with an update of skype to version 6.1 skype seems to be default telephony application at all. our tapi-software to call contacts directly from outlook does not work anymore, because on click to call contact skype comes up.
this is not what i want. i urgent need to call contacts with my old software and not with skype. what can i do?
You can uninstall Skype toolbar for Outlook from the Control Panel.
Uninstall Skype is no solution. Skype Toolbar was not installed.
But i found an article which describes a registry-setting that allows override of tapisettings.
This was the solution.
Can you share if you did more than create the TAPIOVERRIDE registry entry?
I already had the the TAPIOVERRIDE registry entry before installing Skype 6.1... I was happily dialing from outlook out my ShoreTel VOIP phone. After installing Skype 6.1 Skype somehow became the default TAPI Dialer. I uninstalled Skype since I cannot find any way to specify which TAPI provider I want Outlook to use.
I agree with you. Uninstalling is not a solution. Does anyone have any other ideas to allow me have Skype installed and still dial out my VOIP phone from outlook?
When I reinstalled Skype, I UNchecked Skype’s Click to Call option. I am now able to have my Skype and dial out my VOIP phone with Outlook.
