Dunno if anyone actually uses 64 bit Vista around here, but if you do, I made a 64 bit version of the USB driver. It's unsigned, so before installing it you'll have to put Vista into test mode or it will refuse to load the driver:

1) Type "bcdedit /set testsigning on" at an admin command prompt
2) Reboot
3) Check to see if the desktop says "Test Mode" on the corners

(I'm not paying $300/yr for a kernel code signing certificate)

After that you should be able to install it like a normal driver. If adb seems to be freezing occassionally, try using adb_fixed.exe instead (don't forget to kill the adb server first).

Awesome! You should see if you can get the changes submitted to Google and then they might be inclined to release it with their signing cert.

Nice job aziwoqpd! I don't use vista myself, but lack of 64 bit vista drivers was a glaring problem.

Mods: this should probably be stickied

Thumbs up Source ?
Hey, that's sounds really great ! Congratulations...

Can you provide the sources to your modifications ?

I'd like to be able to rebuild this myself. Yes, I'm a little anxious at the idea of installing a random driver from the Internet on my system ;)

What's the issue with adb and what does your adb_fixed fixes? My adb seems to work fine, how do I know which one to use?
Could you give the source patch for adb, I like to see what I'm running too
