Skype crashes on Windows 7 VM

Hi everyone, I am attempting to run Skype in a Virtual Box VM because of a large skype chat i am in. Basically, this large skype chat (around 50 members) has a call once in a while, and usually the host is afk. This doesn't bother the windows skype, but it does bother the Linux skype... I feel kinda left out (and the linux version is bound to never update). I am wondering if skype has some sort of VM detection that prevents it from running. Does such detection exist? or is there way to fix it?
