Which version did you download and install? If you have 64-bit Windows 8, you should download and install the build marked with "2008R2+". Their download page indicates that:

The Windows 2008+ build uses newer features of Windows to enhance performance. Use this build if you are running with 64-bit Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, or greater.

If you are using 32-bit Windows 8, you should download the 32-bit Windows version. Of course the 32-bit version has some limitations, such as a max database size of 2GB.

Though the documentation page tells that 2008R2 works on windows 7 or greater, It didn't work on Windows 8. I have installed regular 64 bit version and it did work.
