Where are skype program files on windows 7?

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe” /secondary doesn't work on my new laptop (windows 7 64-bit) to allow me to open 2 accounts at a time.

 

It did on earlier computers, but on this one I get an error message that "C:\program " can't be found.  Are the Skype program files saved somewhere else on this system?

 

Search doesn't turn up anything.  Thanks.

I'm not a "new member" - I've been happily using skype for some 7 years - it's the laptop and operating system that are new.

In Skype go to Skype menu and select Sign Out. Next Sign in with the other account.
