You need to manually install the drivers. Depending on where you are in the install process, it might be sort of involved, but then it might just be easy.
Right click "Computer" on your desktop and select "Manage", then on the left there will be a nav tree, click "Device Manager". When that populates, look for "Kindle", or "Amazon", or even "ADB Device" (something along those lines should be there somewhere) with a yellow triangle and right click it then choose "Update Driver". Try to let it do it automatically, but you will probably need to do it manually. If it doesn't work automatically, go back and update drivers again and this time choose "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)", it should pop up a window that gives you the option of "search for the best driver in these locations", try this first but click "Include this location in search" and nav to where your drivers are located (hopefully somewhere easy like your desktop or downloads folder), and then let it try. If that fails go back and choose "Don't Search, I will choose the driver to install" option and then in the list provided find the thing that looks either like a "Kindle" or "Android Device", or "ADB Transport Bridge" or something like that and choose it. This should get you recognized for the tool to works.
