Game window opens, but stays blank, freezes/crashes

Game window opens, but stays blank, freezes/crashes

First off, my system specs:

Processor - Intel P4 3.00GHz
RAM - 1024MB RAM
Video Card - GeForce6600 256MB
OS - Windows SP2

I installed the Windows version of VDrift (vdrift-setup2006-02-21.exe) from Sourceforge. It asked for OpelAL32.dll, which I downloaded from a link in the forums.

The problem I'm having is that when I run VDrift.exe, the program's window opens, but it does absolutely nothing. It goes on staring back at me unless I get tired of waiting and close it, which is usually after 2-3 mins (I don't have the patience to wait longer, I'm sure the program will win)

I looked into the log files and the only one which says anything is the file "utility.txt". What is says is this:
Could not find texture: data/tex/data/cars/mustang_gt/interior.png
Could not find texture: data/cars/mustang_gt/interior.png
I then searched for the data folder, but couldn't find it.

I have tried to be as precise as possible; hope that it's enough info. The problem itself is simple to me; apparently, the data folder is missing, but what I do not understand is how that's possible as I just installed the software.

All that precision for nothing
Umm...I found a solution in the forums after all. Seems theres a problem with the Windows installer, which does not put all the folders in the VDrift\data\ folder by itself.

The solution is to create a VDrift\data\ folder and paste all other folders (yes, folders only) into the new data\ folder. The game ran fine for me, except that I'm having a bit of trouble configuring the controls....

a new version is coming soon, where assigning controls changed, so probably it works better than.
the data problem + .dll problem are fixed too

I need to (v)drift, man!
