    It appear in application list of Growl if I run it as administrator, but in this case it cannot communicate with Skype.

    Skype version is
    Growl for windows 2.0.4
    Windows 7 64bits

    Could you help me?

    • try running everything as administrator.

      • Is it the only solution? I hope to run it as normal since if I run Skype as administrator, all other skype plug-ins should be run as admin as well.

      • probably not, but i find it allot easier than banging my head against windows for hours.

      • do you have any idea or hint? any suspicious things? cuz I alread tried to check firewall setting, diff version of growl for hours as you mentioned, my brain is not working any more. I am curious what is used for actual communication between growl and growl4skype.
        Anyway, thanks for your reply.

      • pretty sure it all runs through a internal tcp connection.

  4. Just a heads up there is a new version at
