      I think you are missing something..First install all the drivers properly and Enable USB Debugging. Copy the .apk file where Fastboot & ADB is extracted for Windows OS its in Win32 i think. Then connect your device and run cmd and enter this command adb device to check your device is connected or not. Then run the second command given into to article (Don’t mistake in spelling) and hit enter..

          It means that your device is not connected properly. Install all USB Drivers properly in your PC and launch cmd and type adb devices to check that your device is connected or not.
