After I have entered download mode I could not run odin as administrator and I did not get ''Added'' message after I have connected the device with my PC what should I do?

To run odin as admin in Windows you need to have administrative privileges of that system. About the connection issue, please install the Samsung USB drivers and also enable USB debugging mode on your grand prime.

When did you tried to reboot? After doing all the steps or in between. If you did that in between there is always a chance to brick your device. Now do one thing. Remove your phone battery and after a few seconds reinsert it and switch it back on. It will work.
