Permissions and credits
This little program will make installing/uninstalling mods a breeze! Fallout 3 Mod Installer is a very easy to use program that supports the popular compression formats and the 2 most popular ways people structure their mod archive's (\Fallout 3\Data\ or \Fallout 3\) which makes Fallout 3 Mod Installer compatible with most mod archives around!

Using Fallout 3 Mod Installer
Simply right-click on an mod archive in windows explorer/other file manager and send it Fallout 3 Mod Installer then you're ready to install/uninstall that mod archive, alternatively you can just open Fallout 3 Mod Installer from the shortcut created in your start menu and select an archive from there.

Uninstalling a mod is just as easy as installing it was, simply select the mod archive that you've previously installed and click uninstall.

Important Notes\Issues
-Fallout 3 Mod Installer supports installing zip/7z/rar/fomod archives.
-Fallout 3 Mod Installer does not keep any logs of what is installed/uninstalled or write anything to the registry making it totally portable.
-When installing a mod if the file already exists in your \Fallout 3\Data\ folder it will simply be overwritten with NO warnings. Checks have been put in place to prevent malicious mod archives installing/uninstalling core Fallout 3 files.
-Screenshots (*.png, *.bmp, *.gif, *.jpg), fomod info and FO3ModInfo.ini found in the archive won't be installed. Note: ArchiveInvalidation.txt won't be installed either, it is an annoying thing made pointless by ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated!.
-Depending on how the selected 7z archive is compressed and how big the archive is it may take some time to display the archive's mod information, view readme's and view screenshot's.
-Fallout 3 Mod Installer uses parts of 7-Zip (7z.exe, 7z.dll) which is licensed under the GNU LGPL license.
