Redownload Skype Business with this link

http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-msi

 

Run the installer.

 

When the error occurs do not close the Warning message / window.

 

go to Skype folder inside program files and go to phone folder and then Copy Skype.exe to desktop.

 

Now Close the error message.

 

Copy/Move the Skype.exe file from your desktop to the phone folder. Then right click on Skype.exe and select send to Desktop (Create shortcut)


Now try running skype using this new shortcut.

 

Alternatively, Download MSI Extractor

Extract Skype Business Installer (SkypeSetup.MSI) with MSI Extractor.

 

Run Skype.exe.
