Automatically fix the missing api-ms-*.dll error

Since not all users can fix the error The api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer, I wrote a small script that automatically fixes the error: it downloads the archive and unpacks all the necessary libraries into the Skype installation folder.


Just download and launch the script autofix_api_ms_win.vbs

I tested this script on Windows XP and Windows 7 and everything works properly. But if you encounter any troubles, please let me know.
