Does this require files being pushed to my phone, recovery for example, to be in the same directory?

Works great on Mac running Parallels 9 and Win 7 (32 bit)

I had so many problems lately with the ADT Bundle or SDK tools connecting to my Nexus 7 2013. This installed in 32 seconds on my Mac Air running Parallels 9 and Win 7 and was able to see my Nexus straightaway. Love it, thanks! :D

No, files you need to work with can be in any directory, just be sure to "cd" with cmd to same directory as your files

And for that fastboot problem, try to manually select driver, instructions are in attachemt in 1st post or here: howto_driver.zip

I don't recall ever having to use a generic adb driver for any android phone I've tinkered with.
I have Motorola Device Manager 2.4.5 & Samsung USB Drivers installed and no problems with the Verizon phones that I connect.
What drivers am I missing if all I did was copy over adb, fastboot and their dll's from the platform-tools folder from the SDK?
(I did the copy to %windir% yesterday, before your thread made FP News, made sense to me since I hate PATH=)
I was able to use adb just fine with a Sammy i110 and motofastboot.exe (custom) just fine with an XT862, on Win 8.1 64 bit here.

    Hello, I need help. When I am installing ADB the program crashes before third step and in the log is written this.
    'XCOPY' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    Read the post above yours & follow the link. ;-)
    View attachment 5723383Can someone helps me install adb drives?. My PC appears like that! Show me how to fix this bug!
    See that post above:

    Uninstall/delete 15 seconds ADB and Fastboot, install another one with actual binaries like this for example:

    Download links for all platforms and troubleshooting in the first post.
    Easiest way if you are running Windows,download the latest installer version:
    You'll find all needed download links in the first post of ADB and Fastboot++ incl drivers (see attached screenshot.

    15 seconds ADB Installer v1.4.3
    ADB, Fastboot and Drivers

    What is this?
    This is All-in-One installer for 3 most needed PC tools for Android. No need to download big SDK for 3 small things. I originaly made it for my Kurdish friend AnGrY DuDe in early 2013. I saw another ADB installer on XDA, but it wasn't good enough for me so i'm finaly posting it here. It's very small and fast installer for tools and drivers.

    Small - 9.18 MB
    Fast - 15 seconds install (many times its even less)
    AIO - ADB, Fastboot and also Drivers
    Easy to install - just run it and program will guide you
    Clean - ADB and Google Drivers from latest SDK

    Install process:
    1. Run it (Require administrator privileges)
    2. Press Y/Yes to install ADB and Fastboot or N/No to skip
    3. Press Y/Yes to install ADB system-wide or N/No for current user only
    4. Press Y/Yes to install Drivers or N/No to skip
    5. Continue Driver installation
    6. 15 seconds passed - finished!

    System-wide: ADB and Fastboot are installed to %SystemDrive%\adb directory, and added system-wide path.
    Current user only: ADB and Fastboot are installed to %UserProfile%\adb directory, and added path for current user.
    CMD can use ADB and Fastboot from any directory.
    Drivers are installed to system - no need to install them from directories.
    Installer automaticly decides if install 32-bit or 64-bit drivers.
    If anybody got problem with detecting device, go see picture guide View attachment howto_driver.zip
    If installation fails, then post here contents of "adb-installer.log" from desktop. (if there is any)

    If you have problem with driver enumeration in Windows 8.1 install update KB2917929

    If you have older Google USB Driver installed, please uninstall it from Control Panel before installing new

    If you have previously installed it as system-wide and now you want it current user only (or vice-versa), it won't remove it, you must do it yourself. (at least for now)

    Mod edit
    In this post it was brought to my attention that this installer installs a very outdated version of ADB and its related tools.
    It's highly recommended you use the latest version from this XDA Portal post instead, as it fixes issues with newer devices.
    If you wish to proceed, that is of course okay as this installer arguably provides an easier way to get going with ADB for some people, but do know that it's currently very outdated.

    - Initial release
    when the installaton got succesful i got notiication from Bitdefender that Ransomeware behaviour detected by adb-setup-1.4.3.exe. Is this file reallly safe and one more thing i wasn't able to download adb file from your source so i used other webpage. xda forum is not letting me paste the here for now.
    Use this its the original direct download from xda.
    Nice! Thank you. Will give this a shot. My adb/fastboot quit working when I moved and I cannot get it uninstalled or reinstalled for some reason. Have even tried other one click packages and still no go. Will try tonight. Does this need internet connection to install proper drivers, or are they packaged?

    Edit: I just looked at the driver pics and it appears they're local. Great! Thank you.

    Sent from my EVO 4G LTE using XDA Premium 4 mobile app

    This is WinRAR SFX archive that will start batch script, adb is copied using xcopy and drivers are installed using DPInst - Driver Package Installer from Windows Driver Kit, whole thing is extracted to temp directory and deleted after completition.

    And yes, no internet conection is required.

    How much did installation took ?
