making skype portable

To make skype run on a usb flash drive or some other portable device follow the following:
  • First...Download the NEWEST version of Skype (Older versions won't work) and install it on any computer as normal.
  • Find the Skype.exe from where it was installed.
    (Usually C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe )
  • Copy the Skype.exe file to any directory on your USB Drive
  • In that new directory create a directory called "data"
  • Now create a file (with notepad) called "skype.bat"
  • Edit the "skype.bat" file and place the following line there:
    skype.exe /datapath:"Data" /removable
