Has anyone managed to get the USBCV tool to work?

 

It's supposed to verify USB devices. You need at least a specific Intel USB controller, which I have. But it seems like you also need a USB 2.0 hub as well, one that supports removing VCC from each port individually. Such hubs are very rare and hard to get now, especially in Europe.

 

Has anyone managed to make it work on Windows 7? Or even at all on any OS?

[USB 2.0 hub]

  • Exposes a downstream port that can be turned on or off.

A Microchip USB 2 PD 1 port hub is 299USD :

Might DIY as the hub controller can control a FET or IPS :

Sadly the MUTT Pack, which looks ideal, is even less available than those old hubs.
