I am new to this forum and was wondering if a portable app for Skype will be forthcoming? I note that there is one on the U3 site.

Hi and welcome to

Hi and welcome to
Please read this" === basically, you can't, due to legal issues.

I'm pretty sure there are instructions on how to make it portable, since doing it and distributing it is illegal, but I'm not sure on that

Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.

wouldn't bother

I wouldn't bother with a launcher/portable here, it won't happen; mostly cause skype.
Frankly I don't use launchers anyways just the rest of the code and directories anyways, they've been known to crap out on me. I CAN tell you, you can simply copy the exe file onto a directory... OR do what I do and make a svf file that launches it from a self-extract file

Ready to use package

You can find a ready to use package of Skype Portable 4.0 for PortableApps on my website. It is a modified version that gives You a launcher entry with icon in the PortableApps Menu.

Hi, just search this forum, there are some old posts about how to make your own Portable Skype (it's quite easy).


If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

Good if you have permission; just before you repost the link though, can you show some sort of proof? This is just to make sure we don't fall foul of anyone.
