    The product key from the manual. You would have had to activate it initially anyway, so wherever you got it from first time round.

    Oh dear mate, that sounds frustrating. I think there's an FAQ or known issues thread around near the top of the forum that may be worth a look.

    Are you trying to run it through Steam?

    I've installed though Steam, do I have to run the game through Steam each time I want to play?
    No you don't, you can create a shortcut to Football Manager 2009 without having to use Steam. Go to:
    C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Football Manager 2009\
    and right click the fm.exe file and choose "send to desktop (create shortcut)"

    Sorry to hijack this thread but I didnt want to start a new one just for this.

    How come I didnt have to use my key? I just installed the game and Ive never been asked for my activation key ever?

    Im on a Mac if that makes any difference.

    MACs don't need the key, just the disc in the drive.
