ARMA 2 Reinforcements Patch "Wrong CD Key"
I am new to ARMA 2, and I have purchased ARMA 2 "Combined Operations" and "Reinforcements" (physical DVD versions) from Amazon.com, which arrived yesterday. After installing, I attempted to patch using the 1.59 patch. The patcher updates ARMA 2 to version 1.09 and updates OA to version 1.59, but when it begins to patch the BAF and PMC add-ons, I receive a "Wrong CD Key" error. I tried to patch using the individual patchers for BAF and PMC as well, and received the same error message. I have tried uninstalling everything and reinstalling and receive the same error. Any help on this would be appreciated.

The "Install BAF and PFC Only" button on the launcher worked correctly, so my understanding is that I don't need to try that. That being said, for one of the installs I did, I tried that method to install and it gave an error message about not being able to find D:\Setup.exe or something similar.
Did you tried to uninstall everything (very tedious, i know), clean your registry base (this soft is free and works fine : http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner), then re-install everything
Yes, I have tried complete uninstall, CCleaner, and reinstall. Same problems. The most recent Install I did the following: Uninstall EVERYTHING (BAF and PMC, Operation Arrowhead, ARMA2 Base game, BattlEye), restart computer, Run CCleaner, Restart Computer, Install "Combined Operations" Disc 1 (ARMA2 Base game) then install "Combined Operations" Disc 2 (Operation Arrowhead/Combined Operations) then started up the game to make sure everything worked, exited the game, ran patcher 1.59 (Updates ARMA2 to version 1.09 and Combined Operations to Version 1.59) Then began installing the "Reinforcements" DVD. When using the DLCs installer from the patch page, I still get the error "Unable to Find D:\DLSs\Setup.dat" although the file is on the DVD in the correct location. So I reinstalled using the "Install Only BAF and PMC" button, which puts the DLC in the correct location "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma 2" and I am able to view the DLSs just fine through "Combined Operations" and play them. Then attempted to run the individual patchers for BAF 1.02 and PMC 1.01, both report "Wrong CD Key" Then attempted to re-run patch 1.59, which recognizes that ARMA 2 is already patched to 1.09 and AMRA 2 Combined Operations is already patched to version 1.59, then reports 2 "Wrong CD Key" errors when attempting to update BAF and PMC. Would really appreciate some help on this problem.
This is what i did :
-installed A2 in the default location set by the installer (C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\Arma 2)
-patched arma 2 to 1.10 - patch 1.09 is outdated
-installed A2 OA in the same location as A2
-patched A2 OA to 1.59
-installed BAF & PMC
-patched respectively to 1.02 & 1.01 (check the patchs BAF patch 1.02 should be 5252ko & PMC 1.01 should be 19084 ko - download them from a reliable source e.g : the official website) running the patchs installer as administrator might help... or not
Hope a dev. or an advanced user will jump here to help you.

I was going to suggest this also. When I did a re-install recently I got errors when I installed Arma 2 then OA then patched. I had to un-install, clean registry, install arma 2, patch it, install OA and patch it...no errors then and everything ran great.

I have had this problem for almost a week now, and it hasn't been resolved by Bohemia or SecuRom (who I have also emailed about this issue) and I am getting a bit agitated.

That or maybe you have an intrusive antivirus which doesn't like the patches executable. Did you try to disable it before patching ?
