+1 for Windows 7, MS have got their act together on this one. Also running '09 with no issues at all and find it more compatible than Vista with my other games.

I don't think so. I even believe Windows 7 is already released for businesses.

FM09 is indeed running on windows 7

Windows 7 definitely boots faster. Only took 35 minutes to upgrade my Vista rig too. I really like the Mac style Task Bar too.

does it play fm faster on windows 7?

For that you need a faster processor and lots of RAM. OS doesn't matter much. I had XP before (with a okay-ish processor and 2GB RAM) and now I've vista (C2Duo 3GHZ + 4 GB RAM) and now FM09 is running faster, smoother than XP.

[sarcasm]Yeah, that's the OS's fault ...[/sarcasm]

come on - Even I know XP was better than Vista for gaming purpose. But servicepack2 made Vista much more stable now. I really don't find much to complain about it. :)

FM09 works fine on the final Windows 7 here (it's been available over MSDN for quite some time now...)

The RTM has been out for about a month and Im sure Sega/SI will have access to this to ensure FM10 runs ok. As 7 is basically a facelift of Vista with all the bad bits taken out Im sure there is nothing to worry about. There is a large beta testing team and Im sure some of them will have Win 7 running FM fine ;)

I'm having no problem running FM10 on my Win7 PC, so it must be something else other than the OS

Seconded. I've got FM on all three of my builds. Desktop, Notebook, Netbook, all running fine (albiet the netbook lacks the grunt required and is largely for the girlfriend)

What do you mean by that? An error comes up when installing? Disc not detected?

And yes, it installed fine. No workaround or anything required.

Hi Guys

I am having a problem with my new copy of fm2010.

i recently installed windows 7 ultimate and whenever i put the dvd in the dvd drive the autorun wont work and when i go into the folder and click on the setup.exe it loads the install launcher and gets to 100% and then does nothing.........im a bit stumped to be honest.

I have never had this problem and its quite annoying.

I would really appreciate if you guys could help me with this.

Many thanks

Just do the following:

1. Click on the 'Start' button.

2. Click on 'Games.'

3. Double click on the Football Manager 2010 icon/name and the game will start.

I don't know if this is how it works for everyone, but I've been the starting the game up like this since I got it.

Btw, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

I wish i could do that but i cant even get it to install, as i mentioned it gets to the prepare installation and that gets upto 100% and then it dissapears. I expected it to go into the fm2010 installation screen but it does nothing.

Its so frustrating!

Any help?

Sounds like you need to update your java installation. Google "java runtime" and download it from the sun micrososytem website, or filehippo.com

There's (or was) a sticky at the top of the forum that gave you links to everything that you need to update to get FM10 working properly.

I have absolutely the same problem as Jamie5jw... I'm using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, and when I mount the dvd the autorun doesn't work, I managed to install the game , but when I try to start it it says "The program can't start because d3dx9_41.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." I have directx 11, can this be the problem ? the game was working perfectly fine on windows xp, but since I installed windows 7 half of my programs and games don't work...crap.

It sounds to me like he has downloaded an illegal copy of the game and he means that when he mounts the .iso file it won't autorun.

If this is the case then I would like to stop being a complete scumbag and to go and buy the game.

Realistically, do you think you deserve to get the game working? I don't! Buy it you cheapskate.

You can get FM10 for under £10 online now. No reason to pirate it.
