I downloaded and installed Farming Simulator 2013 last Saturday. However, after inserting the Product Key (presumably this is the activation code received via email?) as requested when first running the game, a message box with the following appeared: 'Error: Could not init 3d system. Shader Model3.0 is required. Please install the latest video drivers.' (So basically I have not been able to play the game yet - when I tried to access the game again it just displayed the same message box). Are there any software updates / settings that can be applied to resolve this problem?
