How to detect an incoming USB device in windows Service on Windows XP machine?
 
Hello Experts,
I an trying to write a simple Windows Service that shall detect any incoming USB device and Launch a GUI application.
                WqlEventQuery query = new WqlEventQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_VolumeChangeEvent WHERE EventType = 2");
                watcher.EventArrived += watcher_EventArrived;
                watcher.Query = query;
                watcher.Start();
                watcher.WaitForNextEvent();
This solution works well in Win 7 However, it fails in XP (I have XP SP3).
 
I found another solution here
Enumerate and Auto-Detect USB Drives[^]
 
This works very well in windows forms application even on windows XP, However it fails when I put it in service even on Win 7
 
Can you please help?
 
Kind Regards
 
Bharat
