Is there anyway to play Fallout 3 without xlive?

by on April 13, 2010

Q: I got fallout 3 for my PC and I just got done installing it. When I click play it says “this application has failed to start because xlive.dll was not found. re-installing the application may fix this problem.”

I re-installed it twice and it still wont work. I tried to install xlive and it wont install. Is there a way to play the game without xlive?
