    Never tried.

    It just depends on what version of Windows your running on the VPS and if Skype supports that version.

    There is no reason it should not work...unless as stated an unsupported Windows O/S version.

    As my experience then it is possible to install Skype on a Windows VPS with the condition is you need to install a Windows version on it.

    For Linux VPS, it is impossible to install Skype on a desktop environment with Linux because Skype only is supported on Windows version and you need to choose Skype for Linux, but I have not succeeded when installed it on a Linux VPS.
