Bethesda should've patched this version better on Win7 or Win8.
It IS a classic and has made so many revenue so you!!!
Down vote until a better patch is out.
For now, you have to do the following thing from the link:http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/20371/?tab=2&navtag=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nexusmods.com%2Ffallout3%2Fajax%2Fmodfiles%2F%3Fid%3D20371&pUp=1
Making Fallout 3 work on Windows 7 & 8
Getting Fallout 3 to run on win 7 and 8
Step 1: Copy the D3D9.dll from the “Source Files” Folder into the main Fallout 3 Directory (Not the Data directory)
Step 2: Right click on the “FalloutLauncher.exe” and “Fallout3.exe” and go to properties.
Step 3: For both “FalloutLauncher.exe” and “Fallout3.exe” right click and go to properties and set the compatibility mode to Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
MAKE SURE THAT FALLOUT 3 IS NOT OPEN FOR THE NEXT STEPS
Fallout 3 Config File Editing
Before you try below copy the “Fallout_Default.ini“ file included in the “Source FIles” Folder and place it into your Fallout Directory (NOT THE DATA ONE)
Manually Editing the config file if the above doesn't work.
Step 1: Open up the Configuration file in Notepad in the fallout 3 directory, (Which should be named "Fallout_default") press Ctrl+F and find the following line of text. NOTE: THIS IS CASE SENSITIVE
You must change this to:
Step 3: Directly underneath the changed line of text, create a new line and type:
Step 4: Save the config file and then close. Then try to launch Fallout 3.
These steps are basically telling the game to launch using just 2 cores. This way it will make sure that the game will not freeze due to errors trying to find 'outdated' cores.
This fix will usually solve your problems, however if this has not worked and the game is still crashing then try these additional steps:
-Uninstall Fallout 3, disable .NET 3.1 under 'Turn windows features On or Off', then reinstall.
-Renaming or deleting the music folder inside the Fallout 3 folder apparently helps as well somehow?
Now it should work
GOT FOSE get it to run on win 7 & 8 here
Step 1: Right click and go to properties. Then go to compatibility mode and set it to windows XP (Service Pack 3) and check “Run as Administrator”
