AutoIt Script to automate Skype 8 Desktop Application login.

Latest Skype 8 has changed internally a lot from automation point of view;

  • Contacts no more stored in SQLite c:\Users\WIN_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Skype\SKYPE_USERNAME\main.db
  • Instead of _IEAttach(), we need to use IUIAutomation MS framework
  • Skype binary is now placed under PROGRAMFILES\Microsoft\Skype for Desktop\Skype.exe

Compile & Interactions

This package will be compiled under AutoIt and will do following;

  • Open Skype (if not already running)
  • Click either "Use another account" or "Sign in with Microsoft"
  • Write Username & hit Enter key
  • Write Password & hit Enter key

Details can be found here

You can’t perform that action at this time.
