    Unfortunately, I'm unable to enlighten you on that matter.

    I think the instructions are thorough enough for you to be able to perform them without any problems

    For the last 2 days, I have been getting this message right after the 'Let's kick racism out of football' screen:
    "Football Manager 2009 is running dangerously low on memory. Please quit and free up some memory."

    So now I can't play the game. I'd like to know what I should do about that.
    Thanks in advance.

    Can anyone help? I'm about to smash this CD to pieces unless I can get this game to work.

    I won't bore you with all the history but suffice to say I've tried loads of the suggestions in these threads to get my game working, without any luck. I've been directed to use fix below to get my problem sorted

    http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=65715.

    However when I get to step 5 of the suggested solution I get the following error.

    "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click quit, the application will close immediately
    An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B)

    Somehwere I read that this is because the fix isn't for x64 versions of vista.

    Can anyone help me as I'm gutted that I can't play my game.

    I am getting Error code: -1073741811. The game was working perfectly well ...but I haven't used it for maybe 2 months . Now, when I come back ...I get this ... this STEAM thing is absolutely the worst thing FM have ever done . I will seriously consider whteher I will ever buy future versions of this game .

    How can I resolve this ridiculous problem ... why can't I just run it from the disc as I always have before ...downloading updates as and when I choose too ?????

    Having been surprised to have been asked yet again for my Activation Code. Having then checked it on the SI site and then downloaded the 'problem solving' zip file ..I find I am STILL unable to run this game ...as I had done, without problems, after again following ludicrously complicated and singularly inefficient processes at the outset.

    Dreadful !

    All of these problems to get a game WE BOUGHT to work on our machines... makes a good case for piracy doesn't it!?!
    How many long term FMers are being turned away by buggy games that, after two patches still aren't playing right (and having experienced repeated problems occuring with EVERY release only becoming properly playable by around March, not bad for a game bought in october/ november)
    And then are smacked in the face with hurdles of technical problems far beyond casual users who just want to put the game they PAID for into the machines they OWN and use it.

    In any other walk of life you would be out of buisness... imagine buying a car that you can't get into just in case someone might have stolen it from the garage forecourt. And then having to wait for the passenger seat to be installed some 6 months after buying it. How long would that company last???
    Or a supermarket that allows you to pay for your eggs but then puts a lock on them that you may or may not be able to get into depending on your level of technical expertise or LUCK?

    This release is the straw that broke the camels back.
    until SI release games that install with no problems and don't expect PURCHASERS to do bug testing for 6 months (and since CM4 i have had, i think 1 case of a smooth install) i can't imagine coming back to FM again.

    How about this SI, take a break for a year, no release for 2010. Get 2011 working soundly, test it properly. Stop taking money for products that a lot of people can't use and then can't get rid of. Maybe then FM will be worth all the hassle, because although these forums are a great help i have had enough of checking here, there and everywhere just to get a game i OWN to run with stability or even at all. cos with '09 it has not been worth it.

    Any other management games worthy of a look out there?

    i have just bought a laptop as my computer broke which had fm 2009 on it but now when i try to play and activate it i get the cannot connect to the internet.

    i have tried downloading all the launchers but they dont work and when i try the following i have to enter a password on the softanchor site and i try the trial version but it never works:

    Fix:
    1) Open IE and go to: https://fm2009.sa01.softanchorinsight.com

    2) Here if you are using IE7 it will prompt you – “There is a problem with this website’s security certificate.”

    3) Next, Click – “Continue to this website (not recommended)”. However – this is okay, it is safe.

    4) Look up top at your IE address bar – you will see “Certificate Error”. Click this box, then click “View Certificates”.

    5) Press, “Install Certificate…”

    6) Select the “Place all certificates in the following store”.

    7) Press “Browse”

    8) Select “Trusted Root Certificate Authorities”. Not this will install the Go Daddy (a reputable) certificate into your trusted root certificate authorities if it is not there.

    9) Press OK

    10) Press Next

    11) Press Finish

    Close IE, then Reopen it and to go to https://fm2009.sa01.softanchorinsight.com. Note: on this visit, you will be allowed without trouble.


    From here –

    1) Reopen your FM2009 game
    2) Enter your key into the Activation Dialog
    3) Select the “Online” activation
    4) Press Next

    You game should activate immediately.

    any suggestions

    I don't think deleting your saved games was the solution. Have you tried all the xml fixes in this thread? As in deleting your cache files and/or using the reset preferences tag on the target of the shortcut?

    I finally plucked up the courage to purchase FM '09 after hearing about the trouble people have had just trying to get activated. I wish I hadn't bothered because I can't even begin installing it. A box pops up saying...

    Installer User Interface Mode Not Supplied
    Unable to load and prepare the installer in GUI mode


    Any ideas please? I'm on my 15th season on FM '07 and i'm bored of it now!

    How to Update your Graphics Drivers

    This depends on your graphics drivers.

    Some Computer manufacturers insist you download drivers from their own sites. Please refer to the website of your computer manufacturer before reporting issues with graphics drivers.

    Here are the websites of the largest graphics cards and chipset manufacturers:

    Nvidia (Gforce/Legacy)
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

    ATI (Radeon)
    http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

    Intel (Onboard Chipsets)
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

    There are other manufacturers of graphics card drivers. If you can not find drivers for these cards they may have been discontinued. Please ask in this case as we may still be able to help.

    Hopefully that helps.

    Try this:

    My computer will not read my DVD disc

    You can download the game in Steam without using the disc using the game code you have from your purchased game.

    Download Steam from here - http://store.steampowered.com/about/
    Install Steam on your computer
    Once installed, open up Steam
    Go to My Games
    Go to Activate a product on Steam
    Enter your Activation Code found on the back of the manual. (Use http://keylookup.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com/ to see you got all the 0's and o's right)
    Steam should now download your game.

    Hi everybody.

    I have a problem when running FM 2009, more concretely when it comes to play a match. Once I send my lineup and a general message to the team (i.e. relax and enjoy the game), I click the next button in order to go to the match. The problem is that at this stage my computer gets frozen with the following message: "simulating the game". I can even hear the atmosphere sound in the stadium or the referee's whistles but after 5 or even 10 minutes the screen does not change and the same message appears on screen.

    Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    I run the game on a black macbook 2ghz intel core 2 duo with 2Gb RAM.

    Many thanks in advance for your help,

    cheers.

    David Villa.

    Cam someone PLEASE take a look at the thread I have started titled "crashes when loading" ? Its on the General discussion area & as you will see, I have tried several things to get my game working again. Its a problem with a Parsing error which despite trying several things, including uninstalling my disc version & downloading the game from Steam, I am STILL having the same problem. I have bought every FM since 2005 & have never had this kind of problem. Worse still, I cant seem to get it fixed. I can only think that there must be SOMETHING that I should have deleted when I uninstalled the disc version? Do you think that I should delete the 9.02 patch as well? Would this help?

    Cheers
    Windowed mode is running the game not in full screen so you can see the taskbar and start button at the bottom and title bar at the top.

    It seems to reduce and to a degree stop the amount of crashes that happen in full screen mode.

    To enable windowed mode, go to display and sound preferences and for display choose windowed mode.

    Let me know if you have any problems doing that.

    Where's the url wuere you can find how many activations you have left? It was in a sticky somewhere, but I can't find it...

    I know you can have 5 simultaneous activation and I wanted to know many I have (not sure if it's installed in 3 or 4 pcs...)

    Thanks.

    I have tried this with same result...frozen computer. The "error message" I get (it isn't a proper one but just the last this it appears before getting frozen) is match window, setting up match, please wait... I have waited for around 10 min as maximum and guess it would be absurd to wait more..

    thanks for ur help.

    Played the game a few days ago and the match day sound was fine, played yesterday and the sound has completely gone.

    When i go on preferences before the match the 'play sounds' box is ticked but during the match it is unticked. When i try to tick it the game crashes.

    Sound card drive and direct x are up to date btw. Latest patch installed as well.

    Any advice?

    FM was been working fine for me recently, got the game boxed and patched up.

    Tried to run it just now and it asks for my activation code, so I type it in and it says;

    'It would appear what you have attempted to enter is not a valid unlock key. To purchase an unlock key, please visit: www.sigames.com'

    This is the same one I used when I first activated it online, and I used the key code converter thing both times..

    HELP!!

    At the top of the screen you should see links to them. You want the 9.2.0 one as that is the latest.

    This doesnt belong here but i didnt want to start a new thread and im sure someone can answer my question here.
    What year does the game go up to? I've seen people on around year 2030, i myself havent been past 2018 and im just wondering is there ever a point where you cant go any further?

    Default crash dump - 1 time each day we play

    Hello. I've been playing online with some friends, we are now on august 29, 2010 but we decided to stop playing because of the crashes. My crash dump directory if full of reports :S

    We play the argentinian premier and secondary leagues (not moving the tv games). Its really weird that the game usually crashes when we are playing for the first time in that day the premier league matches, i think it has never crashed when the secondary league or cups matches are been played. After we get a crash dump i restart the game and we play for 3 or 4 hours with no crashes. Next day we decide to play, same thing happeneds.

    Its driving us crazy. I have reinstalled the game and even tested the saved game in another computer, but it also crashed. What can we do?

    The problem does sound odd. Do other save games behave like this?

    yes. Its really odd. Look, before the firts division matches starts on sundays i save the game, we start the matches, sometimes right away it crashes, sometime when we are finishing the matches, but then a open my fm again, i load that saved game, they connect again and we play crash free for some hours. I've try in my laptop so i can say is not my computer, we have played without some of my friends and it also crashed, so i dont think the problem is anyone of them. But im not sure. Can my crash reports be usefull to solve the problem?

    They could be. It is best getting on to one of the SI testing team or someone else from SI. They might be able to figure out what is going wrong.

    I downloaded and installed 9.2.0 patch for Mac but no success when clicking into play match...same window appears, setting up match. The only thing that has changed is that now it does not appear please wait...not a big improvement as you can see.

    Is this something frequent in Macs? I have some other friends who run it with the same computer as me and the find no problems at all.

    What could I do now?

    Thanks

    Still using FM 2008 btw

    Get this message when i click on the icon on my desktop.

    No disc inserted.
    Please insert the original "Football Manager 2008 SKU01 - UK English" CD/DVD.
    Please have a look at http://www.securom.com/message.asp?m=nodisc for further, more detailed information.

    When I try what it tells me to do on that site, I get the message "dla" is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Nothing on that website helped, unfortunately. Anyone know what the problem is?

    You see the links at the top of the page? Click the 9.2.0 one depending on whether you want mac/pc or wwsm/fm and download it. Then just double click on it to install it.

    I have no idea why you ae getting cannot find server. What web browser you using?

    You can find out the directx by checking your dxdiag. Instuctions are in the link I provided above.

    To find out you have the .NET Framework, check your what you have in your add/remove programs facility in the control panel.

    You dont have the 3.5 .NET Framework so try downloading that. Also make sure you try as many things as possible in that thread I linked and also in this one. I am sorry I cannot help more but I am just too tired. I don't know about where you are but it is 3am here so I need sleep. I will probably have a look sometime tomorrow to see how you got on.
