You're well outside the envelope of what we've tried or what we
support.  On Windows we only support client connections through the
remote driver, so you have to disable everything else:

I'm confused actually as to what use libvirt + Xen would be on Windows
-- does Xen Enterprise now have the ability to use Windows as dom0?
