I read several posts or articles which deal with this but all give a solution for linux guest. For example :

http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/9p_virtio

http://troglobit.com/blog/2013/07/05/file-system-pass-through-in-kvm-slash-qemu-slash-libvirt/

I also heard about using a samba server or something like that. Does anybody know precisely how to set up a working solution ?

I just succeed in setting up a samba network between the windows XP guest and the host. I followed the following tip :

I just have to add a comment about the samba password. When you try to access to the directory you want to share, samba ask you for a password. This password is not your ubuntu password associated to your login. You have to use the command smbpasswd in order to set a password specific to samba.
