Not all windows phone apps work properly on a windows 8 computer. It could also be that you're running 8.1 and maybe the slight differences between the two are enough to break the app. Also, have you used it on a windows 8 phone to see if the app is just plain broken yet?
windows phones are pretty much the smallest player in the smart phone market so it's possible that the app is just not a priority to the developers. Remember CoD Elite?

Is your laptop a touchscreen? I believe it needs a touchscreen it doesn't work with a mouse.

Windows Phone Apps may work funky on Win 8.x, try this No phone/tablet, No problem, run COD App on Windows/Mac

I know for sure that if you have the app on computer it will not let you look at wins or anything like that like the app dose on phones. I was trying to figure the same thing out. but I know for sure its not only you.

Because its touch screen app for Windows 8 devices with touch screen.

Hello titanbatesy,

Thanks for posting.

While you may be able to download the app on your computer, it is not 100% compatible. For a list of all devices that can run the app, please see: https://support.activision.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/Call-of-Duty-App-Compatibility

Thanks,

^JG
