I have just started getting this error within the last two hours. Since then I've been looking for a solution but can't find anything at all, I was hoping someone here could think of something.
When I start the game at all (XFire, Launcher, Fallout3.exe) I get a black window that flashes a few times and then pops up a little box with the error in the title. It doesn't matter what settings I use.
Specs:
Windows Vista Ultimate x64
ATi HD4870 512
AMD 4600 X2
2gb RAM
Creative X-Fi

I forgot to mention that I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game. Same error.

Try disabling Xfire, and of course updating your drivers.

My drivers are brand spanking new, and the game has worked before with Xfire on though! :\

It's Windows, man. Just because something works once is absolutely no guarantee it'll work again.

As I thought, disabling Xfire didn't work.
Any other suggestions?
