Hi all I need some help.
I am using latest ARMA 2 beta version and when I do an update in SU and then tick the beta box and create a desktop short cut.
If I launce the game via short cut and look at bottom right of screen the beta version never matches the version I installed.
I deleted all versions of the old beta but still six dont see the latest version I installed.
Try to delete the beta folder, it resides in the expansion folder.
Also remove any arma related folders and files from your VirtualStore folder (C:\users\yourname\appdata\local\VirtualStore)
Then reinstall the beta with SU and try again. Also make sure you recently synchronized with the SU portal.

Hi thanks for the reply.
I did delete the BETA folder BUT I did not delete the files from the VirtualStore folder so will try that all so did not synchronize SU so thanks will try that ASAP.
Still no luck.
I deleted old BETA
I have looked in C:\users\yourname\appdata\local\VirtualStore and I have nothing in there (show hidden files is enabled)
And I have resynced SU but still shows an old version of ARMA in SU not the latest version.
SU shows 89223 and when I start ARMA it to shows 89223 I have created a desktop short cut in SU BTW this is how I have all ways done it but now it just dont work .

There was nothing wrong with my particular system, unfortunately this problem affects anyone with a recent GeForce card and any drivers from last year through February this year. Specifically, it's an issue with Windows 7 and how it monitors the GPU, when the card powers down for power saving, sometimes W7 thinks the card drivers have crashed, and reboots them (known as a 'TDR' problem). I guess the process is similar when using Six Updater (card powers up and down a lot when switching views/idling).
Might be important for you to know for future reference! Also, a fix would be to allow software rendering.
According to http://blogs.msdn.com/b/jgoldb/archi...ge-in-wpf.aspx
you can disable the HW rendering yourself:
Otherwise I could deal with a setting in the program;You set the global registry key. E.g.:
"DisableHWAcceleration"=dword:00000000 )I suspect the issue affects other WPF programs as well so seems to make sense to disable it globally instead.RenderOptions.ProcessRenderMode = RenderMode.SoftwareOnly;
I've been curious why when SU updates it uninstalls and reinstalls the entire program insted of just updating the old files?
and also why you're not allowed to close the program when its 'busy' other than ending prosess?
It only does an uninstall and full reinstall for Major Upgrades. Major Upgrades are sometimes needed to replace files that have no changing Version id's, or other major changes.
Minor upgrades are the ones usually performed, and these just deal with changed files.
Dealing with MSP's (patches) I find too cumbersome for the time being.
You may not exit when busy because it would have unforeseen consequences, data corruption etc. Close anyway on your own peril.
For starters, any changes made to settings or records applied during this session, will be lost.
Some actions, like executing the updater actions are cancelable. Press the abort button and then exit gracefully once aborted.
