To allow a program to use the ActiveX Skype interface you have to enable it in Skype:
1. Skype Options
3. Manage others programs' access to Skype
4. Select your program (LabVIEW.exe) and click change if the text 'Not allowed to use Skype' is shown
After that you can talk to Skype, otherwise you will get a question inside Skype that asks you to allow or deny your application.
