Cannot install Minewsweeper - this app does not work on your device

Recently I updated the day of Windows 7 Professional x 64 for Windows 8 Pro x 64, so I tried to install the Minesweeper in Windows Marketplace 8, I received the error "Sorry, this app does not work on your device."

While I install other pretty good games, including Mahjong MS and MS Solitaire, I wonder what the problem is with the windows due to the problem... Thank you.
PC configuration: 4 GB of RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo E6420, 640GO HDD with 166 GB free on drive C.
Thank you.
