Skype for Desktop Installation Switches

Some time ago, I was working to perform a silent installation of Skype for Desktop via a task sequence with Configuration Manager. Skype for Desktop is provided as an executable and the installation switches are pretty hidden for the most part which makes using SCCM to install it difficult.

A post on the Skype Blog at http://community.skype.com/t5/Windows-archive/Unattended-install/td-p/184628 details all of the installation switches that we can use to help with installing the client in a managed environment where we don’t want the user to be prompted to interact with the installer or we want to configure certain options such as to disable one of the browser plugins for example.

I hope this helps someone out there trying to deploy Skype for Desktop.
