Is this software meant to run on Windows 8? If not, try compatibility mode.

I installed that fine on Windows 8.1. I wasn't able to test the program too much though since I don't know how to use it or have a device for it, but I did get its window to appear.
It might be possible that the program is loading off-screen (possibly due to having another monitor not plugged in that has previously been plugged in). If this is the case, hopefully you can maximize it on your screen by pressing the Windows Flag Key and the Up Arrow Key simultaneously (possibly try the right or left arrow keys to move it if that doesn't work). I couldn't tell from the video; is it showing up at all in the taskbar?
Also, have you tried double clicking it from the task manager? That might help.
You could also try right-clicking the icon -> properties -> Shortcut -> Run: Change to Maximized.
