Actually the "new" Skype version no longer provides an API. So it is not possible for add-on applications like Pamela to communicate with the Skype network anymore.

The only way to get addons to work is to install the Skype Desktop version (current version 7.40). You can download it from here: https://get.skype.com/go/getskype-full

Make sure you uninstall the newer Skype version.

Now you should be able to use all your Skype addon apps like Pamela again.

Note that Microsoft has decided to phase out the Skype API on Windows so that your addon apps will stop working eventually.

Till now Microsoft have officially stated they will still support call recording in the Skype API (see https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12395/how-can-i-record-my-skype-calls) but it seems that things are starting to break down......

Best,
