Recently we noticed a slight hurdle when using the Mikogo Skype Extra with Skype 4 Beta. Some people have received a message, “This plugin is not allowed”, when using Skype 4. Unfortunately there appears to be an issue when downloading the Mikogo Extra directly to the Skype 4 Beta Extras Manager.
If you have experienced the above message preventing the Mikogo Skype Extra, you will be happy to know that there is a solution.
For example if you have Skype 3.8 (for example version 126.96.36.199), downloaded the Mikogo Extra and then upgraded to a Skype 4 Beta, you will have the Extra in your Extras Manager, and it will work perfectly.
However if you have Skype 3.8 without the Mikogo Extra, then upgrade to Skype 4 beta, and later get the Mikogo Extra, you may receive the message: “This plugin is not allowed”.
In short, the Mikogo Skype Extra does in fact work normally via Skype 4 Beta. The solution can be found by upgrading from an official version of Skype 3.8 to Skype 4 Beta.
Solution – please follow these steps:
1. Install Skype 3.8 (for example, 188.8.131.52)
2. Download the Mikogo Skype Extra
3. Then upgrade from Skype 3.8 to Skype 4 Beta.
You will then be able to use the Mikogo Extra from the Beta version of Skype 4.
Once you have upgraded from Skype 3.8, already with the Mikogo Extra, to Skype 4 Beta, you can start meetings and send invitations to your Skype contacts.
