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
