This is the manual:
which I presume you already have...
From the first section (0):
It can be run on a PC with Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP. There are no special requirements for memory size or disk space (note that 100 years of generated data takes 1.5Mb of disk space). LARS-WG requires little processing time for most situations.
Possibly as you're running it on win-8 that may be a reason for the freezing?
Not being familiar with win-8 (I'm on Mac systems and also quite happy with win-7 when I need a windows OS) can't advise on win-8 and possible compatibility modes; but is there anything like that in win-8 that would allow you run the programme in previous windows version compatible mode?
