Thank you for your prompt responses. Sorry for delay replying.

Win7 x64 Guest is configured with Virtio-serial channel by specifying "-device virtio-serial" at Qemu options.

QXL driver v8.0 is installed into Guest.

Guest allowed me to install vdservice but vdservice could not be started.
Attaching vdagent and vdservice logs from Win7 x64 guest.

Please let me know where I have missed for setting up clipboard sharing.

Appreciated your help in advance.

Assuming you have the Win7 guest with virtio-serial & qxl drivers 
installed correctly,
as well as vdagent/vdservice installed & running,
-please send the agent logs \windows\temp\vdagent.log 
-and your client log ~/.spicec/spicec.log
