Look in the folder "%TEMP%" for a file "zim.log" and see if it says anything interesting.
Next, try running this: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zim Desktop Wiki\zim.exe" --standalone --debug (Fix the path to zim.exe if it is not correct.) Whether that opens a window or not, again go look at "%TEMP%\zim.log" and there should be more information in there.
