Just tried in on a new Win 7 64 bit install and it worked for me.

The HW Virtual Serial port control panel tool connects to it's service over the network. Maybe try it with your firewall off? Also check the advanced tab is set to localhost? Have you tried turning logging on to see what that logs?

There is other virtual serial port software out there. This is was simply the easiest to use as far as I could see.
