From this site I looked at the package specs for Skype and it says you can run it like this:


I ran this exact command and once complete it still pops up the "welcome to skype" window where it prompts you for a Skype Name & Password. It also did 'Not' put anything in the RUN or RUNONCE reg keys.

We need to deploy this to about 2,000 machines and since it does prompt you how do you handle this? if you push this installer with SCCM and it runs in the system context how do you set it up for all users? do you have to drop something into the Run Reg key or do you use the Active Setup Reg key?

i highly recommend downloading Skype 5.9 as an MSI and running it in SCCM with this command msiexec.exe /q ALLUSERS=2 /m MSIBJBKS /i "SkypeSetup.msi" /TRANSFORMS=:RemoveStartup.mst

This way it doesn`t install other useless feature that are not required in a business environement.

The .msi of Skype v6.11 was super easy to push out with my K1000:

1.  Download the MSI installer from Skype's website:  http://www.skype.com/en/business/downloading/

2.  For distribution via K1000:

    Installation command:  Use default
    Run Parameters:  /qn /i
    Delete Downloaded files - checked 

That's it!  While researching, I also found the following business guide.  While a couple of years old, it may have some useful information:  http://download.skype.com/share/business/guides/skype-it-administrators-guide.pdf
