Windows 8/8.1 Skype desktop app issues

Windows 8.1 comes pre-installed with Metro Skype, do not know about you, but I personally hate it, but since you can remove it and install good old desktop version it was not a big deal.

However noticed that once desktop version was installed, it simply did not launched, even after deleting old files from %appdata% of Skype, during launch new files were created, but software would not launch.

In order to fix it, I had only to enable .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) from Windows features and that did the trick.
