    sometimes freezes for me with a c++ library error, you might want to update visual C++
    Download Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Shame, it's a fantastic game once you do get it working, maybe you will get to play it eventually.

    I have the Fallout GOTY on Steam and it works fine for me, except that it crashes most of the time when I try to Alt-Tab. I just put the game in 1920x1080 windowed mode and use a 3rd-party app to force a borderless window. no crashes after that. Not sure about the OP's issue since I have never had that problem.

Fallout 3 (in STEAM) won't work for me... Fallout: New Vegas does and as far as I know they are based off the same engine... so that strikes me as odd. The Fallout LAUNCHER works, but when the launcher tries to run the game it croaks. I get the famous ordinal pop-up: The ordinal 42 could not...
