Issue was resolved by launching the application in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode (despite that Logitech lists this version as Windows 8 compatible):

  • Right click on Logitech Harmony Remote Software 7 shortcut and select Properties
  • Change to Compatibility tab
  • Check Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
  • Click Apply and close dialog
    Windows XP Service Pack 3 compatibility mode

Now application will launch in Windows XP comparability mode and should work just fine.
