Hello there,

Apologies if I'm being a little dense here but I'm having the same error message come up on my copy of FM 2012 and I've clicked the same link but cannot seem to find the section that applies to me.

The warning pops up just before a game when I click the button ready to give my team their instructions on how to deal with the Opposition.

I've actually signed up to the forum, after using it only as a reading resource for a while so I understand that I shouldn't ask questions without searching thoroughly, I'm just at my wits end!

No-one deserves to have what happened to my brilliant Spurs save! I even had Ledley King injury free for more than 3matches!

If anyone can help at all I would greatly appreciate it.

You sir are one of the internets true gents. It's worked and I'm hopefully on my way to a top 2 finish with Spurs. (Apologies if you're an Arsenal fan)

Thanks Again.

First of all are you running any custom graphics or skins? If so, I'd suggest removing them as they may well be causing the XML error.

Okay, first things first, if you're on XP the instructions will be different than if you're on Vista or Windows 7 so I'll try and provide as much information as I can.

For Vista/W7:

Open up 'Computer' as you would normally.

Once open in the top left-hand corner you'll see 'Organize' - click this and a menu will drop down, select 'Folder layout and search options'

From here, click the 'View' tab

On the 'Advanced settings' there should be a circular box entitled 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'. Make sure this is selected.

When this is done, close the box down. Now open Computer once again and go to your C: drive

Select the 'Users' folder

In here select the 'user' you sign into when you sign into Windows (for you it could be mace for example) - it's whatever you called it.

Click on this, then in the next folder go into AppData

In here select 'Roaming'

In here select Sports Interactive -> Football Manger 2012 -> settings

For XP, it's a very similar process. Open up My Computer, the in the top corner select 'Tools'

From here select 'Folder Options'

Select the 'View' tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' is selected

Open up My Computer and go to 'Documents and settings'

Again select whatever your username is named as (if you don't have one it should be User by default)

In here select the Application Date folder

Inside here will be a Sports Interactive folder -> Football Manager 2012

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on. Thanks.
