    Okay.

    Could you get a copy of your dxdiag and post it here so I can take a look at it?

    It might be the case that your drivers need updating, failing that it may be a problem with the Cache files but I'll know more once I see your dxdiag.

    to get this:

    Click Start
    Click run or click in the vista search box.
    Type "dxdiag" and press return.
    Once the program has finished scanning select "save all information" and save to a place you'll remember.
    Open the .txt file and copy/paste the information into a post here.

    Cheers.

    you can download that file, put it onto a CD or USB key and take it home with you from where you do have internet access.

    You'll want to remove the command after you run the game, as otherwise it will continue to reset your preferences every time you launch.

    If you don't have a shortcut you can make one and then perform the instructions on the shortcut you've made.
    If you purchased and installed the game through Steam you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
    C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Football Manager 2009/
    If you purchased and installed the game from a boxed DVD copy you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
    C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2009/

    To stop the game freezing when going to a match - In the game go to Preferences > Display & Sound and in the 'Display Mode' section in the top left hand corner of the screen click the drop down box and select 'Windowed' then confirm your changes. Hope this helps
    just want to say thanks to gudge for finally sorting my problems out, I think it was down to changing the display mode to windowed as when i tried starting a match it still said xml.parsing error but instead of crashing the game stayed in the background and i just clicked on the ok and it hasn't done it since 'touch wood' its a shame about the problems as its a really good addictive game

    Exclamation Re: Known issues and solutions - FAQ

    I have downloaded the game 3 days ago now and still had no joy at getting it to work, I downloaded via steam as recommended and after initailly being told that my game had already been activated I managed to use the laucher application to get the game to register but now when ever I launch it through steam or directly through the fm.exe nothing happens, no errors just a process apprears in my task manager!! I have completely rmoved steam and reinstalled both that and fm and still no joy!

    I opened a ticket with steam on friday and am yet to have any useful assistance from them, is this ever going to be resolved or are si/steam goig to start offering refunds for this god awful depolyment fiasco!

    Please try the following:

    4. I'm getting a message that says: "Direct Sound error -2004287480" when entering a match.
    Potential workaround:
    - Update your sound card drivers or disable in game sound.
    - To disable sound:
    - Go to the Preferences screen ('Options' -> 'Preferences').
    - Go to the 'Display & Sound' section.
    - In the 'Sound Settings' area, deselect 'Play Sounds' and confirm your changes.
    - You should also ensure your DirectX is up to date.
    - Install the Microsoft DirectX re-distributable package from here:
    - Web Installer: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
    - Full re-distributable: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
    - Update the SoundDriver for your particular system (visit the system manufacturer website and check their support section on drivers for your particular system - See Useful Link below for common system websites)

    I'm obviously missing some files to manually delete. Can you help me out please?

    Is there any other reason why the xml parsing error would continue to show even after a full uninstallation? Also would I be able to use my old save game if I get the game to work again?

    Thanks in advance.
    You can use your saved game, just make sure you move it somewhere safe before doing a complete uninstall.

    Once again this is the advice about the XML Parsing Error from the front page:

    I can't play the game due to an XML parsing error

    If you have a shortcut on your desktop you can do the following:

    Right-click on the FM shortcut.
    Choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
    In the "Target" field, add the --reset_preferences command line option after "fm.exe", so it should look like this:
    "C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" --reset_preferences
    Press OK and then try to run the game as normal, using the shortcut.

    You'll want to remove the command after you run the game, as otherwise it will continue to reset your preferences every time you launch.

    If you don't have a shortcut you can make one and then perform the instructions on the shortcut you've made.

    If you purchased and installed the game through Steam you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
    C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Football Manager 2009/
    If you purchased and installed the game from a boxed DVD copy you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
    C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2009/
    Again give that a shot before completely uninstalling.

    If it fails then the rest of the files you are after are in the following locations:

    How to delete your Cache files

    First of all you need to turn on hidden files and folders. Go to My Computer and at the top select 'Tools' the 'Folder Options'. The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

    Windows XP:
    1. Open “My Computer”
    2. Navigate to : “Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\
    3. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder.
    4. Delete the “Football Manager 09” Folder.

    Wndows Vista:
    1. Click “Start”
    2. Click your username on the start Menu
    3. Click on “AppData” and then “Roaming”
    4. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder
    5. Delete the “Football Manager 09” Folder.

    How to Delete your Registry Files

    Windows XP:
    1. Click “Start”
    2. Click "Run"
    3. Type in "Regedit"
    4. Go into the HKEY_CURRENT_USER Folder
    5. Go into the 'Software Folder'
    6. Delete the Sports Interactive Folder
    7. Go into the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Folder
    8. Go into the 'Software Folder'
    9. Delete the Sports Interactive Ltd Folder

    Windows Vista:
    1. Click “Start”
    2. Type in the search box "Regedit"
    3. Go into the HKEY_CURRENT_USER Folder
    4. Go into the 'Software Folder'
    5. Delete the Sports Interactive Folder
    6. Go into the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Folder
    7. Go into the 'Software Folder'
    8. Delete the Sports Interactive Ltd Folder

    Other file locations:

    C:\ProgramData\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009

    And your documents folder (Has the location of your saved games).

    After going thorugh and clearing anything FM related re-install the game, apply the patch and give it another go.

    Let me know if it works for you.

    If it does fail please post your DxDiag as well with your answer.

    Cheers

    On this post it seemed your game was working you just didn't have facegen.

    It could be the case your graphics card drivers need updating if you'd like to post your dxdiag I can tell you if that is the case or not and try to find a link for you to download your drivers from.

    The other issue as I've said is something I'm looking into at the moment.

    Okay, what you suggest above would take up 2 seats of the code.

    Does that mean you've installed on 3 other machines? You can always uninstall on of those machines to get a seat back. However I've also raised this issue with the support staff that deals with this to find out how you can unregister one of the unused seats.

    Edit: If you can't do this for some reason then I can forward your code onto the Softanchor people so they can look at what might be causing a problem. You can send this to me here via PM.

    Steve,

    I wonder if it is possible to play FM2009 without having Steam running to activate it? There are points in time when access to the internet is not possible yet I still need the FM fix!

    I have looked through the threads but nothing jumps out as an answer. Thanks for you help.

    Had to buy a new laptop to play this game, annoyed at the bugs - but grateful that the forums got me up and working!

    You've got a very old graphics card. And the driver is 5 years out of date.

    After looking around the latest drivers I can find for your card are here:

    http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/x...rer300-xp.html

    These are ATI's own drivers so they are fine to download and install.

    After doing that can you try again please and see if you have any luck.

    Did you have the game running previously? If so when did it stop working?

    Sure you can.

    You can run the game by going direct to this location:

    C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamAPPS\Common\Football Manager 2009

    And using the .exe to run the game.

    You can also put steam in 'offline' mode through their tools menu and you should be able to run the game as you do while it is online.

    Let me know if this has helped.

    Thanks Steve you are a LEGEND

    Any news on a second patch, or when windowed mode will no longer be required? It squished up the stats so I have to scroll through them on the player info to see them all. Very time intensive!

    Here are the advised phone activation steps:

    1. Insert disk and run the setup (if you have autorun installed it will do so automatically).

    2. Once installed, the game will bring you to the "Soft Anchor" registration screen.

    3. You will be prompted to enter the keycode on the back of your manual. This can be difficult to read if there are many "0" and "O" in the code. Before entering if possible visit the http://keylookup.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com/ site. Here you can enter the code as you see it and the website will display the full code in a format that enables you to determine 0's from O's.

    4. On the soft anchor screen, there is text space split into 4 sections. Type the 25 digit code in full with no space in here. Please note that it is VITAL that you ENTER THE CODE IN CAPITALS.

    5. Underneath the text space, there will be the option of "online" or "phone". Choose "phone" and select next.

    6. Here you will be given a number for your particular country after an "are you sure you want to activate by phone message".

    7. On the same screen you will be given a 16 digit numerical code. Once you ring the number, this is the code you must enter when prompted.

    8. Enter the 16 digit code, once confirmed you will be given a 7 digit response code consisting of numbers and letters.

    9. Enter the response code when prompted, and you will be given a new 16 digit code. This process will repeat about 4 times (ie. 16 numerical code, response code, 16 numerical code, response code, 16 numerical code, response code, 16 numerical code, response code).

    10. If, after three 16 digit codes and three response codes the process stops, it means that you probably entered your intial 25 digit key code in incorrectly. Again - re-enter the 25 digit code IN CAPITALS.

    11. Once the final response code is entered correctly, a small box will appear with "Auth Key" at the bottom left of the Soft Anchor page.

    12. You will then be prompted with three seven digit codes to complete the authentication. Once the first auth code is entered correctly a second box appears beside it, and then once the second auth code is populated a third box appears. Put in the final code and the authentication is complete. A message will appear to confirm this.

    13. Start the game as normal by double clicking the icon on your desktop or in your C/Program files.
    If you're having trouble with this or can't see the phone activation option please let me know.

    So the game was working fine and then stopped working.

    Did anything change to make the game stop working? Did you change any settings on your machine?

    It's still worth updating your graphics card drivers and trying to run the game again.

    Okay so you're trying to run the game through steam.

    That's an error with the steam software not the FM software. Have you tried to uninstall it or done anything else to the software?

    Hi.

    Can you try this please:

    1. Right-click the FM icon on your desktop & click on "properties"
    2. In the "target" field in the dialogue box that opens, add "-windowed -small_screen" at the end of the target, making sure there's a space in between.
    So it should read like this: "C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" -windowed -small_screen
    3. Save your changes & you'll be able to play FM in window mode next time you run FM

    I installed the game and I click the FM09 and I get


    This application has failed to start because d3dx9_37.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


    What do I do?

    It might be the case that your drivers need updating, failing that it may be a problem with the Cache files but I'll know more once I see your dxdiag.

    to get this:

    Click Start
    Click run or click in the vista search box.
    Type "dxdiag" and press return.
    Once the program has finished scanning select "save all information" and save to a place you'll remember.
    Open the .txt file and copy/paste the information into a post here.

    Cheers.
    Steve, the board won't let me post a message with more than 4000 characters and the dxdiag is over 5000. Can i edit it or do you need the full thing? If you need the lot can i send it to you some other way, pm or e-mail maybe?

    Thanks

    I don't understand what that means lol.
    So, the driver is now not installing on your system?

    That is the correct driver for the Radeon 7500. I'm not sure why it wouldn't be installing.

    It might be an idea to contact AMD Customer support over it.

    This is their interactive support page:
    http://www.amd-firefly.com/firefly20...oadTemplateID=

    If that fails you can contact them here:

    Sorry you're having so much trouble.

    Which FM.exe?

    You haven't copied the .exe to the desktop have you? You should copy it back into the game folder and make a shortcut instead of copying the entire .exe if you have.

    Do you have 9.1.0 installed?

    Hi there. I had a load of problems trying to install the game when it came out.
    I was told it was because of my graphics card or something. He told me to check back here in a week to see if you'd come up with a solution, and what i'd have to do.
    I've typed "dxdiag" into Run like the guy told me a week ago, and in the device bit it says:
    Name: SiS
    Chip Type: SiS 661FX Rev 01
    Approx. Total Memory: 64.0 MB

    What do I do now to get going? Is my PC good enough?????

    After a succesful install when i try and run the game i get:

    " Football Manager has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution becomes available".

    I am running on Windows Vista.

    Any ideas anyone??

    Cheers

    Hi Steve - so i'm on my second copy of the game - after changing one disc as it wasn't working... and my laptop still simply will not read the disc. I've tried it on another computer and it works (although the first one didn't) but it just makes noises and nothing shows up on the dvd drive in my computer. It's a pretty decent laptop and works with all other dvds... Have I just wasted £30 or is there anything i can try? It's not scratched - although the first one wierdly was...

    I've also tried using a lense cleaner but made no difference. Bought it at GAME

    Cheers

    Hey steve, my game crashes all the time, and I've updated my drivers. Offcourse I have the patched version. I've also played in windowed mode, and it's freezing also. I always have to reset my computer. It's only happening when I play a match. Here's my dxdiag. Can you check please why it doesn't work? I can play fluently games like fallout 3, dead space, fifa 09, .... but it only crashes with fm 09. I cannot play a game like that. Thanks.

    FOOTBALL MANAGER 09 – FAQ GUIDE

    Please read the information below, the suggestions have been confirmed as fixing the issues you are experiencing.


    I own a MAC – what’s the problem?

    Mac users have nothing to worry about there is no activation on the game for MAC users, just the normal disc check. Mac Book Air users will need an external Optical drive in order to play – we are currently looking into options for this.

    ALL USERS PLEASE DO THIS FIRST

    Please check the ‘Football_Manager_2009_InstallLog.log’ located in ‘C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009’ and report any errors. If you do have errors can you please also report where you purchased the game from.

    When I try to activate, it says I'm not connected to the internet / other activation problems

    We have created a small activator script that should help anybody having trouble activating the game online.

    Step 1 – Download the activator from http://www.footballmanager.com/fixv2.zip

    Step 2 – Unzip the contents of the activator to your desktop.

    Step 3 – Double click the activate.vbs file. Note the screen shot below.



    Step 4 – Next you will see a dialog box prompting you for your license key.



    Step 5 – Enter your license key into the dialog. Remember – to check your key at http://keycheck.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com

    Step 6 – Press OK - then wait 30-60 seconds and you will receive a second message. If you are successful – the message will read:



    If you get this message, open the game and run it.

    If the activation fails, the message will read something like:



    The number in this message will help us understand the problem. For example, In this case the number -1003 indicates that your license key. If the error is -1003 enter your license key into the form at: http://keycheck.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com

    If it is something besides -1003, please send Muzchap or JMordetsky a PM and they will do their best to help!


    I’m receiving the Error [-10] what can I do?

    Fix: The error 10 is related to not being able see the server correctly; this could be due to a firewall blockage or ‘proxy’ issue. We are investigating further, but do have a workaround – please can you call one of the Customer Services numbers below and an Operator will talk you through activation:

    Note: If the above does not fix it – please check the following:

    • Also check that C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sports Interactive and C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009 Certificate are not set to read only!

    To check if a file or folder is read only, please right click the folder and select ‘Properties’ from the dropdown, you should the see a box at the bottom called Attributes – please ensure this is unticked or does not have a green square inside.
    • Another way it could happen is if there is another instance of FM.exe or Activator.exe holding onto our certificate. In this case - the user should check the process list to see if another instance of FM.exe is open. If so - close it first.

    To do this you need to open Task Manager (right click TaskBar, or CTRL+ALT+DEL), sort the Image Name column by clicking on it and identifying if Activator.exe or FM.exe are running. If they are highlight and click ‘End Task’


    You launch the game via Steam and nothing happens

    You are receiving the error: ‘FM2009 could not run as ‘facegen’ was unable to initialize!’
    Fix: Please install the Patch, and ensure your graphics drivers are up to date
    You are receiving the error: ‘This application has failed to start because saAuditMD.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem
    Fix: Please download the file from here and place in the following folder: C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009
    http://downloads.sigames.com/download/saAuditMD.zip


    I can't play the game due to an XML parsing error

    If you have a shortcut on your desktop you can do the following:
    • Right-click on the FM shortcut.
    • Choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
    • In the "Target" field, add the --reset_preferences command line option after "fm.exe", so it should look like this:
      "C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" --reset_preferences
    • Press OK and then try to run the game as normal, using the shortcut.

    You'll want to remove the command after you run the game, as otherwise it will continue to reset your preferences every time you launch.

    If you don't have a shortcut you can make one and then perform the instructions on the shortcut you've made.
    • If you purchased and installed the game through Steam you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
      C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Football Manager 2009/
    • If you purchased and installed the game from a boxed DVD copy you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
      C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2009/


    Temporary fixes for users having their game freezing

    One solution to this is playing the game in Windowed Mode. Instructions on how to setup the game in windowed mode can be found in another thread:

    Another solution could be to turn off stadiums and shadows.

    I've just trolled through 27 pages with this question asked several times, and it has been completely ignored by everyone at SI....

    I have downloaded the activator and the launcher because I received the could not connect to the internet error, i put my serial in that and it says completed please launch the game etc, I try launch the game and im faced with the activation box again saying my trial period has expired.

    Now is anyone at SI going to respond to this? we the customers paid alot of money for a game we should have no problems installing or playing, but having a problem and been completely ignored is a complete disgrace to be quite frank.

    quite simply... how do we fix this error? if you don't know... just say, ignoring customers is not how you get repeat custom.

    Hi,

    I get exactly the same problem as Burke, with the game crashing on 27th August 2009. Did Gudge find out a solution to the problem? Should I upload my savegame too?

    Any help greatly appreciated. Much love.

    I'm getting a message when trying to start FM I get this message XML Parsing error! not-well formed (invalid token) at line 1 of config.xml. I have win xp pro. I have a disc, installed through steam. I tried the shortcut thing --reset preference and I deleted the settings folder in application data and then the whole fm 2009 folder.

    What do I need to do to get the game to work?

    That is simply what Windows does when it cannot receive a response from an application. My guess is that this comes up for you when the game is processing (fixtures or dates) and simply means that FM is busy spending all of it's time running the game instead of responding to Windows. I get it every now and again, and have done for all versions of FM/CM - as I always play in windowed mode.

    Given that this really isn't effecting your game, i don't really see how this is a bug and should warrant such posts?

    As far as I am aware there are three "solutions" to this "bug".

    1 - there's a preference for "processing speed" or something similar with settings such as "fastest (less responsive)" "fast" etc etc.. try turning this down if you want your game/pc to be more 'responsive'.... but do remember that this will adversely affect the time taken to process events/fixtures
    2 - select fewer active leagues
    3 - purchase a better computer

    With the whole activation thing... if I format and re install FM on the same computer do I still have all 4 other activations available or does it use one?

    As far as I am aware you need to properly uninstall FM and deactivate if before reformatting or else you will lose one of your activations.

    As far as i can tell from the forums, for those with the disk copy of FM, this currently works; but those (like myself) who installed via steam are still waiting for a deactivation URL to go live before we can deactivate our games.

    Hope this helps

    I am trying to install the patch for WWSM09 from the sega Download 1.

    I keep getting a Windows Security Warning that it has found a problem with the file.

    It will not let me install b/c it says the file does not have a "digital signature."

    Any help getting past this issue would be appreciated.

    I have a digital signature issue and i still can't install the patch. I have tried doing what was suggested below but it didn't work.

    do I have to uninstall my game and use steam to get the patch or can someone tell me an easy way to install the patch from a direct download as none of them work.

    cheers

    To stop the game freezing when going to a match - In the game go to Preferences > Display & Sound and in the 'Display Mode' section in the top left hand corner of the screen click the drop down box and select 'Windowed' then confirm your changes. Hope this helps
    Gudge,

    I downloaded the patch and that DirectX thingy and still my game continue to freeze when going into a match till I saw your posting. I went to the Display & Sound and select 'Windowed' and now my game is up and running. Thanks! I hope my game will be fine from now on.

    ... and one more thing, can you tell your bosses in SI for the next FM2010, please have it working right out of the box and have a more easier activation code process. The activation exercise was really a painful affair.

    Thanks again for your tip.

    Regards from Malaysia.

    Once again this is the advice about the XML Parsing Error from the front page:



    Again give that a shot before completely uninstalling.

    If it fails then the rest of the files you are after are in the following locations:

    And your documents folder (Has the location of your saved games).

    After going thorugh and clearing anything FM related re-install the game, apply the patch and give it another go.

    Let me know if it works for you.

    If it does fail please post your DxDiag as well with your answer.

    Cheers
    Hi Steve. Progress has been made! The xml parsing errors are gone and I can start a new game.

    However when I try to load my old game, a "This game could not be loaded" message comes up and FM shuts down. When I click it again it says "FM09 is already running" and I have to restart to get it to work.

    Any suggestions as to how I can play my old game as I'm already 3 eventful seasons in?

    Thanks again.

    Hi Mark

    I have purchased FM09 via Steam. All working ok until I submit the team prior to the match engine starting. Then it just freezes with the 'football cursor' showing. Have left it for some time but it does not progress. My PC spec is 1.66GHz; 2GB RAM; Core 2Duo; so should not be a machine issue...any ideas pls?

    Thanks

    HI,

    Sorry if this has been dealt with before but I've read through so many pages of forums and I really should at work ;)

    Anyway, I bought the game just normally on disk and didn't download it or anything and every time I've tried to play it it just randomy crashes. Sometimes it's when I'm trying to do my first match, sometimes it's just randomly, I've still never even managed to play a game yet. I don't get any error messages or warning or pop ups or anything it just sit there. My laptop is only a year old but I know nothing at all about computers so I'm worried I won't be able to do anything about it. I've had every other game and never had a problem.

    Sorry if this is repeated.

    Thanks

    Chip Type: SiS 661FX Rev 01
    Approx. Total Memory: 64.0 MB

    What do I do now to get going? Is my PC good enough?????
    Hi wolvesfansam.

    We're still having big problems with SiS graphics cards. Any news on this will be posted on the forums.

    Hi Oli'G'.

    Have you thought about downloading the game through Steam to sidestep the whole DVD drive issue?

    Hi bhoychucky.

    You can download the patch to any location. As for the game speed, what kind of spec are you running on? Do you have antivirus software running?

    I suggest contacting SEGA Customer Support as they deal with activation issues.
