How to: Execute multiple Skype instances (with .bat file)

Some time back, I had written an article explaining how to run multiple Skype user accounts simultaneously. The original article can still be found here. Years have passed since then, but with Trillian (my favourite IM application) not being able to connect to Skype anymore (Microsoft dropped Skypekit), I had to return to the Skype application.

However, I just can’t bother with creating links and running Skype with the /secondary parameter each time. So, I created this little .bat file that runs two instances of Skype with one go. Unfortunately, I still have to manually close the terminal windows after it executes, but it still beats the alternative.

Grab it if you think it’ll help you.
Note that you will have to rename the files from .ba_ to .bat.
