New computer wants me to combine Skype with Micros...

Update:12-10Source: network consolidation

I have both a personal and business account for Skype. I use the business account most. In the process of setting up the business account on my new computer, I was asked for Microsoft account login info. After entering that, it now wants to merge everything so I sign into Skyp with Microsoft login. I don't want to do this. My business account is actually "owned" by my employer and I want to be able to ensure everything is separate. How do I bypass using Microsoft info in Skype?
Thanks for your help!

The only case when Microsoft Account is an absolute requirement is when dealing with the modern (metro) Skype app for Windows 8/8.1.
Desktop version, which can be installed on Windows 8.1 computers does not require Microsoft account.
