    Sorry to mention but you forgot a step –
    plug the phone to the pc – at this moment on the notification area in the phone there will be 3 options on how to connect the phone to the pc – 1) as a media drive 2) mtp connection 3) ptp connection
    select ptp connection AND ONLY AFTER DOING THIS – OPENT THE COMMAND PROMPT and execute the line as requested
    the line in the command prompt will request from the phone that it reboots itself into recovery mode automatically and it is at this point you will have the options to upload the adb file after which you will reboot system and the rooting will have complete in proper fashion,
    unplug the cable and you are finished to verify root and install superuser

    your copy/paste from other sites is not quite appropriate when VERY IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS ARE LEFT OUT
    users wonder what did they do wrong when they fail time and again not of their own fault
