I have the same issue, and its very frustrating. I've done all it says in the fix advice, but no joy and Im awaiting the support team to answer my question.

please let me know when they answer. I have uninstalled everything and now when i try installing it again it says steam may be damaged or incomplete . never had any problem with fm 2011

I've had this problem as well.. first time I've ever tried to play Footy Manager since the old days of Champ Man but no one ever gets back to you from Steam an no one knows on here how to sort it!!

its such a shame as i rate the game highly and never had this type of problem. Was 7 seasons in and smashing all comps with liverpool . last 2 seasons won the champ league and prem . was about to start a new save and develope a lower league team but now left at a dead end not being able to play it at all . f***ing ♥♥♥♥ed big time

same problem with me. If you ctrl-alt-delete then start task manager. Close fm.exe and exit. The game should start then.

i cant install the game now as when i try it say steam needs to be online to update but is set offline . then when i press ok it says failed to load libsteam.dllib

Im very frustrated as this is the only game i play on my macbook and am not much of a computer genesis . loaded my old fm 2011 and work fine . why did they decide to complicate things ??

Having the same problem today,worked fine yesterday.Ctl-alt-delete trick doesn't work either.

Just for testing sake,I reinstalled FM12,it does the same thing.
Funnily,FM13 still works on my other PC.....I did notice steam was updating when I turned this PC on this morning,wonder if that's stuffed something up.Have also tried reinstalling steam to no avail.

I've tried the CTRL, ALT & DEL numerous times and tried to open the game different ways after it but no luck.. I actually downloaded the FM2011 demo just to try it and that done the exact same thing.

I've updated it to make sure no files are missing etc but nothing, it even updated itself yesterday but that never done anything to change what is happening

I bought FM2013 and still havent played it yet......very annoying as i keep getting "app already running " message. Have uninstalled everything and reinstalled to no avail. Please help.......

May be related to anti-virus - make sure the FM.exe and Steam.exe are added to your exceptions. Even if it worked before, sometimes when a game or program updates, your AV can read it differently and start blocking it when it never did before. Let us know how you get on, thanks.

I don't have anti virus installed unless its automatically installed with MacBook .if so how do I check please .

I think I fixed my issue by reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++.It popped up an error of some sort about that,so thought I'd reinstall it.No idea if Macs have that,but if it does,try that.Hopefully that may help.

I am having the same problem. Bought the game yesterday for my netbook. Has this been resolved? I have tried the solutions mentioned on other forums but it still does not work. Any help much appreciated.
