Did you upgrade racoon to a newer version? Pfsense bundles a version of 
racoon that is very old.

Did you answer yes to all the kernel driver install questions? It isn't 
able to create the virtual network adapter. Could you try rebooting the 
windows machine and see if you are still getting this error? I have seen 
problems with creating the initial device but thought these were all 
resolved. Let me know if this problem persists.
