I've downloaded the 32-bit installer and can get the past the CD Key, when i go through the setup i get Error= -13

Any ideas on what could be going wrong?

By "simple settings" I meant having everything unticked on dgVoodooCpl. Also, under "Config folder / Running instance" at the very top of dgVoodooCpl, make sure it's the "\AppData\Roaming\" instance you are editing.

Once this is done, make sure the game's 3D Setup does NOT have "Software Renderer" as the 3D graphics card (i.e. choose your PC's graphics card) and everything else is unticked or set to low, and it should run much faster and smoother.

Hope this makes sense!

Thank to LSB90, I got this running! However, it is slow as hell.
I sadly don't understand what is meant by "simple settings" on dgVoodooCpl, so that may be the problem right there.
Any final help possible? I'm eager to get Stalybridge to the Premier League again!

I've got this running on Windows 10 x64!

Thanks all so far for the help with the 32-bit installer and the CD key.

Firstly, make sure you've done both steps under "Issues fixed" on the following link:

You need to replace the "FootballManager.exe" file in the game directory with a No-CD EXE, which I found at:
(Mirrored on this page)

The download is an ACE archive, which the "NewBie" link on that page advises how to extract.

Copy the "FootballManager.exe" you extract into the game folder and it should work.

I found it runs smoothest using the most simple settings on dgVoodooCpl (which you download with the DX8 DLLs).

I haven't played for too long, and this is one of the worst games ever for crashing into Windows, so further tweaks may be needed. I used to find running it in Windows 98/ME compatibility mode helped.

For those who managed to install it with 32bit workaround and in need of a CD key, you can use this: 4507-1863659-3033569-5650

I still haven't been able to run the game on Win10-64bit though. I have managed to install it but it doesn't launch (I have tried many compatibility settings, and added Directx 8 dlls with no success).

If someone who managed to make it work on Win10 can help me, it would be very much appreciated.

Ok, so I found a 32-bit installer to bypass the 16-bit installer which seams to work, only problem now is its asking for a game code from the manual. Where can I get a code? Link to the installer here:

I got the same problem with not supported on 64-bit windows, the game is 32-bit i believe but its the imstaller that wont run cause its only 16-bit, anyway round this?

Unsupported 16-bit application, cannot run on 64-bit. If anyone can explain to me how to run it anyway, you will have my eternal love. I have been looking for this ultimate form of nostalgia for about 10 years now, and I see it's getting very close!

Still won't run on my 64-bit Windows 10, as was the case when I tried running it from the original CD. The 2001 version presented on this site does work... Any ideas?
