After discussing the problems with Byteshield, they've suggested a number of these issues with activation can be resolved by taking the following steps:

However we are aware this isn’t working for everyone, so for those of you still encountering issues, we suggest contacting their support team directly at - [email protected]

Please let us know how you get on, thanks.

Ive had a few days of good gaming with this, but recently its been saying server down and making me re-enter my code, only to then say the server is down. Am I really going to have to hope they are up and running when I want to play? didnt see an answer in the FAQ's??

I can't start my game now either

Had the same problems as everyone else involving the need to start game as administrator. Then Norton removed the fm.bbz file. Had to reload that. Was able to play all day today but, upon trying to restart tonight Byteshield popped a message saying there was a new version of the installation available and asked if I wanted to download. Whether I answered yes or no, it tried to download and the server's weren't available so it failed. Bottom Line- I STILL CAN'T PLAY THIS GAME!!

Byteshield sucks and the company deserves to go bankrupt for sucking so much. I would not recommend anybody to buy a digital version unless it is from Steam. Go with the retail version.

Thought that the digital version was better than this ****. Luckily I fixed it........

Hi, I've downloaded the file
FootballManager2011_ed_efgis.exe

I've turned off my anti virus and run the file as administrator.

A message occur:
Install Anywhere
Please select another location to extract the installer to.

I've chosen a folder, but nothing happened. Meanwhile I've sent e-mail to byteshield support. Still waiting for response.

Thanks.

Edit: Ok. I've got response.

Edit: Problem solved. The problem was I put the downloaded file in Desktop folder. It should be in C:\.
There should be a clear instruction where to put your download. Just my 2 cents.
