Tips:

-Disable HTC Sync when you do this
-Make sure the port is open
-kill existing ADB.exe processes

otherwise you can get adb server out of date messages and a few other errors

If your adb is giving errors try to disable firewall - that happened to me

Should already do that with adb kill-server command.

I thought it would too.

Kept failing. Manually ending HTC Sync and adb.exe worked though
