I am trying to upgrade an LG Volt LS740 to Android 5.0. Have invested several hours with no love returned yet. I would love to read all 166 pages of this thread in search of a solution but I have but one lifetime.
I am using a Windows XP Pro pc. LG United Mobile Driver vers. 220.127.116.11 is already installed on this machine. Driver Signing is set to Ignore (System Default.) Antivirus (Avast free version) is disabled.
I began with instructions here:
This page has a link to adb version 1.4.2. I downloaded and was able to run the program as Administrator, chose System Wide option, but 0 files copied.
Then I found the first page of this thread and downloaded 1.4.3. When attempting to install as Administrator, I get the "Error during execution "install.bat". Access is denied."
I have no clue where to go from here.
I discovered the solution after I posted this. The information was in another post to this thread, but it was disguised in technical jargon and I could not comprehend what was being said. (This often occurs when people write without considering the limitations of their readers.)
So for anyone else struggling with the "Error during execution "install.bat". Access is denied." issue on a Windows XP pc, here is what worked for me. (This may work on other Windows versions.) I was logged in as Administrator when I did this.
1. Download the zip file adb-setup-1.4.3.zip.
2. Extract the file adb-setup-1.4.3.exe into any new folder.
3. If you already have 7-zip installed, you are ready for step 4. If not, download and install 7-zip.
4. Right click on the file adb-setup-1.4.3.exe and choose extract files. Select a folder for the destination.
5. Three folders and one file will be shown in the destination folder.
6. Drag the folder titled "adb" into your " C:\ " directory.
7. Double click the folder titled "driver". You will see two installation exe files. One is for 32 bit systems (DPInst_x86.exe) and the other for 64 bit systems (DPInst_x64.exe). Double click on the appropriate file for your system.
8. The installation program will run.
9. Confirm that adb has been installed by opening a command prompt. At the prompt "C:\>" type "adb version". If installation was successful, you will see the installed version. In my case it was "Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.32 Revision eac51f2bb6a8-android".
