My mate has this problem where everytime he goes to open the editor he gets a message which says not well - formed (invalid token) at line 1 of default

Any help?

I can't play the game due to an XML parsing error

If you encounter the following:

Invalid Token XML parsing error

Try deleting the Settings folder from the following program path as detailed below:

First of all you need to turn on the hidden files and folders:

XP
My Computer
'Tools'
'Folder Options'.
The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
My Computer
'Organize'
'Folder and Search Options'.
The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders':

- Windows XP:

My Computer -> Local Disk (C: -> Documents and Settings -> <username> -> Application Data -> Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2010 -> Settings

- Windows Vista / Windows 7:

Computer -> Local Disk (C: -> Users -> <username> -> AppData -> Roaming -> Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2010 -> Settings

Please note saved progress may be lost.

Once deleted restart your computer and try launching the game again.

If you are unable to locate the folders please ensure that hidden folders are enabled as detailed below:

- Click on Start
- Select Control Panel
- Select Folder Options*
- Select View
- Select Show Hidden files and folders

*If Folder Options is not shown:

Windows XP/Vista : Select Classic View from the Control Panel.
Windows 7 : Select Large Icons from View By

'not well informed (invalid token) at line 1 of profile. '

It means one of your 'Profiles' has been corrupted. Shut down FM, delete the cache files and this should solve this issue (but you'll also lose stored profiles that are selectable from the drop down menu when you start a new game).

Details on how to delete your cache files can be found below.

"not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1 of last_saved_game.xml"

The game says it cannot be loaded
This can sometimes be resolved it by defragmenting the hard drive.
Open and run Disk Defragmenter by doing the following:

Windows XP

1: Click “Start”
2: Click “My Computer”
3: Right Click the local Disk that contains the FM2010 installation.
4: Go to “Tools”
5: Click “Defragment Now”
6: Click “Anylise”
7: Click “Report” – Check to see if the saved game that is not loading is listed as having missing fragments.

If it does have missing fragments then move the save to an external source (USB Memory Key, External Hard Drive) and try loading the game fro there. If the game works from the external source then running a full Defrag on the Drive should allow you to load it again. If not then your game is probably corrupted.

Windows Vista and Windows 7

1: Click “Start”
2: Click “Computer”
3: Right Click the local Disk that contains the FM2010 installation.
4: Select “Preferences”
5: Select “Tools”
6: Select “Check Disk”
7: Select “Start”

If the Save Game was showing any missing fragments then try to load the game again as Check Disk would have attempted to fix the problem. If that does not work follow the steps from Windows XP. Copy the file to an external source and attempt to run it from there. If successful defrag the Hard Disk and then try again.


I am receiving other XML errors.

First of all you need to turn on hidden files and folders.

XP:
My Computer
'Tools'
'Folder Options'.
The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
My Computer

Delete the following folder:

XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\settings

Vista:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\settings

This may solve some issues regarding the XML Errors.

Both of those are taken from the FAQ linked at the top of the screen. :thup:
