The game keeps on crashing all the time!

I bought Fallout 3 yesterday, and what do I see? I can't even start playing! I get the menu and so on, but when I start the game (new game), it crashes! So I went to my friend google to see if he could help. He told me about this patch, so I downloaded it, and after processing the stuff, I got a menu and i pressed "Install" but then it said that Fallout 3 did not seem to be installed! x3 I also read that crashes is a global thing, but wouldn't the patch fix it? Please help! Thanks!

    If you download the patch, be sure you get the correct one. There's a difference depending on where you bought your game.
    If all fails, a complete reinstall should fix everything.

    Have you got enough space on your computer?

    Can you run it?

    Yes I have enough space (~200 GB's left or so), and I can run it very well. It autodetected the settings to "Ultra High"

    Go on K-Lite Codec Pack, then to audio config and look for the ffdshow exceptions, add fallout3.exe there and it should work!

    If not, just look here: http://www.bethsoft.com/bgsforums/

    There are two patches, so if you get to install the 1.0.15, then install the new one :D ..
