Ever since updating to Windows 8, Skype is no longer connecting. I've tried readding the account. It also won't connect on any other computer running Windows 8. It will still connect on Windows 7 though.

    Just replace this Skypekit.exe in "TrilianDir/Plugins" with the one I uploaded here, this works for me in Windows 8.1 and Server 2012.
    But this is not solution, the Trillian guys should do something about it, this bug is annoying.

    Unfortunately Skype support in Trillian is coming to a close with the deprecation of SkypeKit. Skype has decided to stop supporting the tools that they use to provide for third party applications like Trillian to connect to their service. If you are interested in learning more about it, here is the blog post:

    Some users may still be able to connect temporarily, but ultimately connectivity will cease over time.
