Fixing a startup issue with Neverwinter on Windows 8?

I seem to have a problem, on startup, when I run Neverwinter on Windows 8. I let the patch go through, I run as administrator (I've even done that) and I still encounter a Cryptic Application Crash.. I have tried: I've restarted my computer and I'm about to reinstall.. I think it was caused by: Going to try a new destination folder. Don't know if all the files are being installed properly.
