How to make Skype a PortableApp

Create the following directories beneath your PortableApps directory

SkypePortable
SkypePortable\Skype
SkypePortable\Skype\Data

Obtain the Skype.exe from an existing installation on any PC. Copy the Skype .exe to the following directory.

SkypePortable\Skype

Donwload and Install AutoIT http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/

Create a Script, using the AutoIT editor, with the following line

Run(".\PortableApps\SkypePortable\Skype\skype.exe /datapath:.\PortableApps\SkypePortable\Skype\Data /removable")

Compile the Script, using the AutoIT compiler, as follows

\SkypePortable\SkypePortable.exe

Restart Portable Apps and you'll have a working, SkypePortable.

I did not bother to try to extract the Skype icon from the Executable. If you do, then you can embed the Skype icon in SkypePortable.exe

Enjoy.

Thanks

But if you search, things like this and using a batch file have been mentioned like a bazillion times. Blum
