Windows 7: Fallout 3 Downloadable Content...?

Fallout 3 Downloadable Content...?

Hey guys, I've been browsing for a problem to the Fallout 3 downloadable content problem, and I think I have found it. Sadly, because I'm using Windows 7, I have absolutely no idea what is going on. In order for me to play the recently released Operation Anchorage DLC for Fallout 3, I need to find ...

C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Xlive\DLC

OR

C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\XLive\DLC

I checked my computer, program files, user name file, EVERYTHING and I CANNOT find this folder or any of the folders similar. IT's really pissing me off that I paid $12.50 and I can't even find the file Games For Windows downloaded into. In order for me to play the DLC, I need to move 3 key components in the folder above to my Fallout 3 folder. I have found my fallout 3 folder, but not the damn DLC FOLDER!! Please help me as soon as you guys can

These directories are normally hidden by default.
Select show hidden files and protected files.
You should be able to find them now.

you should have gone to mega games and downloaded the nocd patch it bypasses the windows live crap and you dont even need to enter your product key.

Or copy these files straight into:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\Data

Anchorage -main.bsa
Anchorage - Sounds.bsa
Anchorage.esm

and select anchorage.esm from the data menu in the fallout launcher.

Ok. I did everything you guys suggested. I was so excited when I finally restored Windows 7 to a previous time and fixed some things up, but when I clicked on the Anchorage.esm check in the Data Files part of the launcher, nothing happened. I saw that it was checked, and just to be sure, clicked on Data Files again. It popped out not checked. Well I go "ok...maybe it's just like that". Well I start up Fallout 3 and wander around for 4 hours. No Operation Anchorage. This...is starting to tick me off. I don't know what could be wrong

So the anchorage.esm is not staying ticked in the data files box?

Double check your C:\Program Files (x86)\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\Data and see if it's like this:

-anchor.jpg

Your not having any problems saving games etc? Already given permission to the save game folder?

You'll know if anchorage is working, because it only takes about 5-10 min before you get the 'signal'.

Don't worry i have the DLC and it doesn't matter if it's ticked or not missions will appear in your PipBoy(just tick them the first time)!
