Skype portable offline installation

Hi!

Today I tried to install Skype Portable without active internet connection, which seems not to work.
I used the same technique like with other Portableapps online installers by placing the corresponding Skype installer (.msi-File) in the same directory like the .paf.exe, but it seems that the portable installer does not recognize the file and tries to download it again, which of course fails (SendRequest error).
I already checked the installer file, but name, size and checksum seem to be correct.

Maybe someone has an idea if there is a way get the installer work in "offline mode".

I think you need to rename the .msi

I've left myself a note in my downloads folder about this so I might be able to help Smile

Try renaming the msi installer to

SkypeSetupFull.exe

Works

Thanks. That worked.

I already thought about renaming the file when I saw the "DownloadFilename=SkypeSetupFull.exe" parameter in the installer.ini file but didn't try it. Wink
