    I've been trying to do screenshots using debugging mode, but when I click on ddms a screen opens and instantly closes. Anyone know what to do.

    Also, I'm not rooted.

    What operating system are you using?
    Have you verified the correct path variables for java?

    You can try and run the program as admin, and see if that helps. Right click on the file and choose "Run as Administrator." TBH, I doubt this will solve it since I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and don't have to do that.

    You need the proper path set for java. Follow these steps:

    1. Click on the Windows logo (Start button)
    2. Right click on "Computer" and choose "Properties"
    3. Click on "Advanced system settings" in the top left
    4. Click on the "Advanced" tab and click the "Environment Variables" button
    5. In the "System variables" section scroll down and select the variable named "Path"
    6. Click "Edit" when "Path" is selected
    7. Make sure "c:\android\tools" is there (each entry will be separated by a semicolon ";")
    8. Also, check to see if your java path is there, typically something like: ";C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin"

    Glad to hear you figured it out.

    Don't forget to enable debugging on your phone.
