  • Double click on the Android-desktop-Remote.exe. You should get a promtp indicating the Windows has blocked access. You will need to allow access for the software to communicate with your Android device.
  • Start the Android App on your tablet or phone. You should now see it appear inside the "Allow or Block" window.
