    I think the default directory is C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010

    OR

    Start > All Programs > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2010

    You will find the executable in either of these locations - you can right-click on it and select 'create shortcut' to which you can drag on the desktop, if you wish

    If you are using Vista then launch the game from Games, Games Explorer

    If you are using XP, go to the SI folder in Program Files, find the .exe file , right click and create a shortcut.

    Did you install via Steam? If so you need to load up steam and click on the tab labelled "My Games" or something similar. Select FM10 and click 'Launch'.....

    That doesn't make sense, if you bought it over steam, its a steam copy. You can't install it another way

    Click the Start menu, on the right hand side of this is an option called Games. Drag the icon from there to your desktop.

    This is all covered in our FAQ.

    Microsoft Windows Vista and the “Games For Windows” scheme handles installation differently to previous versions of the Windows operating system. The game information is stored in the “Games Explorer” which is a new feature of Microsoft Windows Vista.

    It is completely normal for no game shortcuts to be placed on the Desktop or within the Start Menu.

    To find the Football Manager 2010 shortcut on Microsoft Windows Vista you need to browse to the Games Explorer.

    Because there are different versions of Vista, including Vista Home, Vista Premium, Vista Ultimate, etc, the Games Explorer may be found in different locations, this also depends on whether you're using the Classic Start Menu or not.

    The most common locations for the Windows Games Explorer include:

    1: Click “Start”
    2: Click “Games”

    Or

    1: Click “Start”
    2: Click “All Programs”
    3: Click “Games”
    4: Click “Games Explorer”

    Alternatively you can search for Games Explorer by doing the following:

    1: Click “Start”
    2: Click inside the “Search” box
    3: Type “Games Explorer”
    4: Select “Games Explorer” when it appears and it should open.

    You can also manually browse to where Football Manager 2010 is installed on your system and run the game from there. The default location is:

    C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2010

    In here you will see the game executable which is called “FM.exe” or simply “FM” if you are not viewing file extensions. You can create a shortcut to this file by right clicking the “FM.exe” file and selecting “Create Shortcut” you can then copy this shortcut to wherever you wish to move it.
