Outlook 2010 will not install on Windows 8

I purchased new computer with windows 8 and loaded my MS Office home/student version.  Excel, Word, Powerpoint all work but when I try and start Outlook, a window pops open and asks for my license code.  I enter the code and it appears to load, Outlook opens, but then a window opens and asks for the license code again.  It's stuck in an endless loop.  I'm not setting up email with Outlook; just want to use it to manage contacts.  This is so frustrating!
