Battleye Failed to update.
I bought OA and installed. Then I bought Arma2 .......then I uninstalled OA, then installed Arma2 then reinstalled OA. Playing OA MP is fine but when I join an MP game of Arma2 I get kicked telling me that Battleye failed to update. I downloaded the 1.05 patch and extracted the Battleye installer and ran it. There is now the battleye folder in Arma2 with the DLL files...........but I still get kicked from MP games even though I downloaded the latest files from the Battleye website. Does anyone have any ideas as I would like to play some Arma2 MP.
I tried again last night and noticed other players were being kicked with the same message. Can anyone help me?

If your Vista / Win7 make sure you run your game exe as administrator (via properties of your game icon) currently in those O/S systems battle eye will kick you if its not set.
Its not related to "failed to update" initially but most people who have been kicked from servers via battle eye for no good reason repeatedly normally means they need to do the above.

Tried that file and still getting kicked. I did notice that when I see the browser it tells me that patch 1.07 is now available even though my version is 1.07. Plus when I join a coop it tells me that there is a missing or removed file.
I must say that the support from BIS regarding this is pretty poor. There was not much response on the foums plus my email never got answered. Another thing is that the patch 1.0 to 1.07 missing the Battleye installer is also lame. There is no mention apart from being buried on these forums about how to overcome it. On the Battleye site you can oly download the .dll files and not the installer. Plus the patch is quite old now and there hasnt been a change to included Battleye.
Anywhooo rant over. I managed to fix the prob by uninstalling Arma2 and OA then reinstalling Arma2...........applying the all version patch and find the Battleye installer. Unfortunatley I had to work this out myself. Perhaps a sticky would ne nice.
BUT thanks to those who posted a reply anyway.
Still more battleye errors. It was kicking people from our server, saying not responding, when the people were fighting right beside us. Too bad when software developers ignore their so called protection.
You don't need the BE installer. The BEClient.dll is enough. If you had followed the exact instructions on the website, it would have worked.

So why don't you report it? Could you please contact me directly if you are sure that these kicks are not the result of game crashes?

Hi........I cant seem to find instructions on how to install. All I could find was place this file into your Battleye folder. That doesnt really help people who have installed 1.0 to 1.07 patch which doesnt include the Battleye installer. Where does it say create a folder in the arma2 directory and name it BattlEye? Where are these exact instructions?
