Championship Manager 2001/2002 - Official Download and Installation FAQ

pcolex1 wrote: Fri Apr 21, 2023 5:36 am Thanks for the quick reply @Redknapp69. I have uninstalled the game and deleted all champman folder, any downloads and followed the link on uninstalling the game. I couldn't see anything obvious in the Environment Variables but may have missed it.

My previous saves are always there so feels like there's data I've not deleted but I can't find it. I've not moved the game anywhere other than the default place C/Program Files(x86)/Championship Manager 01/02.

I must have missed something to delete I just don't know where. Any help would be great.

Thanks
You can check for more files in your computer, here : usually located (unless you specified otherwise during the installation of the game) in: 'C:\Users\( your_username or your_computer_name )\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Championship Manager 01-02\' .

If you need suport about 'Where is my VirtualStore folder?' >>> Copy and paste the following line exactly to your File Explorer's address bar: %userprofile%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore

Hi my friend using a win 11 pro. he downloaded the iso, and runs on the virtual drive, but when he exe the setup.exe there is no reaction anymore, but after 15min the installer appeared, then asking us to choose the langauge, after clicking ok, the screen disappeared and never came back. Anyway we can resolve this?

I am a CM gamer myself and I had successfully installed on my pc, not sure why he cant do it with the exact same step. he got stuck at installing.

The second post of this thread has your answer.

Q: Nothing happens when I click on ‘autorun.exe’ or 'setup.exe'?
A: Go into 'This PC', and right-click your disc drive (or virtual drive if you are using the .iso file) and click 'Open'. Then right-click 'Setup.exe' and click 'Open'.
A: Run Task Manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL, then click 'Task Manager'), click on 'Setup.exe' and then ‘Go to details’. Then right-click on 'Setup.exe' again in the 'Details' tab and click ‘Analyse Wait Chain’. This will tell you what other processes may be stopping 'Setup.exe' from running. Close down these processes and try again.
A: Your anti-virus could be blocking the executable from running. Temporarily turn it off and try again.
A: Close down your browsers.
A: Try right-clicking on 'Setup.exe' then click ‘Properties’. Click on the 'Compatibility' tab, tick ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for:' and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3). Also, ensure that you have ticked ‘Run this program as administrator’.
A: Run Task Manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL, then click 'Task Manager') and kill any other tasks running in the background which could be causing a conflict.
A: Run Task Manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL, then click 'Task Manager') and if there are more than one instances of 'Setup.exe' appearing, kill them all and try again.
A: Try turning off User Account Control in the Control Panel if you are able to.
A: It could be that your Windows profile is playing up somehow. Try creating a new profile on your computer and running the installation in that profile. If it works, then switch back to your normal profile and the game should already be installed for you.

Error Message when trying to open a save

Post by gargatouf »

Sorry of this has been asked before but I can't find it. I am trying to open a save and I get an error message asking me to insert the disk. I've been playing this save for a few days and suddenly I started getting this error message. What can I do.

Tried putting insert disc in search bar? - about 400 people probably asked same question :)

Basically - you need to re-mount the ISO if you are not playing with disc

I get the following message when trying to Run as Administrator:

"Unable to initiate the graphics in full screen mode - please ensure that DirectX has been installed correctly and that your graphics adaptor supports 800x600 pixel resolution in 16 bit colour."

Can anyone help? I have tried searching to see if this is a common issue.

Setup.exe

Post by profplug »

There is no Setup.exe in the file when I mount the game, only Setup, which has the same PC thumbnail as Setup.exe, when I run the Setup nothing happens? Is there anything more specific I need to do or maybe anything my system may be doing to stop it from working correctly? Thanks.

*** If problem on run autorun and setup, setup.exe problem , not work , does nothing:
Solution: Firstly , if you did not try yet, restart computer and try installation again. If still no response from installation;
1* Right click on SETUP.EXE, go to Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program in Windows XP (service pack 3) mode and tick 'Run as an admin'. Double click on setup.exe. You can try other compatibility modes , if Windows XP (service pack 3 ) does not work .
2* If nothing happens, open up the task manager by right clicking on the task bar and choosing Task Manager or by pressing "Ctrl + Shift + Esc" at the same time or by pressing "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" at the same time then you will see Task Manager.
3* Go to the Details tab on the task manager and sort by name. Find SETUP.EXE. If there are multiple ones running , then kill them all. Click on setup.exe in the list and press the delete key or the 'end task' button to kill the process.
4* Run setup.exe again . Check if it works. If not, go to next task.
5* Open task manager and check Details tab again. If still there are mutiple setup.exe, go to task-3 .
6* Right click on setup.exe in Details tab under Task manager and click Analyze Wait Chain option. This will tell you what is preventing the installation from running. Find that process and kill it.
- For Windows 7 , the Resource Monitor offers the ability to Analyze Wait Chain. Run 'resmon' to open the Resource Monitor. Identify the hung or suspended process, the Overview or CPU tab and right-click on it. In the context menu, you will see Analyze Wait Chain.
- For Windows 10/8 , it allows you to Analyze Wait Chain right from the Windows Task Manager itself, apart from the Resource Monitor. Open your Task Manager,check Details tab and identify the hung or frozen process. Right-click on it and select Analyze wait chain in the context menu.
- For Windows 11 , on the keyboard, press "Ctrl + Alt + Delete," you will see few options. To open Task Manager, select "Task Manager." Or to open Task Manager, right-click the Start button on the taskbar. Select "Task Manager" from the menu that appears, and Task Manager will be launched.
7* If still not solved, copy/extract all files in ISO to a folder in your computer and run setup.exe from this folder.

V3.9.68 lamglib,,cpp 479 & 131 Errors

Post by PaulMCFC »

Ive gone right through the Error code thread and tried everything. I deleted all my various CM 0102 game folders for various updates and wanted to start over again installing the original disk. I patched it to the .68 version and keep getting these error messages. I think it may have something to do with the path in the directory?? Any ideas?

v3.9.68 Langlib..cpp 479: Probably, you have installed previous versions of CM and/or uninstall&install the game CM0102 and/or databases several times. Or your Data folder name is not 'Data'. Or your Data folder is empty or has many missing necessary files.
Solution:
-Run your CM exe as admin and compatibility mode as Windows XP (Service Pack 3) .
-Check if your data folder name is 'Data' . Unless you specified otherwise during the installation of the game, it is like : 'This PC > Local Disk (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Championship Manager 01-02> Data .
-Check if your Data folder is empty or if any missing necessary files in Data folder by comparing it with a working data or original 3.9.68 data. Probably you did not copy Data update files onto original 3.9.68 data files. Copy Data files again, check if it works.
-If not, right click on my computer (this PC) > properties > advanced system setings > environment variables > Find the variable relating to CM3 and delete it.
-Also, delete game.cfg file in your CM0102 folder (unless you specified otherwise during the installation of the game) in 'This PC > Local Disk (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Championship Manager 01-02 ) . Check if it works.

Can it be SetupReg.exe ? Download it , extract and copy the file to the CM0102 installation folder and run it.

From Xeno's comment, this is the fix for your issue:

-If not, right click on my computer (this PC) > properties > advanced system settings > environment variables > Find the variable relating to CM3 and delete it.

That is what resolves the issue. Can you screenshot the list of environment variables?

think my old brain cant get this figured out unfortunately lol

Finally managed to figure out how to mount the ISO file in E Drive but now when i try and run my existing CM01/02 file with saved games it comes up with the following error - V3.9.68 index..cpp 5809 ??

Do i have to delete my old CM download and saved games and try to reinstall again??

Getting complicated for me lol

Mounting the CD has nothing to do with error messages. If you started the old saves on 3.9.60 then you can't play them after installing patch 3.9.68.
