous releases. It isn't really that big a bother when that can be manually resolved with a shortcut or registry key value.

As far as I can recall SkypeMate beta last fully functioned correctly with Skype 6.13 (Dec 2013). Unfortunately previous releases of Skype have been retired and 6.14 is the last release that doesn't require a forced update....at this time.

It would be great to get a version of SkypeMate that fully functions with Skype 6.21 or better yet functions with the latest version of Skype which is currently 7.1 (which has a functional Desktop API minus the chat elements that SkypeMate does not require to function). I currently own several B2K boxes and the functionality that is generally lost even with a version of SkypeMate that is semi-functional is the ability to capture phone key presses and send them to the dial pad resulting in the phone keypad being useless which is what occurs in Skype 7.1 along with the already listed failures.

My test and deployed platforms are Windows 7 32 and 64-bit systems though I have no doubt I can recreate the same errors in older operating systems.
