For those still having problems, exit steam or any other game launcher that has an overlay. If your graphics card program has an overlay, disable that as well. Those can have compatibility problems with older games. If that still doesn't work, go to 'gamecopyworld' and search 'lego racers'. Use one of the No CD/exe fixes. The site is safe, even if it looks a bit funny and has some annoying ads. Just be sure to use an adblocker before going there and should be a nicer experience. Good luck. Be sure to try to give as much info as possible of why it isn't running, i.e. just doesn't launch, error messages, what OS you are using, etc.

How I got running on Windows 10 64bit:
1) Mount ISO using an app like Daemon Tools or Burn to CD.
2) Right click "Setup.exe" on the CD, select properties and go to the 'Compatibility' tab.
3) Check Compatibility mode for "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)".
4) Check "Run this program as an administrator" and click "Apply" or "OK" to set.
5) Run "Setup.exe" and install to a folder outside of Program Files. Install to an alternative directory such as "C:\Games\LEGO Racers\". No need for the extra installs it suggests (don't think they run anyway).
6) Right click the shortcut or exe file for "LEGO Racers" and select the same Compatibility Settings as above.
7) Run "LEGO Racers" and enjoy gaming goodness!

LEGO Racers seems to be the most robust of the old LEGO games, compatability modes and your good to go (and tbh I don't even know wether that is needed, just did it out of habit). The game itself is one of the best, only held back by the lack of proper multiplayer (a cart-racer with only two players? Pass!). Driving physics are decent, if not as well articulated as other contemporary cart-racers. The single player cup experience is great with a nice difficulty curve. The game is relatively easy, but beating the final boss is still very statisfying. The power-ups are fun, but the speed-boosts are way too powerful for the others to matter most of the time.
Where the game really shines are the time trials, which can offer a real challenge on some tracks! If you haven't played them as child, you should try these out! Definitly worth revisiting.

Holy crap, I've never experienced that adrenaline rush of nostalgia before. I was literally smiling throughout the whole game thinking about how fun this game was for me 20 years ago (at the age of 4). Thank you so much for this!

i got a rather simple way to fix the issu with "unable to set drain message"
got to propreties, compatibility, there's a box to choose under which compatibility you wish to run the program, pick "windows xp (service pack2)" and that's it
it worked perfectly for me after that
same as monkey 2018-04-06 4 points

@Racer The 'certain video file' may be missing, try reinstalling. If the problem persists you might need compatibility mode on.
