Works as of 5/20/2012 on current MagicJack classic......
Big Thanks to semicharm from Post MagicJack as a service - A Better Way for the base of the work i did.

1. Install MJ as usual.

2. Once MJ is finally at the dialpad window and working properly, open Task Manager, click the Processes tab and end the MagicJack.exe process.

3. Run MSConfig, go to the Startup tab, uncheck cdloader2.exe, then click OK.

4. Open My Computer and go to:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming

and move the mjusbsp folder to:

C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming

While you're in My Computer, also note the letter for second drive assigned to the MJ box. If you right click the drive and choose Properties, the correct one will have the name PHONE.

5. You can get rktools.exe to install the Windows 2003 Resource Kit, but you only really need srvany.exe
*** You will get a compatability error ... install anyway!!! ***

6. Copy srvany.exe from "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\" to "C:\Windows\System32"
*** You now can now unistall the Windows 2003 Resource Kit to save space ***

7. Use "sc.exe" to create a new service that launches srvany.exe (included in Win7 and Server 2008)
Code:
 sc create "Srvany Service" binPath= C:\Windows\System32\srvany.exe DisplayName= "Srvany Service"

8. Using RegEdit:
Under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Services\Srvany Service"
Right click the "Srvany Service" key, choose New>Key, and name it Parameters.
Now in the Parameters key, right click, choose New>String Value, and name it Application.
Double click the Application value and set it to:
Code:

C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\mjusbsp\magicJack.exe /scf_magicJackPersonalDataRoot "<Drive Letter>:\magicJack"


Where <Drive Letter> is your MagicJack Drive letter from Step 4

That's ALL! You can either restart your computer or open the services window and start the new Srvany Service service. Once MagicJack as connected, you should get a dial tone.

For Troubleshooting see Post MagicJack as a service - A Better Way and scroll down to the troubleshooting section.
