Outlook Add-in for Skype meeting always gets disabled after restarting Outlook 2013

To avoid having the Skype Add-in disable after restarting Outlook, I had to execute the following steps:

  • Start Outlook 2013 as an Administrator (this step is important, otherwise, it will NOT work)
  • File > Options > Add-ins
  • Under Manage: Com Add-Ins and click on Go
  • On COM Add-Ins page. Check Skype meeting Add-in for Microsoft Office 2013
  • Click Remove
  • Press OK
  • Close Outlook
  • Start Outlook 2013 as an Administrator
  • File > Options > Add-ins
  • Under Manage: Com Add-Ins and click on Go
  • Press Add...
  • Browse to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\UCAddin.dll
  • Press OK
  • Close Outlook and start it as a normal user. The add-in is now activated.
