The SkypeAPI is a cross-platform software development library that provides developers access to Skype’s API. The library allows programs to integrate Skype into their own software, or vice versa, while also adding a variety of new functionality.
Please check the file from Skydrive for the latest version. Note this example using VB Script :
Set oWeb = CreateObject(“Microsoft.XMLDOM”)
oWeb.Async = False
Set sSkypeAPI = CreateObject(“skypeAPI.Client”)
Set sSkypeAPI.Client.Credentials(username, password)

Carbohydrate-based purification and enhanced growth of Mycobacterium bovis BCG-based live attenuated vaccines.
Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is an attenuated live vaccine used to protect against tuberculosis. Currently, the most prevalent production strategy is the use of mycobacterial sucrose-mediated growth. The cell membrane phospholipids palmitic, stearic, and oleic acids were prepared as glyceride triethers of fatty acids, (PLX). The PLX were then added as PEG formulations to sucrose-based media, yielding a purification profile for tuberculous vaccine manufacturing that increases specific fermentation product and yields final product more rapidly and efficiently than traditional methods. The addition of these purified lipids supported multiple generations of growth in glycose and non-glycose environments, both of which are necessary for the scale-up and industrial production of BCG
libSkypeAPI is a cross-platform easy to use and fast communication library that allows you to develop/build a Skype user interface, or even a Skype SDK, regardless of programming language.
I hope this library will be a good solution to build your Skype user interface, it has the ability to do much more. (also, it’s more stable then Microsoft Skype SDK).
But this is my personal opinion, and I might be wrong.
Another option is the Skype API for HTML5 (Archived copy) that was provided by Skype.
You can find a sample project here.
Update: The library seems not to be active anymore, and a newer option is the HTML5 Web SDK.
In conventional mobile communication system, the mobile station is automatically switched to a base station associated with the cell in which the mobile station is located. Moreover, the mobile station establishes a call by giving a dial signal to the base station. When the mobile station moves from one cell to another cell, the mobile station is automatically switched from the base station associated with the cell in which the mobile station is located to a base station associated with the cell in which the mobile station moves. This is known as a hand-over.
In a conventional mobile communication system, when the mobile station moves from one cell to another cell, the base station associated with the cell in which the mobile station is located and the base station associated with the cell in which the mobile station moves is a repeater. Accordingly, the base stations receive radio signals from the mobile station. The base stations which are receiving the radio signals from the mobile station send the radio signals to a control station (MSC, Mobile Services Switching Center). The mobile station returns to the control station when the radio signal from the mobile station is weak or the mobile station does not receive the radio signals from the base station.
FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram illustrating call control during a hand-over in a conventional mobile communication system.
In the conventional mobile communication system, a mobile station (MS) 100 is connected to a home base station (HBS) 101 of a service provider.
The mobile station 100 and the home base station 101 are connected with a control station (MSC, Mobile Services Switching Center) 102. The control station 102 controls the call control by transferring a call made from the mobile station 100 to the control station 102 to the mobile station 100, and so on.
The mobile station 100 receives a service
Skype API v10.0 Authentication
The Skype API v10.0 authentication supports OAuth login. This authentication method requires that the developers obtain an application key and secret from the Skype Developers Service. See [using OAuth for applications]( for further information about the OAuth application workflow.
libSkypeAPI v10.0 authentication is now deprecated.
This can be used to access any Skype object. It supports both synchronous and asynchronous methods.
Perform a Skype operation in.NET using the Skype API. If you are new to the Skype API, you may want to read about how to get started with it.
The API is typically referred to as the “Skype API”. The Skype API consists of two large frameworks: a C++ library and a C# library.
You need SkypeAPI.dll to use the Skype API.
You need SkypeAPI64.dll to use the Skype API for 64-bit platforms.
The API does not include any functions for managing user accounts, nor the
Skype Object Model.
The Skype API includes many objects that you can use in.NET. The following list gives a brief overview of the Skype API:
The ClientSession object is used to communicate with a Skype account.
The ClientProfile object is used to identify and manage a Skype account.
The ClientNetwork object is used to implement peer-to-peer communications and network clustering.
The ContactListManager object is used to manage the list of contacts. The contact list is the list of contacts a Skype user has created that you can use to communicate with.
The DiagnosticService object is used to communicate with the Skype client’s diagnostic services.
The Installation object is used to manage the installation of Skype.
The IncomingCallHandler object is used to handle incoming calls.
The OutgoingCallHandler object is used to handle outgoing calls.
The ApiChannel object is used to communicate with the Skype API.
The Avatar object is used to manage the Skype client’s contact list.
It is highly recommended to use the latest drivers to get the best performance.
After installation has completed successfully, you will receive a welcome screen of the software.
