This happened to me. I googled the numbers you typed 0xc150002 and found my solution.
Although the game suggests re-installing, this does not help as your computer is likely missing the same files as mine.

The first link is SI's explanation.

The second link takes you to the microsoft download you require to play. After downloading this to my PC I then re-installed FM and was able to play without a problem.

Some sort of MS.NET framework seems to be the answer to a lot of FM 2009 problems this year.

Yeah it looks like it is a problem with the .NET framework, it usually appears as a windows update, well it did for me and whatever other computer I've installed the updates
