I always wanted to try my hand out with NSIS scripting and when John released Portable Miranda, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to jump into it with a Portable Skype.
Seeing how John released Portable Miranda (Miranda being quite portable as it is), I thought I'd release Portable Skype (Skype is quite portable as it is as well). So here it is. It features the same format loving format as the application with seperated profile and application directories as well INI customization.
Reasons why you'd use this are the same as the reasons you'd use Portable Miranda:
- Seperated application files and profile data
- Smaller in file size
- Portable out of the box
- INI customization (abilities to disable splash screen, start the application minimized, etc)
Any questions or comments are extremely welcome. There are a few places where the code could be cleaned up, but I'm very confident on how it turned out.
Thanks a lot,
