It looks like you did not install Java run time.
After you install Java runtime ejss editor should launch.

It is difficult to say more without an error message or some more information.
A simple problem might be that you did NOT unzip the distribution file but are rather trying to run from the file viewer (that shows a view of files inside a zip without decompressing it).
Please, make sure you 'unzipped' the distribution file, and then run the extracted EjsConsole.jar file.

If this does not work, please open a windows prompt file, cd to the directory where the EjsConsole.jar file is and type at the C:\ prompt the following "java -jar EjsConsole.jar"

Then, copy and send us the (maybe lengthy) error messages that you will surely get.

Best of lucks,
