These are the step-by-step instructions for installing the Android CDC driver on a computer that runs on a version of the Windows operating system. The screenshots are using Windows 10, more specifically, but the same process should be working on other versions, too.
The Android CDC driver can help by equipping you with the necessary computer drivers for your smartphones that run on versions of the Android operating system, such as if you were to be connecting your mobile device to a Windows PC in the hopes of using the Smartphone Flash Tool (SP Flash Tool).
