We update Skype 8 without administrator
Since the release of Skype's eighth version, many have encountered the problem of updating if the end user does not have rights to install applications on the system. It is updated quite often and naturally requires ordinary users to enter Administrator data through UAC.
Search on the Internet leads to not very convenient for the administrator ways:
Raising user rights to the Administrator? Not an option, this in most cases leads to the fact that from solving one problem with Skype you can make yourself many other problems due to the illiteracy of the ordinary user
(and their most illiterate, this is statistics) !!
Using the built-in Windows command 'runas' does not quite fit. When you use it, you still need a password, and when using the /savecred key, you make a huge hole in the security of your system!
You can use third-party software, something like AdmiLink Alexei Kuryakin, or ExecAs. As an option, it is not very convenient to distribute additional software if you have a large number of workstations on the network!
Disable updating Skype. Microsoft also knows that it voluntarily forces you to use the latest versions of the software and it is a matter of time how long the program of the irrelevant version will work!
Microsoft does not recommend the use of a home version of Skype in a corporate environment and cute offers to upgrade to a paid version of Skype for Business!
The method is relevant for Windows Vista /? in Windows 10 Skype software is a universal APPX-application, for updating which Administrator rights are not required.
