Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition

fallout 3 ordinal 42 error

By xcocox posted 6th Mar 2013

I am using windows 8 and I recently installed fallout3. After installation, I tried running the game and I get this error message \" The ordinal 42 could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\xlive.dll.\r\nHelp appreciated :)\r\n

That seems to be a Games for Windows Live related error (since it appears in the xlive.dll). I would suggest to ask Games for Windows Live support about this error. But as demondean already noted, it's very likely that the game doesn't work on your machine. For many people, it has trouble running under Windows 7 already.
