Connect TP to a USB port.
In Windows, right click on the icon "Computer" and then left click on "Properties"
You should see the TP with a yellow exclamation mark indicating missing drivers.
Right click on it and left click "Update Driver Software." Chose browse computer and point it to where the drivers folder is located.
Okay thanks.. it was not exactly like that, a little more convoluted in having to get it to bypass wanting to use the Wizard and asking for the Xp disk, but you set me on the right path.
For PC tards like me, here is what you need to do to install drivers and get root!!
-right click computer
-opens system properties and select Hardware tab
-select device manager tab
the ? mark next to the Asus android devices
-select driver tab
-when wizard opens select "no,not at this time" to bypass wizard wanting XP disk install from a specific location so you can manually choose location
-pick where you put the drivers by navigating to the provided drivers folder and pick Android directory in the drivers folder provided
-let them install
-attach Asus tablet
-click the viperMod primer tool and viola...
