Windows 7: Football Manager 2010

For Christ sake, this is really driving me nuts :S I tried with integrating game cache files through properties and it says that 2 items needs to be "reaquired". Restarting Steam doesn't work, the only potential solution I haven't tried it yet is running the game in Steam compatibility mode, bu I don't know how to do this

Right now, the game is updating again, because I've reinstalled it. What to do next?

Personally i wouldn't think it was Steam.exe you'd need to mess with. But the FM10.exe (If that's what it's called) instead. Locate the exe for FM10 which Steam usually put's games like this in C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\common (Or something along them lines) and right click on the correct exe file and select properties. Then choose the Compatibility tab and then tick where it say's "Run this in compatibility mode for:" and choose something like WinXP SP3. Also might be an idea to tick "Disable Visual Themes" and "Disable Desktop Composition".

Hope you get it sorted finally. (Oh and i did warn about Steam and their games from third party developers) Most of them work fine but if they're not Valve games and they don't work, you're kind of screwed for any further support from Steam...

Windows 7 x64 32bit

Tried everything you guys gave me but still, it doesn't work.

I will check the link to the forum you gave me. But it seems nobody else got the same problem as me. I sent mail to the support team and now I'm waiting for the reply. I hope these guys can fix it.

Anyways, thanks. If you know any other solution, bring it on :)
