New graphics driver causing Skype for Business to get stuck on splash screen -> fixed in 5.1.30

Description

Host system details: Toahiba Tecra 2 Z50-A Debian Linux 64-bit Kernel 4.12.6-1 KDE Plasma version 5.10.5 Using only Intel integrated GPU with Mesa 17.2.0 VirtualBox 5.1.28 + Extension pack 5.1.28

Guest OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit Skype for Business from Office 2016 MSO (16.0.4549.1000) 64-bit 3D acceleration enabled with Direct3D driver version 5.1.28.0

With the latest Direct3D driver installed Skype For Business won't open, it will get stuck on the splash screen. But if I manually revert to driver version 5.1.26.0 in device manager (no other changes), it opens without issue.
