[libvirt-users] Qemu-ga on Windows 10

I have a windows 10 guest with qemu-ga-x64.msi installed from the fedora virtio iso.

qemu-ga version is 0.12.1

host qemu version is 2.1.0 (I know its older but in this version the active block commit works perfectly...)

libvirt version 1.2.12

I have these lines in my xml:

<channel type='unix'>
      <source mode='bind' path='/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/channel/target/PCVIRTmbe.org.qemu.guest_agent.0'/>
      <target type='virtio' name='org.qemu.guest_agent.0' state='disconnected'/>
      <alias name='channel0'/>
      <address type='virtio-serial' controller='0' bus='0' port='1'/>

/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/channel/target/PCVIRTmbe.org.qemu.guest_agent.0 exists on the host and the rights seems to be all right.

On the guest, the folder C:\ProgramData\qemu-ga exists

Still, I can't start the qemu-ga service. I get this error:

Can't start QEMU GuestAgent-service on the local computer

Error 1053: The service didn't answer correctly on the start command

(or something like this, the error message in in Dutch)

If I start the qemu-ga from the cmd I get this error:

error opening path

error opening channel

failed to create guest agent channel

failed to initialize guest agent channel

Does anybody got an idea how to resolve this problem?

Thanks in advance.
