Why won’t Hospital Tycoon play on my Windows 8 computer?

I am trying to play Hospital Tycoon on my new windows 8 computer. It is played through Steam. When I try to click on it on my desktop it does nothing. When I try to click on it through Steam it says that it is already running. My bf just bought a windows 8 computer also and he can play it with no issues. I do not know why my computer will not play it. Steam will let me run as administrator ( which did not work), but Hospital Tycoon does not have the option to run as administrator. I have tried everything I have looked up and nothing has worked. Any ideas will be helpful. My computer is the HP Envy Leap Motion SE.

    I googled, and it struck me that few people actually knew how to resolve this issue. Your best bet might be to grab a Windows XP VM for free (courtesy of Microsoft), and install Hospital Tycoon in there.
