FM 2006 not working on windows 10 has anyone figured out how to fix this problem?

ive seen other threads on this from many years ago but with no fix?

ive searched everywhere on so many sites ive tried compatibility modes but all i keep getting at most is the game trying to work but then nothing.

i would appreciate any help possible on this matter as i love abit of nostalgic game play from time to time.

much appreciated for any of your advice and efforts in advance thank you.

First guess is that the game is just simply too old.  Have to hang fire til after the weekend when (hopefully) someone from SI would be able to confirm for sure..  06 is stretching it a bit though, considering developments in tech between then n now..

There is considerable evidence to suggest that the way that W10 now handles DRM issues, will make older games difficult and sometimes impossible to run on a new OS.  There is no magic formula although some users have managed it using trial and error but I suspect that it has proved impossible for most.

I still play FM2006 on Windows 10. But, I don't think I can post how I got it running without breaking the rules of the forum. 

Send a PM to the OP.

Hey guys, I'll send you all a PM when I get a spare minute. I'm currently in hospital with a newborn baby, so it's a bit hard to share the details right now. 

Hi, can you please let me know how you have got FM06 working? If you can pm me please? I have installed the game but it won't launch

What is it with FM2006 suddenly being the hot **** again? Maybe I should try this too again... please OP include me in the PMs as well :) 

Fm2005 - 2008 were a total different era. With FM2008 being the best of it, before FM2009 was introduced with 3D, etc. Its also some form of nostalgia. Kuyt, Vlaar, Robben, Bergkamp, Stam, Kluivert, etc etc etc all were still playing. Not to mention players, like Mika Aaritalo, Freddy Adu, Eddie Johson, etc.

You could probably run a virtual machine running an older OS more compatible with the game, I doubt W10 still supports a game from 06 haha

There's a solution but it's not legal I'm afraid, so I can't say where to head to and how to fix this. I'm on Win10, I own every solid copy of Football Manager from 2005 till 2021(Football Manager Live included) and I'm proud of my collection, but if I'm forced to play FM07, a product I legally bought (and I indeed still enjoy playing it), and if there's no legal support that could help me to bypass this compatibility obstacle, then I think I have all the rights to move to the Dark Side.

Edit: ... and I also suspect about multi-account...
