Should autodetect the phone upon reboot now that the driver is available. Verify that it gets detected and installs the driver.
Note: If you go this route and it works to perform the RUU, you may want to uninstall HTC sync before continuing with Scotty's root procedure as it may interfere. Honestly I thought your current driver should be working but for some reason it isn't so...may be worth a shot.
I will give that a try I suppose. However, windows did once already recognize & install the drivers & I haven't rebooted nor changed anything since than.
Oh & if windows isn't recognizing phone, would I not have Not been able to do anything with the phone, via computer thus far? Yep, double checked & usb drivers are installed. Perhaps not good enough drivers vs. HTC's drivers?
