Install Android USB drivers in windows 7 64/32-bit

A New Android drivers. I am now happy doing some cool Android development and doing it on the MAC is amazingly simple, just connect the device to the USB port and enable USB debugging by doing the following on your device:

Follow the path:

  • Settings > Applications > Development > Enable USB Debugging
Anyways, after much loosing time and hair, the easiest solution was to use PDANet.  So just download PDANet and follow the instructions, it really solves all the nasty issues in Windows 7 to get the pesky USB drivers to work and as an added bonus, you can use it to tether your phone!
The problem, as with the majority of things, is windows #fail.  To get your Android phone to work on windows 7 so you can debug it and install apps is a pain in the buttocks.

I wanted to use my G1 to debug my application. Somehow the offical USB Drivers for android devices do not install on windows 7 64 bit.
The solution for this problem was:
  1. Install PDANet: It installs the drivers correctly.
  2. (Optional) Go to device manager and update the driver of the android device: select the driver from the offical usb driver folder.
