[HELP] VDrift installation complete guide for Windows 7 and Windows XP. - miamoore1993 - 11-29-2013

Hi, Blush

1. Installed vdrift-2012-07-22.exe
2. Installed vdrift-2012-07-22a_patch.exe
3. Installed vdrift-2012-07-22b_patch.exe
4. Installed Git-1.8.4-preview20130916.exe
5. Installed Slik-Subversion-1.8.4-win32.msi
6. Installed codeblocks-12.11mingw-setup.exe

I installed all of this from Windows 7 and Windows XP with a decent GPU Video card (not a builtin gpu video).
Still the same. Nothing happens (no any windows or dialog box appeared) when i opened the vdrift.exe directly from installed folder.

Is it really needs compiling? How? Confused

Please help..

Thanks,

mia Blush

Hi mia

You only need the vdrift installer (and optionally the patches).

What you also might need:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8328

(I didn't include them into the setup unfortunately, assumed they would be available on win7 systems.)

If the game still doesn't start, look in your Documents directory:
C:\Users\{your username here}\Documents\VDrift

There should be a log.txt file. Post its content here.

Hello NaN,

Thank you for your reply.

Still no any respond like windows or alert/dialog prompt when i open/run the vdrift.exe.

And there is no vdrift folder on my documents folder exist. I think vdrift folder dont exist because the game (maybe) does not start at all. vdrift.exe dont exist on task manager after i open/run the vdrift.exe.

Visual C++ already installed and the windows both xp and windows 7 are fully updated. Antivirus is totally removed before i reinstall the vdrift. And even used another drive to reinstall new windows for making sure.

Maybe you could provide a portable version that everything on it in one folder.

Thanks,

mia

You could try one of the development builds (vdrift-2013-06-01.exe): http://sourceforge.net/projects/vdrift/files/vdrift/nightly%20builds/

Those builds come without an installer, are self-extracting archives, and have a debug version vdriftd.exe.

Also would be great if you could get the crash event log: http://www.cyberlink.com/support/faq-content.do?id=10449

I'm having the same problem. I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I cannot get vdrift to run at all. Simply nothing happens after double clicking the vdrift.exe file. There's no error message and no vdrift folder gets created in My Documents either.

- First I installed vdrift-2012-07-22
- Then I tried vdrift-2013-06-01 over the top
- Then vdrift-2012-07-22b_patch over that.
- I also tried the Visual C++ 2010 redistributables posted here.
No change.

Also there's no crash event log. It seems far as Windows is concerned the program was never executed on my system. Any suggestions?

System:
Win 7 64bit
Intel Corei7-3770K CPU @ 3.5GHz
16GB RAM
nVidia GF GTX 680 (v331.82 drivers)
