Hi All,
Please, someone of you knows if are there problems with Google USB Driver and Windows 8.1?

I have the trial version of B4A on an ASUS notebook with Windows 8.1 and Android SDK Manager shows that Google USB Driver rev. 11 is installed.
I can compile an app and run/debug it on the emulators, but if I connect via USB an android smartphone (SAMSUNG GT-I5500 or Galaxy S3), with Debug USB option enabled, the smartphone is not seen by the computer and B4A cannot connect to it.
When I use B4A on a Windows XP computer I can connect to it these smartphones via USB with no problems.

Please Someone has some ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks a Lot. Bye.

The Google USB Driver is required for Windows only in order to perform adbdebugging with any of the Google Nexus devices. The one exception is the Galaxy Nexus: the driver for Galaxy Nexus is distributed by Samsung (listed as model SCH-I515).

Windows drivers for all other devices are provided by the respective hardware manufacturer, as listed in the OEM USB Drivers document.
