It probably needs administrator privileges.  Have you tried looking here?

Hi.

> I can't get this program running on my laptop after installing
Please explain what is happening instead. Also tell us if Cisco wrote somewhere that it is fully compatible with 8 or else.

What version are you trying to install?

I tested Version 2.7 on Windows 8 and it installs and works fine. I didn't bother testing other versions. Log on to your Cisco page and download version 2.7

It requires java plugin and flash player by the way

when I run the program, I don't get an error, the program loads up
when I try to enter in a new IP address, username and password, it won't let me enter anything. it appears to be a java issue but I can't tell for sure.

Go with an earlier version of Java.  I have nothing but problems with different versions of CCP, ASDM, etc and different versions of Java.  It's a nightmare.

Also, make sure your device cert and crypto keys use at least a 1024-bit key.  IE10 doesn't support 512-bit keys.
