I just installed my Arma 2 and upon installing the AO I get the following error: Cannot create file. c:\Program Files\Arma 2\ARMA2Patch_1_06.exe
It happens every time. I even copied the whole dvd content to my hard drive. Same result. I am running Windows 7 X64 on Samsung SSD.
I have problems with installing BAF and PMC. Army of Czech Republic installed correctly and works fine though.
All 3 DLC i downloaded from GamersGate.com
BAF and PMC installers dont work correctly. I have error:
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information."
I have Windows 8 Release Preview.
Videocard: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series.
I tried to turn off antivirus and firewall, reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ components but nothing work.
I just bought two copies of the "Arma X Anniversary Edition". On my second PC the installation went without problems, but on my first i cant install Operation Arrowhead.
Arma 2 itself made no problem during the install progress. But with the Operation Arrowhead DVD, first comes the autostart menu then i hit install and after a short period i get an typical "all explaining" Windows crash message "Arma setup has encountered a problem.. bla bla bla" in more information it says: AppName: setup.exe AppVer: 184.108.40.206 ModName: setup.exe ModVer: 220.127.116.11 Offset: 00d4f25b
With the DVD from the second copy it says the same allthought the dvd worked on the second pc.
I got Windows XP 32 bit, AMD Phemon 2 X6, ATI Radeon HD 5770, 3.12 gb ram.
Can't even get to install.
I got a really big Problem. I actually bought "Arma 2: Combined Operations" at Amazon. As I came back from the post office I just throw the DVD "Arma 2 Black Edition" in my DVD reader. My Computer totally freezes and and a blue error sreen appeared. He booted up again and at the Windows start sign he just crashed and this repeated evertime until I just took the DVD out.
So here is what I tried out: I put a other DVD in. Worked. Nothing crashed.
Autorun blocked. Still crashes.
Save Mode from Windows. Same as allways.
Im not a Computer Pro but I can do allot if someone explains me it.
Im running Windows 7.
thx If someone helps me !
I will try out all!

Can you access another PC and copy the contents of the DVD to a flashdrive and then install from that? Alternatively see if there's an updated firmware for your DVD drive? And/or updates system drivers for your motherboard?
If someone reports an issue/complains about the Alpha etc, replying in the thread "dude it's an alpha" doesn't really help anyone! Point them to the Arma3 Alpha feedback tracker instead please!
Please do not PM or Email me directly about your CD Key issues, follow the guidance in this thread instead.
I'll try and make this as brief as i can. I just recently developed an issue that involves a Beta Patch that, for whatever reason, I installed a couple of months back. I never had an issue so I just left it alone. At least until this week.
For reasons unknown to me right now, I can no longer launch the game using my normal A2 CO shortcut and now all of a sudden I have to use a shortcut for the Beta itself. The version and Beta currently installed are 1.62.96751
The problem with using the Beta Patch is that Ace 2 does not work. It loads and all the addons for it appear and can be used, but items like Grenades, flashbangs, medical items, do not work at all. I can throw 100 grenades and a) They do not visually appear in game and b) Do not detonate.
Si my question is this, in order to remove the patch, can I just uninstall Op Arrowhead and everything else that came afterward OR am I going to need to do a complete uninstall of the original Arma 2 game also?
The reason I ask is b/c I no longer have the original Arma 2 disc, however, Operation Arrowhead, British Forces, Czech forces, etc, I bought off of GamersGate and can still download and reinstall.
Also, I'm not really in a position where i can purchase the original again at this time. If I could, I would. But I can't so that's what brings me here now. I hate not being able to use ACE, but I don't want to uninstall anything that's going to cause the entire game to not work either.
Thanks for any advice anyone has on the subject.
EDIT- Or, would i be better off installing the newest Beta Patch also? Could that work?

Beta patches should not effect in any way the current version of the game or mess with any of its files, they are located in a folder that will be loaded only if you run the included beta shortcut. Only problem that I know a beta patch has affected the game was in older versions, when running the beta uninstaller it sometimes removed core files. Best way to uninstall a beta is to just delete the beta directory inside the expansions folder. And don't install beta over beta, always remove first.
Also, I had some strange problems with ArmA2CO once and I tracked it down to a beta of ArmA2 (beta folder inside base game folder). For some strange reason the beta folder will somehow autoload and interfere with the game. Remove any ArmA2 beta.
"c:\ program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\expansion\addons\dubbingradio_epbo expected 193371979b got 164495360" points to a corrupted download from steam of game files. Select verify game cache to repair any broken files.
For "No entry 'bin\config.bin/cfigingameui/mptable.shadow" read and respond on the MPTable.shadow & pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha Thread - the only one! thread.
