Currently, we don't support BDS running on Windows 8 offically. You can check the system requirement here.

I have here a link to system requirements for Building Design Suite. It didn't mention Windows 8, but you can try. However, we cannot guarantee that it will function properly. This is why we have specifically listed the requirements to which the product is compatible with.
It'll likely fail to install due to .NET Framework, being that v4.5 is pre-installed with Windows 8. You'll have to do some modifying of the setup.ini installation files to get the product suite installed on there in Windows 7 compatibility mode, as Administrator. It can be done, but it is not supported at this time.
