When we talk about installing Skype for Business, we could just launch the installer and let it go, but this will make you loose precious time. Particularly if you are an expensive consultant, companies will be happy to pay less for the installation. You will have to reboot several times during installation if you don’t install these prerequisites.

Here are a few prerequisites needed for each Skype for business server installation:
