Some Fifa Manager 12 players have been reporting that they are unable to start the game in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. For others, the game starts, but it crashes right when you obviously don’t want that to happen
I love soccer, or football, as those residing in USA and Canada like to call it, and that’s why I play a lot of soccer games on my PlayStation and on my Windows 8 computer. Now, I’ve stumbled upon multiple reports that Fifa Manager 12 doesn’t work in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. And believe me, I know what that means!
Multiple forum postings online on EA forums and on Microsoft show that there are obvious problems with the Fifa Manager in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Here’s one of the complaints:
I bought Fifa Manager 12 and after installing it I can’t play the freaking game. It crashes at the begining and it’s quite frustating not been able to play the game you spend good money on it. Fifa Manager 11 works fine, but FM12 won’t. I tried to uninstall FM11 and install 12 but it just won’t work. Please, can you tell me what’s wrong?
But the fix to this annoying problem is very simple, since Fifa Manager 12 is obviously compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Just Right click your FIFA manager 12 shortcut icon from your desktop and select ‘Troubleshoot Compatibility’. After that, select ‘troubleshoot program’ and then select Windows 7 then test the program and it should run. Now, how simple was that!
