Usually Windows Server 2008 is pretty hardened, meaning ICMP is blocked, as well as most other services.
If you go to your Firewall, and open up ICMP (incoming echo request), then you should be able to ping the VM from the host.

Do you have IPv6 enabled? Try disabling and test ping again.

I would open up both inbound and outbound ICMPv4 echo requests.
