Default Can't unlock bootloader , waiting for device

Hi all, first of all let me say what a good site/forum/community and good work you been doing !! I tried everything i could to unlock the boot on my htc desire c . I can connect the phone to htc sync manager . then i turn off the phone and boot to bootloader , and windows/usb ports / htc drivers wont recognize the phone so i cant unlock the bootloader , tried the latest htc driver latest HTC Sync Manager . but seems i cant get the identifier token in anyway. In command line after do fastboot oem get_identifier_token i get "waiting for device" i get a message in task bar saying windows cant recognize this device.
Im new to this forum / but im usually good follow steps , idk what im doing wrong im doing my best . hope someone can help me get through this , i would love to have some good ROM's in this phone

Uninstall sync manager (and possibly drivers - unsure but I would)

You only need the drivers to communicate with your handset, sync manager is blocking handset and waiting for a running system

Uninstall sync manager (+ drivers)

Install Only drivers for your handset

Once you're finished flashing/rooting/etc and you have your phone as you like/want it, by all means re-install sync manager but uninstall to reflash a ROM etc

Also check forums for best Windows 7/8 drivers (known to have problems)

My guess is the drivers for Win8 in that case

If all else fails WinXP as last resort for Windows.

Glad it helped

I'd really suggest using Linux. I ran into the same problem, but it was easily fixed by puting "sudo" in front of my commands (sudo gives administrativne privilege on Linux). Maybe you should try running Command Prompt by right clicking it, then -> Run as Administrator?

It was the same when I was initially trying to root my phone, all the guides for Windows seemed exhaustively complicated and in the end they didn't work and somehow I ran into a Linux rooting guide and I did it in no time.
