You do not need to install ODK briefcase. Just extract the file and you will find ODK-Briefcase-v1.14.0.jar file inside the folder, double click to run this file and follow the steps as per documentation.

Hope this helps

It is a screenshot. You can see that there is not "ODK-Briefcase-v1.14.0.jar" inside

Hi @beg88,

You can download the latest briefcase from the link below

Also see further instructions here

@beg88 It looks like you have WinRAR installed and it's opening the jar instead of letting Java run it.

Not sure what version of Windows you have, but you can change the default program by right-clicking the file, select Open With, then Choose default program. In the Open With window, click the Browse button to open the File Explorer window. You need to find the Java executable (probably c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe) to run the file.

Or you can use the java -jar briefcase.jar command that others have suggested.
