Football Manager 2007 Not Installing on Windows 10

Recommended Posts

I am unable to install Football Manager 2007 on my new Windows 10 laptop. 

Once I run the CD drive the Install Shield Wizard pops up but almost immediately I get an error saying '' The installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag''

I have the latest graphics driver for intel already. 

Does anyone know how I can get this installed without using a Virtual Machine?

Changes in how Windows 10 handles DRM issues have meant that there have been considerable difficulties in getting older versions of the game to run in W 10.  There is no magic solution I am afraid apart from trial and error.

I am currently running and playing a career with FM07 on Win10 at the moment.

But how it's working for me and not for you is a mistery. But it works.

It seems though you have an issue with your graphic card.

I managed to install in (compatability - Vista & run as Admin) but it wont launch! 

Make sure that you have directX and Java installed and that your graphics card driver is updated

Tried what you said (Jave. DirextX, Updated graphics card driver......when I double click on the FM2007 desktop shortcut a pop up asks if I want to let "fm.exe" I click yes and then nothing happens.

AVG has been known to conflict with FM, so, first of all try the game with AVG disabled.  If there is a still a problem, make sure that Wndows Defender is active then uninstall AVG and try again.
