Love using aerodrums on my mac, but trying to use it on my wifes laptop and having issues. What is the virtual midi cable you are talking about, and how do I initialize that?

I assume you're trying to use it in MIDI mode.
If so, did you try follow this tutorial on setting up Aerodrums for use with MIDI on a Mac?

There is a tutorial on setting MIDI up on Windows as well:

The virtual MIDI cable is a separate piece of software you will need. There are a few options but we recommend LoopBe1, which is used in the above tutorial.

If you're having trouble getting it working, please let me you know what DAW you're using and what the issue is (e.g. do you get some error message or do you hear any audio?)
