I got the "the group or resources is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation" error. This was fixed by going to the device manager and updating the drivers for my wifi adapters.

Could not be started error

Negative Comment by ertpresso
about Virtual Router Dec 2012

I get "could not be started" error when I click connect button, while using Windows 8 Pro.

Google tells me that a lot people experienced this with Windows 7 too. I hope its developer fix this soon.
