making skype portable


Ever wished to execute skype from the usb drive. Here’s how you can do that.

  1. Create skype folder on usb drive.
  2. copy skype.exe to that folder.
  3. create subfolder named data
  4. create a cmd file (save it in skype folder) with the content start %~dp0skype.exe /datapath:”%~dp0data” /removable
  5. run the cmd file and enjoy.

I am not sure if skype.exe adds registry on the local machine or not, will try to find that and update.
