The drivers don't download and install when I connect the Vodafone smarphone to my windows 7 (SP1) computer when I connect them with the USB cable. I need to do this in order to run mobile apps I am developing on the phone.
I found the following the website which has a number of drivers for Vodafone devices including the Smart Ultra 6: http://androidxda.com/download-vodafone-usb-drivers
Unfortunately downloading and installing the drivers does not help. The computer says that I need to update the drivers to fix the problem. However, it cannot find any updates for these drivers. There is no connection to the device showing in Windows Explorer.
I took the phone back into the Vodafone shop and they said they will see if any of their ninjas have any ideas but that was over a month ago and I have not heard back. I previously had a Samsung GS3 and I had no trouble with connecting that to the same computer.
Solved! See solution

Additionally, make sure USB debugging is enabled along with MTP (Under settings/storage/overflow menu/USB to PC/MTP).

Hello, I'm having the same issue, and not only with Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 but also with Alcatel One Touch Pop 7041x and I'm really really TIRED of this.
I need to use the USB Debugging mode to use several applications from the PC, but my Windows is saying always that couldn't install the drivers.
-I already tried to install the drivers just by connecting the mobile phones to PC, DIDN'T WORNED.
-I already tried to install the Adb Drivers from this webpage but after installed it, the debug mode still doesn't work and on driver manager it is being shown as drivers not installed: http://androidmtk.com/download-vodafone-usb-drivers DIDN'T WORKED.
-I already downloaded the Adb Drivers from another webpage, DIDN'T WORKED.
-I even found the webpage from the official developer of the Adb drivers, I installed them, and also DIDN'T WORKED.
I don't know what's happening, is really strange when the same issue is happening on two devices.

Yes I have admin rights (sorry the doublepost, the forum didn't let me write after have inserted the image).
In addition, this issue was happening also on Windows 10. I'm currently using Windows 7 x64 Home Premium.
