Error :

         IpOverUsbSvc service missing in windows10

Scenario :

  • When I wanted to deploy my windows phone app to a phone - since that was not working and after some research & analysis I found out that the "Windows Phone IP over USB transport service" (IpOverUsbSvc) needs to be started in the phone.
  • The major problem is that : “There is no such a service, when I check the services on my PC”. (I checked for "Windows Phone IP over USB" and also for "IpOverUsbSvc")
  • Previously, this was no such problem in the last Windows 10 Build and was working perfectly under Windows 8.1 but at the moment when we cannot deploy apps to our phones for testing...it is quite bad even for the Windows Phone Developers.

Fix1 :

  • We have the fix for this USB issue.
  • We need to check out the weather the USB related stuffs has been installed and configured in our machine or not. 
  • Because, when we open a powershell prompt and type "Get-Service -Name *USB*" 

  • Refer this following URL in order to Register for enabling the USB related service

  • Here below we have shown you the content in the file along with its screenshot :
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"DisplayName"="Windows Phone IP over USB Transport (IpOverUsbSvc)"
"Description"="Enables communication between Windows Phone SDK and Windows Phone device. If the service is stopped, application deployment and debugging will fail on device."

Here is the final consolidated result :

1.If we did install that SDK (10166) while building 10166. The app we are trying to debug was 8.0 Silverlight, so not sure if the SDK was relevant.

2.The powershell command had no results

3.run the reg file, restarted, debugging once again works and the IpOverUsbSvc shows up when I run that powershell command.
