You say above that libvirt "works", but I want you to try it in a
controlled environment.  First off, try some simple virsh commands:

  virsh list
  virsh -c ... list

(with various connection strings).

Second, set the LIBVIRT_DEBUG environment variable to 1 (I have no
idea how you do that in Windows).  Then repeat the above commands.

Thirdly, try (with LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1):

  virt-viewer -v -c ... host

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
