Windows 8 had a MAJOR update earlier this week, which MAY mean that your graphic adapter driver has been made "out of date" by Windows
What is your exact brand/model graphics adapter (ATI or nVidia or ???)
What is your exact graphics adapter driver version?
Have you gone to the vendor web site to check for a newer driver?
For Windows, do NOT rely on Windows Update to have current driver information
-you need to go direct to the vendor web site and check updates for yourself

nVidia Driver Downloads http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
You may need a chat person to do a "remote viewing" of your computer
Chat Now button near the bottom for Activation and Deactivation may help

They have the same problem.
I have two graphics, one on my CPU which is Intel HD Graphics 4600 and a card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M.
If I disable my Intel Graphics then the program launches.
