Windows 7: Can no longer use Skype on my desktop win 7 ultimate 64bit w/sp1

Can no longer use Skype on my desktop win 7 ultimate 64bit w/sp1

Has anyone had this issue? I live outside USA in Brazil and always have used Skype for international calls to USA. Last week, I discovered that I can no longer use Skype on win 7 desktop. Is it due to Microsoft non support or do I have another issue? I also have a windows phone using 8.1. Same thing. I upgraded to win 10 on the phone and still no Skype.

What does it means exactly "Can no longer use Skype"? Does it gives some error? Fails to install? Be specific on what you're seeing.
