    Windows 10 no longer supports the G4WL download you can get from Microsoft and using the FOSE doesn't get you around the need for having the latest version of G4WL installed either. I got past all this by first copying the Fallout.default ini located in the Fallout 3 game directory to my Fallout 3 directory in Documents/My Games and renaming it to Fallout. Then I downloaded this and put in my game directory and ran it disabling the G4WL and doing nothing else that this program will do. Works like a charm.

      Holy bologna, someone give this man a medal! Followed Crimson's little tutorial here and everything worked like a charm. Have good ol' FO3 modded and up and running on Win10 flawlessly. Thanks a ton for this one, friend.

      This does not work. I cannot start Fallout 3 without GFWL, using FOSE catches an error with ordinal 43, and this mod cannot start without having ran FO3 at least once, as there is no default .ini file. Impossible to start on Windows 10, in 2018?

      I only know of one way that worked for me on Windows 10; but it required me to purchase the game again -this time through GOG.com. (GOTY Edition).

      No more GfWL and no other trouble; only had to rid myself of a mod that was causing regular CTD's; probably because I was using an old -even ancient and perhaps now obsolete- version of it.

      This version of FO3 is a digital download, so no physical disc(s). But it's DRM free.
      Naturally it requires an account with GOG and a solid internet connection.
      I ran the ESM (and installed ESP) files through LOOT and cleaned the master files with FO3Edit.

      All I can reiterate, is that it worked for me; so my personal experience is a positive one.
      Still, maybe I just got lucky -there are few guarantees, as I've often learned the hard way.

    so,.. we need the GFWL client to run fallout 3- which none of us have installed as why we're here at this mod, so we downloaded but it said " Cannot find your FALLOUT.INI! This usually means you haven't run Fallout 3 yet, please do so before running Games fo Windows LIVE Disabler again" ok,... so meaning we have to run fallout 3 in order to install this mod/program, yet... we cant and have to install the GFWL client inorder to run the game and install this mod, a mod that let's us run fallout 3 without GFWL.....

    Spoiler:

    The GFWL client is removed by microsoft, FOMM need fallout.ini to work, FOSE has 0 downloads.. i also dont have my games file .....what can i do?
     


     
    Search "Games for Windows Live" with GOOGLE.  I just got 458,000,000 results in .6 seconds.  One of the results is for a direct download of GFWL.  
     
    No "My Games" folder.  Search your computer.  It could also be named "GAMES".

    I tried it, but it said I don't have the fallout ini file, because I havent run the game yet... which I can't because I need this fix. Sorry, I dont know about computers, how can I go around this?

    Download and install the GFWL client.

    Or, download and install FOSE.

    Or, download and install FOMM.

    I run this, and it says "Cannot find your FALLOUT.INI! This usually means you haven't run Fallout 3 yet, please do so before running Games fo Windows LIVE Disabler again.'
    I can't run Fallout 3 without this.
    Am I missing something here?

    Fallout 3 wouldn't launch for me without GFWL, but this mod allowed me to install GFWL, block it, then uninstall GFWL and my game works fine. Thank you for creating this mod so I can play fallout without having to give my computer Aids. <3

    I hope everyone understands that if you're downloading the game from Steam, the game no longer requires GFWL, so you don't need this fix anymore.

    Also, I believe FOSE removes this requirement as well. The less stuff you need to install to make your game work, the better.

      I JUST re-downloaded FO3 and it has GFWL. But I'm about to look into this FOSE you speak of.

      You still need this to avoid crashes.

      This is also literally the easiest "mod" to install ever. You drag it into the game's folder and run the program, then click one button and close it...it's hardly an extra hurdle just get the game working perfectly.

      I've honestly never used this fix as I launch my game with FOSE using FOMM.

      I re-downloaded from Steam (GOTY) and it was still complaining about the missing DLL. Tried FOSE first and nada. Did the Fallout.ini trick with this program and now it runs. It's still relevant.
