Para, try reading the first post for this topic again, all the info you need is described there. And you want to follow these instructions for combining the games for Steam users to run the games as Combined Ops and not just regular standalone A2 or OA.
EDIT: Ok so I installed OA into the Arma 2 dir and it has automatically become CO. After I installed OA it said something like 1.10 is a later patch than 1.09. Does this mean I have patch 1.09 on Arma 2, if so, how? on the sprocket website it said that Arma 2 came with the 1.05 patch. It also says in the main menu of CO that I have V.1.59 when it says 1.52 on the sprocket website.

Just start up clean Arma2 - then you see what version
Stop Arma2 and start Arma2:OA - Then you see what version.
It don't take long time and you can then be curtain what you have.
if your Arma2 says 1.09, patch it. then start it up again before you start up A2:OA
Oh well too late for that, ACE mod works on whatever version I got, so it's all good. Thanks for the reply anyway.

I decided to purchase ArmA2:Operation Arrowhead from steam. I feel as if i have just wasted £15, as the main reason i bought it was under the assumption it would become combined ops with my copy of ArmA2.
I have tried running arma2 from its directory /programfiles(x86)/capsulegames/Arma II-PC/ and then operation arrowhead on steam, as well as trying the "run combined ops" option on steam. A cmd box appears and then the game launches, but only as operation arrowhead. I have tried running all of these as administrator: Arma2, Steam, OA in the steam directory and also _runA2CO to no avail. I find it particularly distressing as in the forum it was clearly stated by Bohemia interactive staff that i would be able to run my games as combined ops. I have also tried the manual file _junctionA2intoOA4me_vista&seven (i am running windows 7 64bit) linked at the start of this thread, im not sure if this was the correct thing to do, but as the directions are far from clear in my opinion it was the option that looked most likely to be correct. If anyone has had a similar problem and has been able to fix it, i would be most grateful for your help.
^im trying to figure that out as well except i dont have it on steam...i tried changing the cmd script and some registry keys and ive gotten it to show gmgs arma 2 in oas mod list, but it doesnt run as co, running OA with the -mod paramater doesnt work either, i tried moving gmgs a2 to armas regular path instead of theirs (including putting both in the same directory), including registry keys, and i got it to work once, but i cant seem to get it to work now and ive tried so many things i dont remember which one was the one that worked :/
can i just install both the games into one same folder?
This is what you actually have to do, Install Arma 2 first and in the same folder Arma 2 operation arrowhead.Than you should have arma combined ops shortcut created;if however not try this- http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=89731
