    Check your Program Files (x86) folder under the root of c:\. Most games usually install to a folder name of the developer (Milestone in this case) rather than the name of the actual game

    Had this message Motogp13 requires more free video memory.Playing with the current configuration can cause the game to malfunction .Please try closing some background applications.The graphics card I believe is a Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000.

    What are you trying to run the game on? An Intel 3000 is several generations old, 7 years or so. And bearing in mind that Intel Chipset GPU's are not intended to run intensive games in the first place, you're going to struggle with this one even though the game itself is old.

    Have a look here on your system: Requirements Test and enter the game name and it'll check your system to see if it can run it.

    I don't know what your system is (I'm guessing it's an older i7/i5 which if that's the case isn't the problem) but, if your system is complaining about the GPU (which if it's an Intel 3000 - is built into the motherboard) I suspect you're going to need an older GPU installing separately. If the system is a circa i7 940 - 2600k/8GB etc, then I'd go for a Nvidia 680/780. It'll cost peanuts and run that game without breaking a sweat.
