Be sure you right click and run as administrator and make sure no other programs that can talk to your phone are installed (HTC Sync is a common culprit)

Your confusion is understandable, and fairly common. But the differences are significant:

Unlocked: Sense OS with no carrier branding

Developer's Edition: Same as "unlocked" but comes from the factory with bootloader unlocked and no write protection on system partition. The US Developer's Edition is virtually the same in specs to the AT&T version (in fact, the same model ID or MID) meaning it has the same band support, just without AT&T's meddling (bloatware apps, limitations).

Google Play Edition (GPE): No Sense features. This is fairly close to a "pure" Google experience, similar to Nexus branded devices; meaning no manufacturer "skinning" such as Sense (or at least a minimum of it). Another important difference, is that the GPE RUU will modify the partitioning on the phone. The system (OS or ROM) partition is much smaller on GPE, and the "extra" space results in more user-accessible (media) storage. But it also means you can't install most Sense ROMs unless you "convert" back to the Sense partition scheme.; since the system partition is too small to fit a Sense ROM

Depending on what RUU you pick (such as Dev Edition vs. GPE), the band support on the device may change. So be aware.

To fully convert to one of the above, you need to have s-off, then change to the proper CID ( and possibly MID) to match what the RUU requires.
