ADB doesn't see my Kindle HD 7

I picked up the downloads for the Qmenuroot. Installed the ADB drivers referred to in the OP. In my Win7 system's devices manager, I see the ADB driver for the Kindle Fire HD listed as working correctly. Also, the USB driver is in & working, and I can transfer files to/from the kindle. (though I had to re-install the USB driver after I installed the ADB driver)
The problem now is that when I type "ADB devices", it tells me that there are no devices available. Unplug/plug in the USB connection, wait for a bit, "ADB kill-server", "ADB devices" and still no devices available. I have a CMD prompt open in the correct directory. Tried rebooting the kindle, unplug/plug in the USB connector, all kinds of combinations.
I'd like to root this, in anticipation of a JB build for it, (or even ICS) but without ADB, I don't see how.
Has anyone had an issue like this that they have solved? I haven't mastered ADB in any sense, though I've used it to good effect before to un-brick my TF101.

Hope this helps!
Well, I added the magic line you suggested, and this now works for me. I'm surprised that running "C:\android-sdk\tools\android.bat update adb" (the corrct directory for me) didn't fix this.
Ah well - so many things to learn. Thanks for your guidance.
