What kind of graphics card do you have?

What happens when you run the game?

Have you checked for a stdout.txt and stderr.txt in the directory where VDrift is installed? Please post anything you find in either of those.
Here's what the stdout.txt file says

and as for stderr.txt

Quote:ERROR: You don't have an NVIDIA or ATI/AMD card. This game may not run correctly or at all.

Crap, any way I can still run this game then? The graphics card I have when I checked my display in Control Panel is the Mobile Intel ® 45 Express Chipset Family (Mircrosoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)
You won't get any shaders but should work.
I copied the file into the vdrift folder in program files but still getting the same results. Am I supposed to alter any file while I'm at it?
You have replaced the vdrift.exe with the one in the zip file and it still doesn't start? Strange, I've got the same chipset.

Check your driver: Try deleting the content of C:\Users\Quincy\My Documents\My Games\VDrift folder.
I dunno about that video chipset. Sad
