If you go into Programs > Accessories or Programs > Accessories > System Tools do you see the Command Prompt? Now Right Hand Mouse click over the prompt and choose Run As Administrator
Once the Command Prompt is opened navigate to each utility using the "cd" "cd.." "cd c:\" etc command.
Once you navigate to the Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v17 folder, you will be able to successfully run the batch file through the Administrative prompt.
This still didn't work. I've tried it several times, and I still get nothing from adb. Windows sees the Kindle perfectly, I run a cmd prompt as administrator and manually navigate to the Bin4ry folder, still nothing. I manually navigate to the Qmenu folder and kill server, start server, devices, still nothing. I've installed/uninstalled the drivers so many times I can do it in my sleep. I've tried moving the two folders to the root of my C: and running it there, I've tried Windows 8 pro and Windows 7 on two machines, still nothing. I've changed cables, I've changed USB ports. I've restarted my computer a thousand times, I've rebooted the Fire HD almost as much. I've followed every one of these tuts on rooting the HD on XDA and none seem to work for me. And just to reiterate; yes, install from unknown devices and adb are both enabled on my Fire HD. I've checked several times, I've unchecked them and the rechecked them several times.
It's crazy, because I've used adb to root/mess with my Galaxy S, my wife's Galaxy S, my Kindle Fire, my wife's Kindle Fire, my One S, and my wife's Galaxy S2 with no problem (all in that order). The Fire HD simply refuses to play nice. The one difference is I've switched to an SSD Local/System disk and am dual booting 7 Ultimate and 8 Pro on the computer I previously used to root my devices, but that shouldn't matter.
Sorry for the rant, it's not directed at you, or anyone in particular, it's my Kindle Fire HD. I want to choke it, but it hurts my hands when I try. And it's so pretty I feel bad being mean to it. If anyone had a last ditch effort suggestion for me, I'd be extremely grateful to hear (read) it, even if it doesn't work.
