Technic Launcher broken in Windows 8

My Technic Lanucher does not start. It just has the screen that says “Technic Launcher”. There is no .techniclauncher folder created, and I have to kill the process with task manager. There are no Windows 8 graphic drivers for my computer and I am using the latest version of Java. Why is this happening?

EDIT: I am using the graphic drivers that came with Windows. However, as Notch stated, these drivers are not optimal for gaming and stuff like that.

    Various searches indicate that many people have problems with Technic Launcher using default Windows 8 video drivers. There is currently no fix. Either downgrade to Windows 7 or (assuming vanilla Minecraft runs at all) look into converting your map for FTB or another modpack that includes the same mods, but with a launcher that doesn’t have these issues.

    I know, that this comment is WAY WAY Late, but for others who may be having the problem like me (well i found a fix a few mins ago) and decide to come here for help; so the way i fixed it was by checking the log and finding out that it says something along the lines…”Feature no longer supported in 8″ which means Java Version 8, and windows 8+ comes with java 8 (i think it does) so go ahead and Download Java Version 7 on the website, by any chance if your seeing this past April 2015, than the Java 7 is taken down!
