Football Manager 2007 not working on Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am trying to play Football Manager 2007 on my windows 10 pc but it will not work at all. I know alot of it is down to compatibility settings but I have literally tried all of them. Its by far the best one and there must be a way of playing it without installing an older version of windows. I am not very hopeful but if I find a way to play this I will be so pleased, may even go a far as £20 to whoever can get it playing on Windows 10.

Any help or guidance or fix will all be appreciated!

Obviously all previous FM versions have not been tested on W10, so there is no definitive check list to help get it working and is often a case of trial and error.

Does the game install?

If installed, does it load?

Do you get an error message?

Are you running the latest patch?

Older versions need Java- do you have that installed?

Are all the graphics drivers fully updated?

Are you running any third party graphics and have you tried it without them?

Are you running an antivirus and have you tried it with this disabled or uninstalled?

If it loads, have you tried running in windowed mode?

The game installs on Vista compatibility

The game will install correctly by the looks of it.

It won't open to play the game, even with running as administrator

I get a compatibility message to troubleshoot it

It's a laptop that isn't a year old yet and its up to date all the time

I installed java too

No third party applications or anything

Have tried without antivirus on

I did try windowed mode

Just won't play or open

I even copied the files over from the CD when installing and installed by running as administrator.

I assumed you'd do that to be fair but in all honesty, it appears to be the only solution to actually running these older versions of FM. So unless the developers want to release a fix themselves there isn't much we, as consumers who have legally bought the game, can do

Hi Martin, could you clarify what is was that you did to get it working please?

Was it the Graphics Card stuff that FrazT put a link to?

I need to know - it's driving me mad!
