I'm using Windows XP & here's how I go about downloading & using tactics ( I'm not sure if you need a file-extracting application as I'd already downloaded ' 7-ZIP ' for free for something else ).
Click on the green ' Download Tactic ' tab to the left of the tactic description ( duh ! ) on the forum,
then follow the links:

>My Computer
>User Documents ( that's you )
>Downloads
> Select tactic file & rt click ' Copy '
>Backtrack to ' Sports Interactive '
>Football Manager 2010
>Tactics
>Rt click ' Paste '

Start your game, navigate to the team tactics page & access:
>Archived Tactics
The newly-downloaded tactic should be there ( & any other tactic you've saved ) for selection.
Remember to save it again once selected.
Sorry if this seems a bit of a long winded process but it becomes second nature after you've done it a few times.

Hope this helps you guys out

PS: I remember You used to get a message giving you the options of ' Run ' or ' Save ' when you attempted to download tactics ( on earlier versions of WXP ). If you still get that message always click on ' Save ' - I used to save to my desktop & copy it to my ' Tactics ' folder from there, but you get several destination options, so choose whichever's best for you. The procedure is the same except you can ignore the ' Downloads ' step.

Heya all

Have had the same problem, which gets pretty frsutrating. However I found a way around it.

Go to manage tactics, click on import, and then create a new folder.
Call the name of the folder something that will be easily findable in Windows search (I called mine findme, but anything distinguishable will do)
Search for this folder using Windows search, then open it in Windows.
Copy any downloaded tactics into this folder.
In FM10, close import, and then reopen import, your downloaded tactics should now be selectable.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

when I download a tactic it downloads as a WinRAR so when I extract it to the tactic file on my FM I can't see the tactic I downloaded when I go to import it. Can anyone help me?

I've downloaded tactics such as Mr Hough's 4-1-2-3 and JP Woody's German V4 tactic but I can't use them.

I am on FM and I've downloaded and everything, and I go to Manage Tactics; import, and the tactics aren't there.

Any ideas?
