Games for Windows Live link
Posted 09 August 2018 - 12:17 AM
I've started following the guide and I've noticed that the link for "gfwliveetup.exe from Microsoft" does not work.
GamerPoet's link (under his youtube video) works. So should I just use that one?
I am running Windows 7 and have Fallout 3 goty from Steam.

As long as the link leads to the right program from a good source (and there's no reason to think Poet isn't one), you should be fine.
Haven't played FO3 in a while, but I don't recall needing GFWL to play it, do you?

I thought not - IIRC, the whole thing was recently scrapped by MS or something... good riddance.

The link was included in the guide only because some versions of Windows 10 seemed to need a few of the files from it to run Fallout 3. GFWL itself hasn’t been needed in a veyr long time (if it was even ever actually needed).
ok, i was misunderstanding the intent of that instruction in the guide, then.
so, the way i understand it now is that ONLY windows 10 users should download the GFWL files because they might have problems otherwise. since I use Windows 7, then GFWL is not necessary for me, right? and therefore, the mod GFWL Disabler would also be unnecessary?
edit: eh, nevermind. GamerPoet's video says "even Windows 10 users" (should get the GFWL files).
