I'm currently playing football manager 2012 just because I've managed to get that to work on my netbook from a code I got off this website but now I've downloaded fm editor 12 and it doesn't seem to load up. In my task manager it comes up but I know I will need a code of some sort for this.
Any help will be much appreciated

ive seen this on a previous thread but can't get this to

Obviously this was initially a problem for loading the actual game but it was solved by altering the target in the icon's properties... but any ideas on how to solve it for the editor though?!
Problem solved!

If anyone's interested...

Create a shortcut on your desktop for the editor.

Go to properties and put the following in the target area: "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\tools\editor\editor.exe" -applaunch 34000 -small_screen -windowed
