Subject FB 2.1 on windows 8

Does FB2.1 run on windows 8 ...

I installed the last 2.1 version o a windows 8 tablet (8.1)

In trying to connect to my database with SQL Manager

I get Connection failed Server is stopped or unproper client library is used to establish connection to the server

I have done the install a number of times with no luck

Some guidance would be be appreciated
