Windows XP x86 & x64 and Windows 7 x86 & x64 compatible.

Here is a short script I wrote to get you all up and running with the Nook color in Device Manager and the USB Drivers to get ADB running.

Download (Win XP/7)
After download/extract run adbfix.bat

Code:
@echo off
echo *****************************************
echo * We will create the directory .Android *
echo *  We will also create the adb_usb.ini  *
echo *****************************************
md "%USERPROFILE%/.Android"
echo 0x2080 > "%USERPROFILE%\.Android\adb_usb.ini"
echo Success
echo.
echo.
echo.
ping -n 2 127.0.0.1 >NUL
echo **************************************************
echo * We will open Device Manager for you...         *
echo * You should see Android Composite ADB Interface *
echo * It will be under Andriod Phone.                *
echo **************************************************
echo.
echo ************************************************************
echo * If you don't see it go find "USB Mass Storage Device"    *
echo * It will be under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers"      *
echo * Double click it and goto the "Details Tab"               *
echo * Drop down to Hardware Ids and look for "VID_2080"        *
echo * If you don't see it check another USB Storage Controller *
echo * Once you find the correct one...Uninstall it!            *
echo ************************************************************
echo.
echo ************************************************************** 
echo * Once your done uninstalling click on "Action"...           *
echo * Click on "Scan for Hardware Changes"                       *
echo * It now should find new hardware and fail to install "Nook" *
echo *                                                            *
echo * Install "Nook" with the drivers I provided in this pack.   *
echo * You can find the fixed drivers in the "usbdrivers" folder. *
echo * After your done you should have adb access through DOS!    *
echo **************************************************************
devmgmt.msc
pause
exit

It was indeed for Windows 7 but I've just testing and compiled a Windows XP and Windows 7 version all in one. Uploading and fixing links

Thanks very much. This makes things even easier

Also, your video on youtube of a rooted NC was a big part of why I bought one, so thanks for that too!

I actually dont have the device yet as I live in Vancouver, Canada. I will be getting it tomorrow after a quick trip across the border I'm going to use the steps off nookdevs late tomorrow night to root it after a few minutes of testing out of the box to make sure everything works OK.

I'll certainly leave you some props on the video.

Worked like a charm, which then enabled me to run your Config script which then worked perfectly as well.

Thanks!

Your script worked perfectly. I couldn't connect via USB since I rooted the device, four days ago.

Thank you for your excellent work.
