The graphic card does not have the required shader model support, which is shader model three. A video card that supports shader model three or better is required.

I think there may be a way to delete or block the file that is causing the error so installation can complete, but this is currently unknown.

Check if you are using the latest hardware drivers, especially the chipset and video drivers.

You can use a product like Driver Genius or Radar Sync to verify you have the latest drivers and help keep all your drivers up-to-date. If you're comfortable with driver installations, you can individually find and install current drivers.
