    Update DirectX, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en
    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enh...Installer.shtml

    Update the Game to Patch v1.10, http://www.gamershell.com/patch_download_archive_F.html

    If you are getting the error about a missing Xlive.dll file when you try to launch Fallout 3 try this,

    1.. Go to your Windows Control Panel ( Start > Control Panel ) and use the Programs and Features ( Windows Vista ) Add or Remove ( Windows XP ) option to uninstall the Microsoft Games For Windows - Live Redistribute software.

    2. Download the latest Games For Windows - Live Redistribute software, Games For Windows - Live Redistribute software

    3. Doubleclick on the XLiveRedist.msi file to start the installation of Live for Windows. Please make sure you are logged in as the Admin user on the computer, and background applications are shut down.

    Try loading Fallout 3 again.

    Check the securom site if you have any errors to do with that, https://support.securom.com/fallout3/

    If none of that works post a Screenshot of the error.

    Are you sure you "bought" the game? Such a long installation and that xlive.dll are pretty common of a certain compressed version you download from torrent sites. If you have downloaded the latest Games For Window installer, then you should have a xlive.dll in your System32 folder.

    System specs will be nice to know, too.

    Install Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0

    And then Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package

    Also if you have a codec pack with FFdshow you have to do this.

    1. Click Start
    2. Click “All Programs” (or just Programs, depending on the version of Windows, whether they’re using “classic,” etc.)
    3. Go to the ffdshow folder.
    4. Click “Audio decoder configuration.”
    5. In the left hand pane, click “Info & debug.” This is the second entry in the list.
    6. In the right hand pane, near the bottom, find a check box labelled “Don’t use ffdshow in:”
    7. Check that box, and in the text box underneath (it lights up when you check the check box), add “fallout3.exe” (don’t include the quotes). If there is already something in that box, put a semi-colon ( ; ) after what’s already there, and fallout3.exe after that. Do NOT use spaces, since ffdshow will think that’s part of the filename. A valid entry would be “explorer.exe;fallout3.exe” (without quotes).
    8. Finally, click “Ok” and start Fallout 3.
