Skype Transform / Deploying Skype

First things first, grab the Skype business version from the Skype business site. This has no adverts and is an MSI file for simple deployment.

You’ll probably want my Skype Transform which will remove the desktop shortcut and prevent Skype from auto starting with windows.

You can now deploy Skype in your prefered way (Group Policy, SMS, Microsoft Deployment etc). If you’re using Microsoft Deployment, you can use the following command:

msiexec /i SkypeSetup.msi /quiet TRANSFORMS="NoDesktopShortcutNoAutorun.mst"
