okay, im looking into deploying this across our business to laptops and tablets.

So far i can see i need to use skype manager to maintain the business users.  Fine no problems.

Now i'd like to deploy it via GPO (correctly). The latest version 6.14.32.104.
Also be able to use GPO or registry settings to lock down the large file send and any other bit i may find.

But, i don't see any central location for this anywhere.

ANyone help me?

What do you mean with "central location" ? You mean where the files are stored ? Just store it on a shared folder of the domain server.

it could be broken installation. or not complete package. try re-downloading the installation pack and reinstall .

odd.  after setting up sound/video screen it gets to the add picture, which fails to allow me to browse a folder....
this is on custom msi and the manually downloaded msi.

You mean when you try to browse a picture the explorer.exe crashes? If so this might be related to some kind of infection I suppose. I have noticed this happening before with infected machines.

does it happen on a single machine or in more than one?
