    Default Football manager 2012 editor cannot find data folder etc.

    Hey, just downloaded football manager 2012, editor and the crack from wb, but the editor is giving me the following error?

    "Warning: Couldn't find data folder!../football manager 2012/data"
    "Warning: Couldn't find data folder!../football manager 2012/data/sigfx" etc.
    "Error: Unable to find some essential data. Please ensure that the game is installed correctly. If the problem persists, please contact technical support."
    "Failed to find a default database to use. Please make sure your installation is not corrupt".

    The game works perfectly.

    Any suggestions? Am I supposed to place the editor in a certain folder?

    Thanks!

    Replace the Editor/special folder.xml with this one:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <!--
    This XML file is used to read special folder locations into SIOS, such as the SIOS data and the application data folder.

    Each property list represents a new folder to register.
    The "path" contains the relative path from the folder of this XML file up to the folder where the data folder can be found.
    The "name" contains the name of the special folder to register.
    -->

    <record>
    <list id="items">
    <record path="data" resource_root="true">
    <string id="name" value="app_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>

    <record path="../data" resource_root="true">
    <string id="name" value="sios_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>

    <record path="../data/sigfx" resource_root="true">
    <string id="name" value="sigfx_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>

    <!-- not a resource root, as the same folder has already been added as the sios folder -->
    <record path="../data">
    <string id="name" value="database_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>

    <!-- not a resource root, as the same folder has already been added as the sios folder -->
    <record path="../data">
    <string id="name" value="match_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>

    <!-- not a resource root, resource manager doesn't scan language files -->
    <record path="../data/languages">
    <string id="name" value="language_data_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>

    <!-- not a resource root, the updates manager will use this to find the update resource roots that are valid for the application -->
    <record path="../data/updates">
    <string id="name" value="updates_folder" translate="false"/>
    </record>
    </list>
    </record>
    And everything will load.

    delete the cache.

    here's the trick:

    1. First, you need to unhide all hidden folders and files.
    2. Then go to start -> your user name
    3. there's a hidden folder call "AppData"
    4. Click it -> Roaming -> Sports Interactive ->Editor 2012 ->DELETE the Cache folder
    5. Launch Editor again, and it works!

    IF, same problem occurs after you shut down your PC, repeat the same steps, and you can edit data anytime you want.
