FM 13 doesnt start
I happened to be playing just fine 2 days ago. Today when I start the game nothing happens. When I start it again steam says that application is already running. I dont see it in the process list in the task manager. I validated the steam cache 2 times already. What do i do?

EDIT: I formatted my pc again re-downloaded all of the drivers and re-installed the game. Problem was fixed. Backup your save files though.

I have the same problem, how can I fix it? I got a crash dump after click to play FM2013

I don't get any crash dumps or warning messages. From the shortcut, the game just doesn't start.

I don't get any warning message, only got a crash dump in this folder: "C:\Users\"user_name"\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2013\crash dumps". check this directory, i guess you got some crash dump's.

Do you have any kind of anti-virus installed? If so, what type?
Keledril Jan 28, 2013 @ 9:57am 
I used to have avira free and fm used to work. Right now I don't have any antiviruses.
