I'm running paparazzi in VM-Player 80% of the time with no problem at all... USB is plugged/swapped from windows to linux with nice pictograms, and does not need to install drivers for every USB like in virtualbox. With VirtualTools installed your mouse moves from linux-VM to windows as if it were a normal windows program and the performance is enhanced and even highspeed JTAG works nicely.
Note: VM-Player also supports running linux directly from a partition instead of from a hard-disk file. So my current setup is a dual-boot. When performance or safety is needed I boot linux only. But when in windows I can boot the linux partition in VM and vice versa. A bit of RAM is useful though. Only word of care here: do not boot linux twice when hibernating windows with a running VM-player and then choosing linux on startup... not so good for linux filesystem integrity...

My advice is to completely forget about making Paparazzi work in an other than Linux
I know that this doesn't answer your question but i have tried running Ubuntu in a virtual machine before
and the only thing i got in return was more problems.
Make a Linux partition or if you dont' know how to do it find someone who can
and install Ubuntu.
I think it is possible to install Ubuntu on a usb drive also.
