How can I update my Samsung Galaxy S4 applications and games using the latest Samsung Kies 3 software?

I want to update my applications and games using Samsung Kies.

Unfortunately, Samsung Kies 3 is only compatible with devices that are newer than the Samsung Galaxy Note3. In other words, devices released before October of 2013 -- including your Samsung Galaxy S4 -- will not work with Samsung Kies 3. However, you can still use an older version of Samsung Kies to update your Samsung Galaxy S4 and keep its information backed up. Click here to download the original version of Samsung Kies. Once the application has installed, plug your phone into your computer and follow the onscreen instructions to sync your phone with your computer. You will then be able to backup and sync your Samsung Galaxy S4's information. You may not be able to update your applications and games through Kies, though, as application updates are done through the Google Play Store. Simply open the Google Play Store, tap the menu button in the upper right-hand sign of the screen and tap My Apps. You will then be able to update any applications and/or games that have updates available to them.

How can I get Kies to read the USB driver?

I have been trying to update to Lollipop. I have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4. I keep getting a notification that I have a system update. I try to update OTA and it fails. I cleaned out a lot of space and I am attempting to update via Kies. Kies reads my phone and says there is a Firmware update. When I go to update, it says that I need to download the USB drivers. So I follow the instructions, but I keep getting the same message when I go to repeat the process. I am running XP
