I highly doubt it is not running because of the OS because I'm sure many of of use Windows 8. You may need to download extra files(not many) though to run the program such as .NET and openAL. Also make sure you run as the administrator.

Ok, let's not get too crazy. Can you please post a screenshot of your OpenBVE directory?

Do any of the other applications work? Like RouteViewer?

Interesting. It's been a while since I've encountered this issue. Let me see if I can find a fix. If not, I'll ask around.
