Why does Skype display a message about an error code?

Messages containing error code numbers were displayed in earlier versions of Skype when technical problems were encountered.

These error code messages have been removed in more recent versions of Skype. If you encounter an error code message, the easiest way to resolve the problem is to upgrade to the latest version of Skype.
