Thread: [RESOLVED] Dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted

    Angry [RESOLVED] Dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted

    I'm having this problem when I try to joins lots of servers. It isn't just small servers it is big ones like XR-DAO and 7cav, but it will let me join ones I host.

    I've read about and seen that if you copy the ArmA 2 folder into the arrowhead folder it will fix it, but I have a problem I bought combined operations from Steam, so I don't have that folder. To fix it I have tried copying all files inside my common folder from inside the arrowhead folder then making an AddOns folder inside the arrowhead folder and pasting them in that. It didn't work. I then reverted back to where I was at the start and here I am can't fix it.

    Things tried:

    Fresh install of BE
    Fresh install of ArmA 2 about 4 times
    Steam validate files (Checks to see if files are missing)
    Made a copy of folders and tried to replicate add ons folder to make it work
    Ran ArmA 2 CO from steam
    Ran ArmA 2 CO from the CMD file located in ArmA 2 folder

    So I have no idea how to fix this and I don't think I have much hope of getting it fixed as I have seen a few no reply threads with the same issue. If anyone knows how to fix this combined ops purchased from steam then please post!

    you need run ARMA 2 once before running OA , that way it's registry enties are entered by STEAM
    also You don't need use the ARMA 2: CO option anymore, OA detects A2 auto, if it was ran once

    also make sure you started STEAM via "run as administrator"
