    Michael,

    You can rest assured that Windows 8 and AOEO are compatible, as I use this combination daily to play. As for the issue you are experiencing, next time this happens, could you possibly open up Task Manager, and under the Processes tab see if the following exist:

    Age of Empires Online Launcher
    Age of Empires Online

    If you're running Windows 8 64-bit, each will be followed by (32 bit). Also, is this install fresh from the manufacturer, or is this an install that you performed?

    Additionally, based on user reports, Steam does not always install the GFWL framework correctly, leading to the behavior you mention.  You can try to manually install this from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5549
