[Dupe] Install and Open Program issue

After installing cubase 8 and trying to open the program I get an error that says “DWM composition is not running. Please switch to an Aero theme” I’ve opened a report with Steinberg. I got an email response that says with the holidays it may be a while before they can respond.
In the meantime I tried the repair tool, no good, I tried removing and re installing, no good. I tried re downloading, removing previous install and re installing again, still no go. Same error everytime

Hoping for some help.
