I have a toshiba encore with W8.1 as well and had the same problems. What seemed to work for me was;
install the lenove gnss driver; search for Broadcom BCM4752 GPS Driver on the lenovo.com support site.
Further reinstall localizer as administrator, and then run it as administrator. Than go outside with clear view at the sky. Be sure both items in the upper right corner of localizer are green (indicating you have a virtual com port, and a gps fix). If both are green, start skydemon, set your com port in setup-gps navigation options. Be patient. If skydemon crashes, close it and start it again. Finally being outside helped me. Once a fix has been achieved, it (later) also worked inside (but not always!). So best is to have a fix before starting sky demon.
Hope this helps.
