This article has information about Fable III for PC activation and how to resolve common activation errors
Before Fable III can be used, it must be activated by connecting to the Internet. The game activation occurs after installation. The initial connection to the Internet is required to connect to SecuROM database in order to verify your license validity. As soon as the license is verified, you may play at any time without an Internet connection. Re-installation of the game will require that this process is repeated.
Note: SecuROM is a piracy prevention application. This application may install additional components on your computer during Fable III setup. In order to protect the game, any tampering with the copy protection or renaming of the game’s executable may cause issues when you load or play the game.
