USB problems with GSViewer

I have been enjoying Gamesalad for a couple of months now and was looking forward to testing my creations on an Android tablet using the GSViewer application. Having taken all the necessary steps to prepare my tablet for the app I went ahead and tried to connect Creator and Viewer via WiFi. I had the 'Preview on Android' button appear on my creator window but upon clicking it there was a message saying 'WiFi not supported on your device, please use USB'. I then disabled WiFi on my tablet and connected it to my computer via USB, however I never get the 'Preview on Android USB' button. Has anyone else had this issue? I have looked through the forums and the internet at large but could not seem to find anybody experiencing the same problem.

Sorry for the long query, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    @BlackCloakGS Hi BlackCloak, I did set the ADB path in Gamesalad preferences, I did that first as I had a feeling I might forget it later.

    is adb debug turned on in the device? Also if you run adb devices
    on in terminal does your device show up?

    @BlackCloakGS I turned on the debug option on the tablet but didn't try running the devices script in terminal yet, it seemed to recognise the device via WiFi okay so I assumed it would via USB too but it wouldn't hurt to check. I am entirely new to the whole process so I appreciate the advice.

    We use ADB to detect andoroid device over usb. If the button is not showing up that means the path is not set to ADB correctly or ADB devices is not reporting back that the device is connected. here is some more info on ADB

    @BlackCloakGS This is why assumptions are deadly, thank you for the help, I will look into it and let you know how I get on.

    @BlackCloakGS Hi BC, I managed to get the viewer working by troubleshooting with the ADB Devices command in Terminal and changing various settings on the tablet. My projects look great on the device and now I can really sink my teeth into their development. Thank you very much, your advice saved me a whole lot of time and trouble! :)
