    [SOLVED] Virtual Box and Skype.

    This is probably best posted with V.Box or Skype - but will have a go anyway !. I have V.Box installed on my Ubuntu 8.10. I am running Windows X.P on V.box. The issue is with Skype. I can download and installo but when I try to run / open Skype I get the error message - SORRY SKYPE HAS TO CLOSE. and that's it - it will not run. Anyone any ideas on this ?

    I get the same problem with the latest version of Skype so I reverted to using Skype 3.8.0.115 which works okay for me.

    That's basically it. For whatever reason new versions of Skype don't work in VB. Check out oldapps.com for older versions. The older ones work.

    I see it has already been raised with VirtualBox (see ticket here).

    Done as you suggested - now it all works fine.
