cannot open Amis on windows 8

Forums: 

I just downloaded Amis on my sons brand new windows laptop. It runs windows 8.1?(the newest, latest version)
When I try to open Amis, it says it cannot run Amis because there is something with the configuration and I should check the events..blahblah.
Sorry, it's in Dutch, so I cannot really translate this in english because I know very litttleabout windowscomputers.
What can I do?

Please have a look at the AMIS Troubleshooting steps and in particular try to run AMIS in the compatibility modes.
