The Windows 10 Creator update (Version 1703 (OS Build 15063.0) and newer) changed some internal Windows services which causes the Windows Mobile Device Center to not work anymore.

This issue can be solved by changing some values in the registry.

Open the command line as an administrator and run these two commands:

  • REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RapiMgr /v SvcHostSplitDisable /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
  • REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WcesComm /v SvcHostSplitDisable /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

After that, reboot your PC and the Windows Mobile device center should work again.
