Silent Install Skype.

Recommended Posts

Hey,

What is the easiest way to silently install Skype?

I found this:

msiexec /i SkypeSetup.msi INSTALLLEVEL=1 STARTSKYPE=FALSE ALLUSERS=1 TRANSFORMS=:RemoveStartup.mst TRANSFORMS=:RemoveDesktopShortcut.mst /qr

But that dont work with cmdlines.. And i want to install Skype from cmdlines (with HJW's InstallTips).

I got Skype.MSI of newest version. (from temporary folder in docsandsettings).

When i put skype.msi, InstallTips.exe and InstallTips.ini in one directory and add this:

msiexec /i Skype.msi INSTALLLEVEL=1 STARTSKYPE=FALSE ALLUSERS=1 TRANSFORMS=:RemoveStartup.mst TRANSFORMS=:RemoveDesktopShortcut.mst /qr

And then i run it, then i get this warning:

From what direction should i run the command?

Well. I've thought to post in a pre-posted topic instead of posting a new topic.

Please how can extract the SkypeSetup.msi file from the package I've downloaded? so I can use SkypeSetup.msi directly.

You can't extract it. After starting the small setup.exe, it will download the Skype.msi to your Documents and Settings/User Name; when it finishes downloading (watch the progress bar during download), go to this folder and simply copy-paste Skype.msi to another folder.

If you want, you can get a switchless installer of the latest version (I keep it updated) at the links in my signature.

Hello,

I'm using msi method to silent install skype and regedit to disable autoupdates:

start /wait msiexec /i "%~dp0%SkypeSetup.msi%" /qn

And disable update with regedit:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Skype\Phone]

"DisableVersionCheck"=dword:00000001

You can implement the regedit command on first script. 

Best regards
