I am running win 8.1 x64 and have followed this guide because I tried to resolve this message:
I have found this kb article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2468307
I have also closed zune, deleted the certificates and restarted zune. which did not help and also tried to add a copy of the certificate to the trusted ones, as listed in the kb article.
I am becoming desperate. The ipoverusbsvc is running fine. I did register a windows phone 8 device and have this error also at an other windows phone 7. So it is just my pc and windows phone 7 devices. Have tried an htc trophy and lumia 800 the lumia 920 (wp8) works fine. The lumia 800 has an active sim in it. the trophy does not (I think) Is it required to have zune logged in (live id)?
edit I have read somewhere that you do not need to launch zune! When I navigate to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.1\Tools\WPConnect\x64
WpConnect.exe it gives this message:
Failed to connect to the device. Ensure that the device is completely booted and is connected to the PC. (0x80070103)
But the phone is booted, swiped away the lockscreen... When I run
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v8.0\Tools\Phone Registration it tells me to verify that ipoverusbsrv should be up and running, which is up and running.
I also added zune to the firewall exceptions and followed these steps on the device: http://forums.wpcentral.com/developers-corner/211829-visual-studio-stopped-connecting-wp7.html
edit 2 I tried to install win 7 in a virtual pc to test if it works on that os. But I got a message that the wp sdk 8 cannot be installed on win7. it was packaged with the visual studio 2012 express for windows phone...
The device that wanted to be registered as a developer device should be logged in with a Microsoft Live account. If you can download any application from marketplace this means that phone is logged in.
Could you try again registering your device with another usb port or another micro usb cable?
When I run phonereg.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone**v8.0**\Tools\Phone Registration
Your problem is "v8.0". I tried on a Windows 8 (not 8.1) machine running this file - C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.1\Tools\Phone Registration\PhoneReg.exe
and it worked like a charm. Note the "v7.1" in the path.

Correct, but irrelevant. If you want to register a WP7 phone you need to use the WP7.1 SDK
Might be a bit late, but perhaps others try to register their phone in the last minute just like me:
