Default [Q] Cannot Unlock Bootloader on Windows 8.1


I cannot get the bootloader unlock working on my Win 8.1 laptop by any means. If I try through hasoon2000's toolkit, I get the error that the ADB server did not ACK (whatever that means). If I try using the command line and HTC's official method of getting the TokenID, I get a message that a certain ADB-related dll is not installed. I have installed the USB drivers that come with hasoon2000's toolkit about 4 times now. I installed the Android SDK and even Samsung USB drivers. I'm going to uninstall everything, can someone walk me through the step-by-step to get things working? I've read that USB 3.0 is the problem, but I only have USB 3.0 ports on my laptop.
