Before running the game, you need to connect Wii remotes to your PC. Make sure you have bluetooth (built-in or a USB bluetooth adapter). Right-click the bluetooth icon and select "Add a Device". Press the red sync button on a wii remote, and it will appear in the device menu as "HID input device" or "Nintendo RVL-CTL-01". Quickly double-click the icon, and click "pair without a code". If you connected correctly, the wii remote lights should keep flashing. Repeat this process to connect up to 7 wii remotes. 

Once your wii remotes are all connected and flashing, start the game.
