Depends on what viewer you are trying to use under Windows 8. All older Viewer 1.x based viewers currently have problems or won't even run at all (CoolVL, Phoenix, Singularity). V3-based viewers should be fine though.

What worked for me was to run SL in compatibility mode for Vista. Find the actual program viewer (not the shortcut to it). Right click it and choose properties. Click on run in compatibility mode and use the dropdown menu to select an option. I chose Vista because I know SL works well in that OS, but others may work well too. Then Win8 will run SL and ask you if it worked in that mode. Answer yes and it will always use that compatibility mode. If you choose no, it will prompt you to try another choice. XP didn't work for me but Vista did fine.

I solved the problem of the error with graphics, after searching everywhere, downloading  the AMD Catalyst™ 13.3 Windows® Beta Driver. Now it is working all right. I hope it lasts.  
My laptop has an AMD Radeon HD 7600M Series, and  Intel® Core i7.

I got SL to run on WIN 8 (on a Surface Pro) only after going to the Intel site and downloading the latest HD driver. This was needed in spite of Windows telling me I had the latest graphic driver. There are still problems with right click but it at least works.
