[quote name='RAG17']I didn't explained very well.

I was talking about an error called fm.exe.

I have the patch and the shortcut on my desktop but, if i can't select the option windowed at preferences, if i put the text in the shortcut preferences, it gives that error.

Any idea how can i resolve that?[/QUOTE]

Okay so if you don't do that does the game run fine in full screen?

[quote name='Steve Cox']Okay so you're trying to run the game through steam.

That's an error with the steam software not the FM software. Have you tried to uninstall it or done anything else to the software?[/QUOTE]

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Couple of times when it was installing it failed. Apart from that i haven't done anything else except for attempting to play on it.

hi there, i also have the XMl parsing error and have tried every piece of advice under the sun, through steam, not through steam, the target field thing on the shortcut dont work as all it says is football manager 2009 as oppose to all that other stuff its meant to say. It all happened cos i got blue screen whilst playing the game. I have all the correct specs. I have spent twice as long trying to sort this out and installing re-installing as opposed to what i have playing the game. I absouloutly love the game, but i just keep getting the feeling that this cant be saved and is a serious waste of £30 please someone help please please please.

Also i have tried the show hidden files folders etc but havnt got the cache file, and also had the latest patch.

Hi there. I had a load of problems trying to install the game when it came out.
I was told it was because of my graphics card or something. He told me to check back here in a week to see if you'd come up with a solution, and what i'd have to do.
I've typed "dxdiag" into Run like the guy told me a week ago, and in the device bit it says:
Name: SiS
Chip Type: SiS 661FX Rev 01
Approx. Total Memory: 64.0 MB

What do I do now to get going? Is my PC good enough?????

[quote name='Steve Cox']2 Questions.

Firstly your computer has 2 drives. Are they both DVD drives or CD drives?

Secondly where did you purchase your disk from?[/QUOTE]

Hi Steve, 1 drive is a CD only drive and the other is a new DVD / RE / CD drive, not had any previous problems with ant games. I bought the game from Sainburys in Derby.

I'm jelious of all these people with running problems...I be happy just to run the disc.:thdn::mad:

[quote name='Steve Cox']That's fine you can get as much as you can into one post and then I'll let you know if we need more.

Cheers.[/QUOTE]


OK Steve, i've just tried to run the game again and played a friendly against Swansea and part way through a huge image of a Swansea shirt appeared and then the game stopped responding. I eventually got out of it using task manager, i'd guess that this is part of the same problem. Anyway this is a large chunk of the dxdiag file:

After a succesful install when i try and run the game i get:

" Football Manager has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution becomes available".

I am running on Windows Vista.

Any ideas anyone??

Cheers

Hi Steve - so i'm on my second copy of the game - after changing one disc as it wasn't working... and my laptop still simply will not read the disc. I've tried it on another computer and it works (although the first one didn't) but it just makes noises and nothing shows up on the dvd drive in my computer. It's a pretty decent laptop and works with all other dvds... Have I just wasted £30 or is there anything i can try? It's not scratched - although the first one wierdly was...

I've also tried using a lense cleaner but made no difference. Bought it at GAME

Cheers

Hey steve, my game crashes all the time, and I've updated my drivers. Offcourse I have the patched version. I've also played in windowed mode, and it's freezing also. I always have to reset my computer. It's only happening when I play a match. Here's my dxdiag. Can you check please why it doesn't work? I can play fluently games like fallout 3, dead space, fifa 09, .... but it only crashes with fm 09. I cannot play a game like that. Thanks.

[FONT=Calibri] [/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Please read the information below, the suggestions have been confirmed as fixing the issues you are experiencing. [/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri] [/FONT]

[B][COLOR=navy][FONT=Calibri]I own a MAC – what’s the problem?[/FONT][/COLOR][/B]

Mac users have nothing to worry about there is no activation on the game for MAC users, just the normal disc check. Mac Book Air users will need an external Optical drive in order to play – we are currently looking into options for this.

[B][COLOR=navy][FONT=Calibri]ALL USERS PLEASE DO THIS FIRST[/FONT][/COLOR][/B]
[FONT=Calibri] [/FONT]
[FONT=Calibri]Please check the ‘Football_Manager_2009_InstallLog.log’ located in ‘C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009’ and report any errors. If you do have errors can you please also report where you purchased the game from.[/FONT]

[B][COLOR=navy][FONT=Calibri]When I try to activate, it says I'm not connected to the internet / other activation problems[/FONT][/COLOR][/B]

We have created a small activator script that should help anybody having trouble activating the game online.

[B]Step 1[/B] – Download the activator from [URL="http://www.footballmanager.com/fixv2.zip"]http://www.footballmanager.com/fixv2.zip[/URL]

[B]Step 2[/B] – Unzip the contents of the activator to your desktop.

[B]Step 3[/B] – Double click the activate.vbs file. Note the screen shot below.

[IMG]http://www.spasecretsmagazine.com/temp/pic1.jpg[/IMG]

[B]Step 4[/B] – Next you will see a dialog box prompting you for your license key.

[IMG]http://www.spasecretsmagazine.com/temp/pic2.jpg[/IMG]

[B]Step 5[/B] – Enter your license key into the dialog. Remember – to check your key at [URL="http://keycheck.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com"]http://keycheck.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com[/URL]

[B]Step 6[/B] – Press OK - then wait 30-60 seconds and you will receive a second message. If you are successful – the message will read:

[IMG]http://www.spasecretsmagazine.com/temp/pic3.jpg[/IMG]

If you get this message, open the game and run it.

If the activation fails, the message will read something like:

[IMG]http://www.spasecretsmagazine.com/temp/pic4.jpg[/IMG]

The number in this message will help us understand the problem. For example, In this case the number -1003 indicates that your license key. If the error is -1003 enter your license key into the form at: [url]http://keycheck.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com[/url]

If it is something besides -1003, please send Muzchap or JMordetsky a PM and they will do their best to help!

If you have a shortcut on your desktop you can do the following:

[list]
[*] Right-click on the FM shortcut.
[*] Choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
[*] In the "Target" field, add the --reset_preferences command line option after "fm.exe", so it should look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" --reset_preferences
[*] Press OK and then try to run the game as normal, using the shortcut.
[/list]

You'll want to remove the command after you run the game, as otherwise it will continue to reset your preferences every time you launch.

If you don't have a shortcut you can make one and then perform the instructions on the shortcut you've made.

[LIST]
[*]If you purchased and installed the game through Steam you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Football Manager 2009/
[*]If you purchased and installed the game from a boxed DVD copy you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2009/
[/LIST]

One solution to this is playing the game in Windowed Mode. Instructions on how to setup the game in windowed mode can be found in another thread:

I've just trolled through 27 pages with this question asked several times, and it has been completely ignored by everyone at SI....

I have downloaded the activator and the launcher because I received the could not connect to the internet error, i put my serial in that and it says completed please launch the game etc, I try launch the game and im faced with the activation box again saying my trial period has expired.

Now is anyone at SI going to respond to this? we the customers paid alot of money for a game we should have no problems installing or playing, but having a problem and been completely ignored is a complete disgrace to be quite frank.

quite simply... how do we fix this error? if you don't know... just say, ignoring customers is not how you get repeat custom.

That is simply what Windows does when it cannot receive a response from an application. My guess is that this comes up for you when the game is processing (fixtures or dates) and simply means that FM is busy spending all of it's time running the game instead of responding to Windows. I get it every now and again, and have done for all versions of FM/CM - as I always play in windowed mode.

Given that this really isn't effecting your game, i don't really see how this is a bug and should warrant such posts?

As far as I am aware there are three "solutions" to this "bug".

1 - there's a preference for "processing speed" or something similar with settings such as "fastest (less responsive)" "fast" etc etc.. try turning this down if you want your game/pc to be more 'responsive'.... but do remember that this will adversely affect the time taken to process events/fixtures
2 - select fewer active leagues
3 - purchase a better computer

With the whole activation thing... if I format and re install FM on the same computer do I still have all 4 other activations available or does it use one?

Share this post

As far as I am aware you need to properly uninstall FM and deactivate if before reformatting or else you will lose one of your activations.

As far as i can tell from the forums, for those with the disk copy of FM, this currently works; but those (like myself) who installed via steam are still waiting for a deactivation URL to go live before we can deactivate our games.

Hope this helps

I am trying to install the patch for WWSM09 from the sega Download 1.

I keep getting a Windows Security Warning that it has found a problem with the file.

It will not let me install b/c it says the file does not have a "digital signature."

I have a digital signature issue and i still can't install the patch. I have tried doing what was suggested below but it didn't work.

do I have to uninstall my game and use steam to get the patch or can someone tell me an easy way to install the patch from a direct download as none of them work.

cheers

I sYou receive an error when trying to install the Patch - digital signature issue (Vista)

Gudge,

I downloaded the patch and that DirectX thingy and still my game continue to freeze when going into a match till I saw your posting. I went to the Display & Sound and select 'Windowed' and now my game is up and running. Thanks! I hope my game will be fine from now on.

... and one more thing, can you tell your bosses in SI for the next FM2010, please have it working right out of the box and have a more easier activation code process. The activation exercise was really a painful affair.

Thanks again for your tip.

Regards from Malaysia.

[quote name='Steve Cox']You can use your saved game, just make sure you move it somewhere safe before doing a complete uninstall.

Once again this is the advice about the XML Parsing Error from the front page:



Again give that a shot before completely uninstalling.

If it fails then the rest of the files you are after are in the following locations:

[b]How to delete your Cache files[/b]

First of all you need to turn on hidden files and folders. Go to My Computer and at the top select 'Tools' the 'Folder Options'. The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Windows XP:
1. Open “My Computer”
2. Navigate to : “Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\
3. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder.
4. Delete the “Football Manager 09” Folder.

Wndows Vista:
1. Click “Start”
2. Click your username on the start Menu
3. Click on “AppData” and then “Roaming”
4. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder
5. Delete the “Football Manager 09” Folder.

[b]How to Delete your Registry Files[/b]

Windows XP:
1. Click “Start”
2. Click "Run"
3. Type in "Regedit"
4. Go into the HKEY_CURRENT_USER Folder
5. Go into the 'Software Folder'
6. Delete the Sports Interactive Folder
7. Go into the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Folder
8. Go into the 'Software Folder'
9. Delete the Sports Interactive Ltd Folder

Windows Vista:
1. Click “Start”
2. Type in the search box "Regedit"
3. Go into the HKEY_CURRENT_USER Folder
4. Go into the 'Software Folder'
5. Delete the Sports Interactive Folder
6. Go into the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Folder
7. Go into the 'Software Folder'
8. Delete the Sports Interactive Ltd Folder

Other file locations:

C:\ProgramData\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009

And your documents folder (Has the location of your saved games).

After going thorugh and clearing anything FM related re-install the game, apply the patch and give it another go.

Let me know if it works for you.

If it does fail please post your DxDiag as well with your answer.

Cheers[/QUOTE]

Hi Steve. Progress has been made! The xml parsing errors are gone and I can start a new game.

However when I try to load my old game, a "This game could not be loaded" message comes up and FM shuts down. When I click it again it says "FM09 is already running" and I have to restart to get it to work.

Any suggestions as to how I can play my old game as I'm already 3 eventful seasons in?

Thanks again.

Hi Mark

I have purchased FM09 via Steam. All working ok until I submit the team prior to the match engine starting. Then it just freezes with the 'football cursor' showing. Have left it for some time but it does not progress. My PC spec is 1.66GHz; 2GB RAM; Core 2Duo; so should not be a machine issue...any ideas pls?

Thanks

HI,

Sorry if this has been dealt with before but I've read through so many pages of forums and I really should at work ;)

Anyway, I bought the game just normally on disk and didn't download it or anything and every time I've tried to play it it just randomy crashes. Sometimes it's when I'm trying to do my first match, sometimes it's just randomly, I've still never even managed to play a game yet. I don't get any error messages or warning or pop ups or anything it just sit there. My laptop is only a year old but I know nothing at all about computers so I'm worried I won't be able to do anything about it. I've had every other game and never had a problem.

Sorry if this is repeated.

Thanks
