Hasn't worked. I am an avid 3d gamer and fairly pc savy. My drivers are all up to date. I'm even running Vista SP2. Tried to run game in admin mode. Nothing works. The fact that this problem is happening with people that bought the dvd and activated through steam rules out file corruption during download. The fact that the error message is the same for everybody points in other direction too. So deleting files will be a waste of time and bandwidth. What else do we have left?

when someone who installed via disk got the same error message i decided not to reinstall as that couldnt be the problem.

Why can't I run DXSETUP that came with FM2010, yet i can run DXSETUP that came with FM2009? What is different between the two files?
I believe the so called "first time setup" may be somehow responsible.

Does this not seem totally ridiculous? I have never had a problem installing any software, other than the two occasions that I have used Steam for Football Manager. Had Henry_14's problem and am attempting a reinstall.

I was getting the same message. After hours of trying, I finally fixed it by updating DirectX as per the FAQs above.

Amazing how complicated they have made it to play a video game. Really frustrating stuff.

I bought the game from Steam, pre loaded it (I didn't download the demo beforehand) and started getting the same "football manager 2010 10.1.0f84847 has stopped working" message as soon as I tried to launch the game. Since then I have tried "Delete local content" on Steam and reinstalled the game, I have tried "verify integrity of game cache" and I have tried updating Direct X and I am still getting the same error message!

Last year I was very annoyed that I was unable to play the game on the day it was issued because of issues with Steam, this year though I am more calm about it because, to be honest, I was expecting it.

I'm getting a problem through Steam when it trys to install. It says it can't run DirectXC on 1 64-bit version of Windows, and when I try to run the fm10.exe it says the same. I'm on Windows 7. How do you get a refund from Steam? just going to go to the damn shop and buy a copy.

Not particularly helpful I know, but I have to admit to a certain amount of schadenfreude, as I had absolutely no problems last year with the unilock system and was very disappointed that this option was removed this year.

Basically I object to having to install more software if I want to play a game without having the disc in the drive (excluding digital downloads of course) and even worse it seems that this software has to be running in the background if you want to play the game.

This just means for me that when the disc arrives I will go back to the old way of disc in drive when playing, which might possibly mean that I play the game less and therefore lose interest.

I had FM 2009 last year and played through steam as well and Uniloc gave me endless problems if i am honest,There was about 30 error messages for one code and would much rather use Steams own unlocker than Uniloc,It is no that bothers me it is the FM 10 message and noone knows how to solve it as of yet so i could buy the game and then not be able to play it for a few days which seems pointless tbh

I have two odd Steam problems:-

1. Every time I launch the game, it goes to the 'Installing DirectX' screen.
2. I'm showing version 10.0.0 when it's my understanding that the patch should have been applied and I ought to be on 10.1.0.

Anyone got any feedback on these?

Hi guys

Im getting the same 10.1.0f84847 error message as per earlier posts. I've tried the directx setup and dotnet that Aim Less quotes earlier in the thread but with no joy. As this seems to have gone quiet has someone found a solution to this problem?

I'm tempted to reinstall but worries this may cause probs and notice that it didnt work for others.

HELP!

thanks Henry, there seems to be a real lack of SI involvement with issues this year - I thought 09 was bad enough!

Hi guys

I've downloaded the dxwebsetup.exe from Microsoft and it now works! (I'd already tried it via the Steam files on the C drive but that didn't solve it)

Good luck Henry!

After spending my USD 40,00, downloaded the game via steam (never used this service before) only to see a nice icon in my screen that doesn´t respond to anything. I click on it, a little box appears and says that it´s preparing to launch FM2010, and that´s it. The little box closes, and nothing happens after that.

Sorry to disturb you guys with this, but I waited for a couple of hours to download and now I´m trying to rename/ uninstall a lot of programs, without any sucess at all.

Why do they have to mess about with Steam, just load it up like any other normal PC game!

Like others here I cannot load the game through Steam. I had the same problems with 2009.

I have tried all the workthroughs suggested and 2 hours after starting the install process I am still not playing.

Sega - get serious if this CRAP Steam system is on next years game I will NOT be buying it.

Allow us an online activation system like last year

Need help, game keeps crashing as match starts to set up and I get the error message ""football manager 2010 10.1.0f84847 has stopped working" and then the game closes.

It only crashes when I try to start to play the match and I have installed the latest directX download, latest java, verified the game cach files, installed the .NET updates and I am using windows 7 so there is no compatible driver updates that I can install.

Any ideas to help?

Same problem as RobT in that the self updater is freezing at certain stages and shows no signs of resuming. Have tried restarting but freezes again.

To the guys stuck updating


First ty this

Restart Steam

Second

If the issue persists, exit Steam, rename your ClientRegistry.blob, and restart Steam. The ClientRegistry.blob can be found in your Steam installation directory. c:\program files\steam by default.

Third
If the issue still persists, you may have issues with your local Steam files. You may refresh these files without deleting your game files. Please follow this process to refresh your Steam files:
1-Exit Steam
2-Navigate to your Steam installation directory. (c:\program files\steam\ by default.)
3-Delete everything in that directory [B]EXCEPT[/B] the following:
steam.exe
steamapps directory (All of Steam's game files are kept here.)
4-Restart Steam

wonder why the fack my posts disappear
