    Small one, but anyway: I have to check the "Use 32 bit executables on 64 bit capable operating systems" even though I'm running on a 32 bit OS, otherwise the game won't launch. Maybe the text should say just "Use 32 bit executables" and the check box be checked (and possibly even grayed out) automatically if it's a 32 bit OS?

    Windows XP :(


    RECOMMENDED MINIMUMS (will run well, may look better with better hardware):
    CPU: 3.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or 3.0 GHz AMD Athlon II x2 or better
    Memory: 4 GB+
    Video Card: nVidia 250 GTS or ATI/AMD 4870 or better
    Video Memory: 512MB+
    Operating System: PC Microsoft Windows Vista 64bit, Windows 7 64bit
    Storage: 4 GB+Notes:
    1 – 2008 C++ Runtimes SP1 required (included with installer).
    2 – rFactor 2 executable is 32bit. 64bit OS recommended above to allow more than 4GB RAM.

    I found this from Jeremy`s tweets:

    This upcoming build MAY be the last one officially supported on XP
