    I have the exact problem as LZH
    I tried your method
    the response I got is this

    Get-Service : Cannot find any service with service name ‘IpOverUsbSvc’.
    At line:1 char:12
    + get-service <<<< IpOverUsbSvc
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (IpOverUsbSvc:String) [Get-Service], ServiceCommandException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NoServiceFoundForGivenName,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetServiceCommand

    In my services option there is no Windows Phone IpOverUsbSvc option. But it appears when I try to run ipoverusb.msi file, I can start it at that point only but it immidietly stops saying no application to use this service. And Installation fails in between. As soon as installation closes, the Windows Phone IpOverUsbSvc option disappears from Services.

      pardon me for replying in english. I hope that I understood your problem.
      Did you manage to find the service in Services.smc? The above solution will only works if the service exist.

        yes, i got the same error, u dont hav sufficient privelege to install it seems!!!!! dunno wat to do,account is admin and not std user. any help guys! or does ipverusb insall in win 7 or not?


        • LZH says:

          It will install for Windows 7.
          You would have to right click and select “Run as Administrator” if it said that you do not have sufficient privilege. This is a must even though you are using an admin account.
