How to login multiple Skype accounts

06/16/2016 6455 views
I got the below link for logging in multiple skype accounts at the same time.

But it is not working for "skype for business" as it is pointing to lync.exe only instead of skype.exe.

Could you please help me on this.

What what I've seen the answer is that you can't launch multiple Skype for Business instances.
Essentially Skype for Business is still Lync with a new front end, which is why the executable for SfB is lync.exe and the /secondary switch doesn't work.

You might be able to run different versions of Lync/SfB to separate them (2010 & 2013/SfB) or you could virtualise a copy and run them separately that way.

Skype for consumers (classic skype) is totally different from Skype for Business.

Skype for Business is Lync flashed up and rebranded, so that URL for classic skype wont work.
