you need to be in the directory (sdk/platform-tools/) that has the adb.exe in it, or edit the PATH variable on your computer.
Assuming windows vista or higher:
Press windows key + E to open explorer
Find your SDK folder
Shift + right click on the platform-tools folder
chose "open command window here"
then try adb.

Easy way -- put a shortcut to the sdk folder on your desktop. Open it and shift+right click on the platform-tools folder when you need to use adb.
Harder way, but the right way -- add your sdk\platform-tools and sdk\tools folder to your PATH:
How do I set my system path under Windows? - MATLAB & Simulink
then whenever you open the cmd window you can just type adb without worrying what folder you're in.

Also I have been trying to flash new themes and had no success. I made sure the theme was compatible. it keeps aborting the flash when i do it. basically what ive been doing is
1.DL the theme (zip) to my comp
2 plug in my phone transfer the whole file to my SD card
3. boot into recovery
4. wiped cache
5."select zip from sd"
6. then selected the zip file i want to flash
7. selected install file.
Here is the link. Its the theme in the first post.
Is that correct? or am i way off. Thanks. I didnt want to creat another thread thats why i asked here
