Briefcase not working at all

OK, so I found this random posting of advice:

and it says at the bottom of that conversation that in windows 8 you have
to install both the 32bit AND the 64bit versions - so I have done that and
now when I change the directory at the command prompt and type 'java
-jar"ODK ..." etc I get this message instead: "Unrecognized option:
-jarODK... Error: could not create the java virtual machine, Error: a fatal
exception has occurred. Program will exit"

Does any of this mean anything to any of you?

If you go to the command line and you type "java -version", what do you get?

" 'java -version' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file "

NO, sorry!! I tried it again, now that I have both versions of java on
there, now I get "java version "1.7.0_10" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment
<build 1.7.0_10-b18> Java HotSpot 64-Bit Server VM <build 23.6-b04,
mixed mode)

Could this have to do with the migration to hrd from master slave? maybe I
did it incorrectly? I am able to log in to aggregate and view the
(encrypted) data, but maybe there is something that I did not do correctly
which is interfering with briefcase?
