If you have problems, please try the following:

Cleanup drivers

  1. Download USBDeview from here.
  2. Extract the downloaded zip file.
  3. While the phone is still plugged in, open USBDeview and sort by manufacturer.
  4. Find all the HTC drivers and delete them.
  5. Unplug the phone from the USB cable and plug it back in.
  6. The correct drivers should either install automatically or prompt you to install a driver.

Install drivers

  1. Download the latest drivers from here.
  2. Unzip and specify the extracted location in the install driver dialog.
