    cant install games for windows live for fallout 3

    Hey guys, so I've been trying to play fallout 3, but unfortunately that means I have to install games for windows live, and it wont work. i download the installer and run it, it says success, then I launch it, and it tells me that it's not installed. Then it sends me to a page to download the installer i've already downloaded. This is getting quite annoying, can anyone help me?

    That worked, thanks! But now, when I start the program it says "Connection error: can't start the program. There may be a problem with your internet connection or the live service." My internet connection is fine though.

    have you allowed GFW through your firewall?

    Have a look though the following article too, which gives a bit of info for fixing online connectivity problems and also contains a link to the 'troubleshooting GFWL connection problems' on the official xbox website:

    Hmm, I tried all the things listed in that article, none of them made a difference. On a side note, it mentioned a mod that would make it not use gfwl, but when I tried to install it, it said that a fallout 3 ini file was missing. Thanks for the repsonse, though.
