How do I pair my Sixaxis PS3 controller with my Android device?

Hi guys!
So I’ve been busting my head for a few weeks now trying to use my PS3 controller on my Android. The reason why I can’t seem to get it to work is because after I install the Sixaxis pair tool on my PC I plug in the PS3 and from here the program gets stuck on ” installing driver”. I get this with the 0.1 version of the program.

I also tried to use the newest version( something like 0.25). With this, after I install it, I right-click on it, run as Admin. I then plug in the PS3 via USB and it shows some pop-up windows and it’s installing the driver( at least so it says). After a few minutes the pop-ups go away and I’m left with the main window which says, as well, “installing driver”. So I’m stuck again!!

I don’t know what to do. If someone can, please help me!
