        I tried the above two methods…, And in addition to that methods I tried from Computer Managemet->Update Driver Software->Browse My Computer for driver software->Android USB devices->Borse the installed C:Program Files (x86)Tinnofolder->and tried all to select all the .inf files but given a prompt like this

        —————————

        Select Device

        —————————

        The folder you specified doesn’t contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems.

        —————————

        OK
