I try to launch Football Manager 2012, and the following message appears:

A serious error was encountered and the application will close. An error file has been generated in: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\Crash Dumps\FM 2012 V12.0.2.230123 (2012.

I've uninstalled the game, reinstalled it, wiped the entire game and its components off the PC, I don't know what else to try, if someone can assist I'd be extremely grateful.

NOTE: My copy of the game is NOT installed or connected to steam in anyway, all steam required files were removed, I was told it was fine to do so by SEGA. I had used the game perfectly fine for 3 game seasons, but when I uninstalled it to clean the PC it wouldn't reinstall.

Please help, Your's faithfully,

The Managinator (Liam)
