If Football Manager 2012 will not start or run properly, we would suggest checking your Antivirus and/or Firewall programs.

Please add “FM.exe” to the list of exclusions within your security software. If this alone doesn't work we would suggest adding the entire Steam folder to the list of exclusions.
Unfortunately we cannot give specific steps for this issue but usually it is as follows: navigate to Antivirus -> Advanced Settings -> Exclusions and add the “FM.exe” there.
The “FM.exe” can be found at “C: Program Files -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> football manager 2012

Some security software can also prevent the normal loading operation of Steam games, including common errors such as “Unable to load filesystem_steam.dll” and “Engine Error: Could not load library client”.
If you are encountering Steam errors, please do the following – once again we apologize as we cannot give specific steps for this issue:
Disable Behaviour Guard via PC Tools. If this fails to resolve the issue, fully disabling or uninstalling your security software may be necessary.


You can find more information on how to configure your Firewall to allow Steam to run flawlessly, see here.


You can also find a list of programs that could interfere with Steam.
