I'm getting a site error when I visit the download link. Help!

If you get this error:
"Oops, sorry!
An error was encountered while processing your request:

Well, don't panic.
Open your Steam client and search for Football Manager 2012 Demo there. Open that page in your Steam client browser and find the button that says "DOWNLOAD DEMO". It should work this way.
Alternatively, just copy/paste this link to your browser address (requires you have the Steam client):

If you don't have the Steam client, make sure to get it from here

pushI speak my mind and I speak the truth. FM Scout is my brainchild and I try to make it a better place every year. I consider myself a lucky man for being able to turn this website into an engaging and vibrant community.

It's OK. I'm not expecting people to have facebook; my point was that I've answered that so many times that felt like I was doing a meditation exercice, if you know what I mean :)

No, but probably the only one so far who didn't read the whole article?
What you get is the most common 'problem' and a solution is mentioned above. I've personally replied to it a hundred times on our FM12 facebook page.
