    Default Strawberry Demo for Mac not working

    Hello everybody,

    I've just downloaded the Strawberry Demo for Mac of FM 2010, but it don't install anything.

    The file I downloaded by BitTorrent is named "Setup FM2010 Demo.app", and I double-clicked it but nothing seems to happen.

    Anyone can help me?

    Thank you in advance.

    How big was the file?

    Watch your dock when you double click, does anything happen?

    Open your console (use spotlight and search for "Console") and see if anything is showing there.

    I can't install on my Mac as I don't have write permissions for the volume, even though I am the admin and have read and write permissions.

    Good start as usual SI. Not.

    That's strange, Pawel. Where are you trying to install it exactly?

    If you bring up the "info" for the folder you're trying to install it in, does it show you as having read/write permissions?

    I couldn't even download Strawberry version for my MAC. Because there's only torrent link available and I do not have torrent.

    There's a link to several mirrors. The US mirror is incorrect at the moment, don't use it. Germany 1 and the Dutch link are slow as hell, but they work.

    Yeah, the file on some of the mirrors is incorrect. Should be almost a 1GB file, not 220MB.

    Same prob for me, I think it's because with SIs installer it's not allowing the prompt from os x for your password when you install things into the apps folder. What I did was install it to a portable HDD and then copy the folder into my applications folder and it'll ask you for your password and that's it, should be working fine!

    US mirror is broken and it's the fastest one, but german and dutch links are extremely slow. Dont we have any other link where we can download it from?

    Could anybody who is unable to get the installer working attempt this and let me know if it works for you please, it looks to be a permissions issue as Donkeywong alludes to

    Outside possibility here but if you try moving the installer to your 'Applications' folder and trying from there do you get any luck?

    Glad you've got it working Steve, apologies again for the trouble, enjoy the game

    Any other users who are having this issue if you are unable to try using an external HD can you tell me if you are using an admin account on your machine?

    I've installed it on my macbook, and it runs absolutely perfectly.

    Only problem is every now and then the game crashes during a match.

    Rather than using the autoinstaller I used the setup button on the disk.

    I've downloaded the demo and installed it without any problems.

    But when i click on the fm icon i get this message "You can't open the application "fm" because it is not supported on this architecture."

    I didn't have any problems (apart from the 3D graphics) running the 09 on my mac.
    Are my specs just to low or is there any chance of resolving this?

    Thanks!

    Am currently downloading the strawberry from Torrent. The vanilla worked like a charm yesterday!


    One "major" bug though.. Whenever i go from the start screen to preferences and change some settings, then when I press either cancel or confirm it brings me to the credits screen?? pressing the back button in the top left corner takes me back to the main however =)

    I'll post my findings on if strawberry installs in a moment

    I thought as much.
    But since 09 worked fine and the specs for 10 wasn't supposed to be higher i was kind of hoping it'd work.

    But no chance then huh?

    Thanks for your help!

    I've had no freezes, crashes or pauses yet in game.

    The 3d match engine is slightly jittery though, but that it all so far.

    Your graphics card is quite a way below minimum spec, have you tried disabling the 3D cameras and trying?

    I'd imagine the problem here is your graphis card is below the requirements. Way below

    It´s the same problem, I can not get to install, and I don´t have a external HD. I have a macbook pro 13´Intel Core 2 Duo 2, 53 ghz, with 4 gb ram3 and a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M card. And i have snow leopard
    I spoke with apple, and they said that it might be a problem by SI, because the specifications are not updatet to snow leopard?

    No, i dont have a external HD. But a memory stick, i guess its the same. What is the method?

    But I don't think that will help. My installer do open, but it freeze when it install "..uninstall Football Manager 2010 demo". It's just the installer who freeze. The rest of the mac works perfect.
    I had the same problem when installing FM09.

    Have you tried installing with the setup from the disc rather than the autoinstaller like Grasu did further up the page?

    Right, I just installed the Strawberry version on my 1st gen. Macbook (1.8 ghz intel duo, 1gb ram) Running OSX Tiger. Everything seems to work the same as with Vanilla. No problems whatsoever (aside from not running 3D, turn off in your preferences before going to a match)

    Hope this info will help anyone =)

    You guys need to be a little more specific than the demo installer "freezes at blah blah" lol. That doesn't help much!

    Birke1 If there are 'Sports Interactive' folders in these locations you should try deleting them and then attempting to reinstall:

    So I hate to pile on the issues, and this one is probably already being worked on, but I can't download the Strawberry version from the US Worthplaying mirror (the one that eventually takes you to FileFront). It appears something is wrong with the file on the mirror, because it is only 217 MB, and when I download it, as it gets close to finishing it says the file is corrupt and probably won't unzip (it won't). Thanks for all your work guys. Vanilla demo is great so far!

    Thanks gustieguy, we've been chasing that one up. There are other mirrors and links in the announcements thread which I haven't heard any complaints about yet so i'd give them a go

    Okei, I'll try.

    I've found a old tread(FM09) about my problem. LINK
    I've done what they say I should do, but it doesn't work. I think it's because I have 32-bit system, and the Jave SE 6 is 64-bit. What do you think?

    Thank you to all, but any solution given have worked for me. I tried the external HD/Memory Stick solution, but it's the same result as trying to install from my HD. I double-click the installer but nothing happens, no icon in the dock and no response on the console.

    I hava an iMac with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor at 2.16 GHz, 2 GB SDRAM, the graphic card is an ATI Radeon 1600 with 250 MB VRAM and I'm running Snow Leopard.

    I didn't have any issue with FM09 so I hope it's only a problem of the demo.

    Sorry to hear that Aist, you're the first person the external HD method hasn't worked for. I'll do a bit more investigating and get back to you

    Thank you for the support Antpocolypsenow, but it seems to work now. Previosly I put the installer in an external HD that is formatted with MACOS, but I tried putting it in another HD that is formatted as FAT32 (Windows format) and it worked, it's installed and running. So it seems that it's a problem of the disk file format.

    Thank you very much for the support, you're great guys!

    Is there any rapidshare link for Strawberry edition for Mac? Because there's one for PC.

    By the way, American mirror is still broken. I tried to download few times from there, it gets to %90 and then fails.

    The Vanilla Demo installer works, the Strawberry installer don't... it was the same with FM 2009 Demos.
    I remember it was the java installer that was the problem and I had to change my current version of java.
    This time I've tried to change to other java versions but no luck this time.

    I've also tried to install Strawberry on a network drive and on a USB disc (fat32) as suggested, neither worked out.


    Macbook (2gb ram, X3100 graphic) with Mac OS X 10.5.8

    java versions on my system:
    j2se 5.0 32 bit (default)
    j2se 5.0 64 bit
    j2se 1.4.2 32 bit
    java SE 6 64 bit

    That is the same problem as I have!

    Think its the same Macbook to.


    EDIT:
    The vanilla demo works perfectly. The Vanilla installer doesn't freeze on "install '..uninstalling football manager 2010 demo' " But the strawberry does.

    Got the exact problem as a couple of people above - the installer won't start. Have tried various mirrors, and also using an external HD but nothing seems to help. I'm on a MacBook Pro, Snow Leopard with a 2.4Ghz processor. It's a shame really.

    I have the same exact problem with the others. i have a macbook 4.2 version with a 2.4ghz processor and snow leopard, but the installer didn't start at all. I moved the gold demo installer to another macbook pro to a friend of mine. he opened it somehow. then i tried it with the same flash disk, and now it's working..

    Copying the installer into my external HD worked well as advised.
    I almost gave up trying the game and eventually order. >_<
    Please post that warning (must install from external HD/ storage) on the download website as soon as possible.

    I was having the same issue with permissions whilst installing. To fix it I changed the install location from the default (an existing Sports Interactive subfolder) to the root of the Applications folder.

    I'm running Mac OSX 10.4.11 on an intel macbook pro, have downloaded the Strawberry version from BitTorrent and seem to be having the same problem as you guys. I have tried deleting old SI folders from the places suggested here (there are none left on my system). I have tried running the installer from an external Hard_Drive (a big mac formatted one and a FAT formatted USB drive) with no success. I have also tried running the installer from both the Desktop and the Applications folder.

    Same result every time: the installer starts up for a few seconds (you see it bouncing in the doc) but then it "quits unexpectedly".

    Any help greatly appreciated on this one guys. Although my productivity is going to hit i's usual yearly low once I've worked this out!

    *** Just got this message by running the installer alongside terminal, don't know if it might help you clever people:

    Tried all of the above. Nothing seems to fix the issue though. Somehow I still doubt the problem is on my end, because I've never experienced any difficulties in the past regarding the installation of applications, programs and games. Would it be fair to say Mac users are neglected by SI? I'd really like to try to demo, any news on what this might be?
