Issue downloading Live Profile starting Fallout 3


after a fresh system install of Windows 8.1 I reinstalled my Fallout 3 copy.

When I start the game the savegames don't appear although they are saved in my documents in My Games/Fallout 3.

So I logged into windows live and while downloading the profile I get the message that an update must be installed. I click on ok and when still at the beginning of the loading bar I get an error that the update cannot be installed and to contact It gives the error code 0x80072751, but I cannot find a solution for that code here.

Any idea on how to solve the issue?

Hi LTDAngelo,

You may be better off posting this in the Games for Windows LIVE PC Support forums found here.

I say this because this section of the forums is mainly used for issues with Xbox 360 games. The folks in the department linked above are all for the GWFL PC side of things and might be able to assist you with this error message you're getting.

Thank you!
