Missing AdbWinApi.dll
Hi

Thanks for the rooting guide for the HTC Desire 530. I'm a little stuck when trying to unlock the boot loader.

when I try to run the fastboot.exe it tells me i'm missing the AdbWinApi.dll file. My Java. SDK and HTC sync manager are all installed and up to date. Is there any way of getting the dll file required or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you in advance
