The most common fix for the game failing to launch is that you need to verify your skin cache. To do so, right click on the FM icon and then select properties > local files > verify integrity of game cache.

Then you should update your DirectX, download and install from the following link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

This should solve the issue.

Here's a new link - http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html

And yes, this should be in the technical issues forum but it probably wont get moved.
