ErrorJS::RuntimeError in Statuses#index

I have download and redownloaded Ruby on Rails multiple times and re-followed the instructions step by step, yet whenever I try to open it gives me an error page with says this at the top:

ExecJS::RuntimeError in Statuses#index

Showing C:/Users/J_bra_000/Projects/Treebook/app/views/layouts/application.html.erb                                    where line #6 raised:

(in C:/Users/J_bra_000/Projects/Treebook/app/assets/javascripts/statuses.js.coffee)
Extracted source (around line #6):

3: <head>
4:   <title>Treebook</title>
5:   <%= stylesheet_link_tag    "application", :media => "all" %>
6:   <%= javascript_include_tag "application" %>
7:   <%= csrf_meta_tags %>
8: </head>
9: <body>
Rails.root: C:/Users/J_bra_000/Projects/Treebook

I had all of this downloaded on my other computer, which ran Vista, but when I bought my new laptop, which runs windows 8, it would not work. Does anyone know what the problem is or how I can fix it? Also, when I go to it runs fine. Only when I try to go to the status section does the error occur.

I'm not 100% sure this will work but try downloading node from http://nodejs.org/. Install it and then restart your Rails server and give it another try.
