Try using compatibility mode on the game .exe (set to Windows XP).
With Big Fish games you have to enable hidden files to see the game .exe.

While you're in the compatibility settings, set the game to run as administrator (checkbox on compatibility tab).

Big Fish shortcuts point to their launcher, not the game .exe, so it doesn't help anything to change compatibility mode on the desktop shortcut made by Big Fish. You have to go digging into the game's install folder.

family, I also have this game and I just downloaded it to my Windows 8.1 computer. The game loaded and is playing perfectly. I'm not sure what to tell you here.

Maybe try different video card drivers?
What video card do you have?

It might also help if you can play the game windowed instead of full screen.

This is an old low resolution straight hidden object game. I see I got mine in 2009. I'm playing on my higher end GTX 660 Ti video card. Since the game won't even start for you, maybe uninstall the game and download again?
