Keep Skype from popping up
skype pops up everytime a new call is made. Is there a way to keep skype from popping up?
Voicent programs, such as Broadcast by Phone Autodialer and Predictive Dialer, invoke Skype through Skype API. However, there is no option in the API that can prevent Skype window from popping up.
There is a workaround. You can use the manual mode to start Skype (Voicent Gateway > Setup > Options > Skype).
1. Switch to another Windows user account, and login
2. Start Skype and Sign in
3. Switch back (not logout) to the original account
4. Restart Voicent gateway by clicking the STOP and START button
5. Restart Voicent BroadcastByPhone
The drawback of this workaround is that you cannot see any message from the Skype Window.
