==Prerequisites==
 
* Get the VDrift source code and data [[Getting the development version#Windows|development version]].
 
* Alternatively you can download certain vdrift revisions from gihub/sourceforge web interfaces. For source select a tag and click download https://github.com/VDrift/vdrift and https://github.com/VDrift/vdrift-win. Place vdrift-win into vdrift directory. For data select a tag and download the tarball http://vdrift.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/vdrift/tags/. Place data into vdrift directory.
 
 
 
==Building with Code::Blocks/MinGW==
 
* Download [http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/ latest MinGW]. When asked to select components for install, you only need the base system and the g++ compiler.
 
* Your PATH Environment Variable should contain the MinGW bin path(e.g. C:\MinGW\bin;).
 
* Download [http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/board,20.0.html Code::Blocks nightly]
 
* Run "vdrift-win\premake4 codeblocks" command line from vdrift directory to generate the solution.
 
 
 
==Building with MSVC==
 
* Run "vdrift-win\premake4 vs2008" or "vdrift-win\premake4 vs2010" command line from vdrift directory to generate the appropriate solution.
 
 
 
==Building with Scons(broken)==
 
{{note|SCons will prefer the MSVC tools over the MinGW. So if you have Microsoft Visual Studio installed, you might have problems building VDrift with Scons.}}
 
* Download [http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/ latest MinGW]. When asked to select components for install, you only need the base system and the g++ compiler.
 
* Your PATH Environment Variable should contain the MinGW bin path(e.g. C:\MinGW\bin;).
 
* Download [http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.6.4/python-2.6.4.msi Python 2.6.4]
 
* Run the installer and accept all the defaults.
 
 
 
* Download [http://www.scons.org/ SCons 1.20]
 
* Run the installer. It should find your Python installation, accept all defaults.
 
* Your PATH Environment Variable should contain the Python and Python scripts paths(e.g. C:\Python26;C:\Python26\Scripts;).
 
* Open a new CMD prompt by choosing START, RUN, cmd, OK.
 
* Change directories to the spot where you checked VDrift out.
 
* Now, to build VDrift, run the command:
 
tools/win/bin/build_vdrift.bat
 
 
 
==Run VDrift==
 
* Move or copy the VDrift data to a directory named data within the root VDrift directory. This can be done in a few different ways, depending on how you obtained the VDrift data. You could check it out directly here, or you could check it out in another place and use TortoiseSVN to export it to this location. If you downloaded a VDrift data archive you can extract it here, or extract it elsewhere and then move or copy the necessary files to runtime. In the end, just make sure you have a directory structure with paths like '''VDrift/data/cars/''', '''VDrift/data/tracks/''', etc.
 
* Now, to run VDrift, you just need to double-click on the file '''vdrift.exe''' within the root VDrift directory.
