USB dongle on Hyper-V

Installing Avaya IP Office on an XP virtual server hosted on Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V but cannot get the guest OS (XP) to install the drivers for the dongle.
-Dongle is inserted in the Host (2008 R2 server) and drivers successfully installed.
-Using USB to Ethernet Connector 4.0 by Eltima Software to share the USB Dongle.
-Dongle shows up in guest OS and appears in Device Manager as SafeNet USB SuperPro/UltraPro but with yellow ! - Windows cannot load the device driver.
-I've installed the driver from the Sentinel website and rebooted but still driver not working.

I feel like it must be related to the USB over Ethernet as I've never used that before.

Any ideas appreciated.

Hardware dongles are nor supported in Hyper-v and USB over Etherner is an immulation. So that could be the reason why it's not working. Did you try on a more resent guest OS like Windows 7 for example? You can download trial version.
