Based on the following MSDN blog[^], it looks like:
SQL Server Express versions that will be supported on Windows 8 are:
- SQL Server 2008 Express SP3 and above.
- SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP1 and above.
- SQL Server 2012 Express.

Based on above, I would assume, follwoing too should work on Windows 8:
- SQL Server 2008 SP3 and above.
- SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 and above.
- SQL Server 2012.

In your case, make sure you have SP3 or R2-SP1 above install.
