Hello. Check twice the CD-key provided with game. It's said that 2 and Z are almost impossible to tell apart. If it's not the case, try contacting publisher.
Also maybe firmware upgrade of your optical drive is able to solve it out.

also try replacing the O's with 0 (zero)

Take special care with the following characters:
2 <> Z The Z has an additional dot in the upper left corner.
N <> M Those two are really nasty! They basically look the same, try all combinations.
I suggest you write the correct code down once you managed to figure it out. ;)

Usually there is no letter "O", most likely they are zeros.

Now the installation of Arma II runs. Thank you all.
My whole family tried out various versions of the CD-Key.
We solved the problem !!!
Instead of "P" now i used "F" and the Installation began to run.
To others that might find serial letters/numbers online hard to see:
1. A trick on sites is to hold CTRL down and at the same time SCROLL your mouse wheel. This will ZOOM IN / ZOOM OUT websites and you can easily see what it says. (Some sites dont support this).
2. If you can COPY/PASTE the serial code you can paste it into the NOTEPAD and see if its clearer text. Even enlarge if needed. Mark the serial and press CTRL+C. Then open notepad and press CTRL+V.
