Make sure you have VirtualRouterService running (Check in using command from the run -  services.msc)

Make sure you have VirtualRouterService listed in the list, if not found then it is some installation issue.

Once you have found the service, try starting the service and then start the Application again.

Check to see, if everything is working good, this will work for you.

Same problem with the last version v0.9beta :(

The service is installed, running, but got the message "can not manage virtual router. The service is not running".

An idea?

Windows 7 x64, VirtualRouter 1.0. Same problem. Connections to tcp/31337 are allowed.

Same problem.
There is one note in events like:
Error Starting Service
System.BadImageFormatException: Cannot load file or assembly "Interop.NETCONLib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
File name: "Interop.NETCONLib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
in IcsMgr.IcsManager.Init()
in IcsMgr.IcsManager..ctor()
in VirtualRouterHost.VirtualRouterHost..ctor()
in VirtualRouterService.VirtualRouterWindowsService.OnStart(String[] args)

I think that's why...
