Hey guys was hoping you could help me out with an issue. I'm trying to install a prolific pl 2303 usb to serial driver on my windows vista ultimate 64 bit edition and I keep getting the same error. Error 1078: The name is already in use as either a service name or a service display name. I've been looking online for similar issues but can't seem to find the exact problem. However it does appear that I need to find the conflicting name in the registry and the modify or delete the entry that is conflicting. My question is, how do I know the name of what is conflicting. I've pulled up my setupapi.dev.log and I don't know what all this means. Hope one of you pros would be able to tell me. What is the service name that is conflicting? Also just so you know I have tried installing this and uninstalling the driver several times with no luck and have even downloaded the most recent driver from the manufacturer. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks guys.

The line "!!! dvi: Add Service: Failed to create service 'Ser2pl'." tells you what's wrong.

Did you try to install other drivers before installing from PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_10311.zip? If so, then uninstall them or search for Ser2pl in the registry and get rid of them (after backing up the registry if you are not confident that you really know what you're doing).

thanks I figured out the issue. I actually ran windows problems and solutions under the control panel and it told me to download intel chipset drivers. Then I had to go through the registry and delete some entries and then uninstall and reinstall the driver again. It works I hope I didn't mess much else up in the process.

In my case, my stupid CSR bluetooth stack was trying to create a bunch of services and devices that had the exact same fricken name as a bunch of corresponding services/devices that come out of the box with windows. Uninstalling/installing wouldn't have worked in my case because CSR just made a fricken mistake with the POS drivers of theirs.

The gist of the problem is that my device driver is trying to use some of the same names that windows already uses. The solution is to edit my device driver's inf files to change the names.

Go to windows\inf\ and look for setupapi.logs. Find out what is causing the problem for you. In my case, I was getting the following errors:

inf: DisplayName="Bluetooth AV Profile" (csrbthav.inf line 111)
!!! dvi: Add Service: Failed to create service 'csr_bthav'
!!! dvi: Error 1078: The name is already in use as either a service name or a service display name.

inf: DisplayName="BthAudioHF Service" (csrbthaudiohf.inf line 60)
inf: Description="Bluetooth Hands-free Audio Service" (csrbthaudiohf.inf line 61)
!!! dvi: Add Service: Failed to create service 'CsrBthAudioHF'.
!!! dvi: Error 1078: The name is already in use as either a service name or a service display name.

Then, I did a search for "Bluetooth AV Profile" and "BthAudioHF Service" and found out what file housed install data for these items. They were in my Program Files\ in a subdirectory for CSR devices. I then just edited the inf files to change the names that were having problems. Then I went to "device manager", updated the drivers for my problem devices and manually pointed the install towards the correct inf file. This finally fixed this problem.
