Thread: ARMA II OA Steam issues

    ARMA II OA Steam issues

    I try to start the game in steam library and it just pops up with an error saying the air.pbo is too short.

    Tried to fix by running as admin and validating, did not work.

    Tried to fix by running as admin, did not work.

    Tried to reinstall the game three separate times, cleaning registry and all that good stuff, does not work.

    I tried going to the game folder in steam and running the game that way but it does the same thing.

    I did get the game to go to a splash screen once but then it gets close to the main menu, then quits to the desktop with a message box saying "Bad Serial Number Given in Setup"

    What to do?

    It very much sounds like permissions/admin problems.

    Did you try to run it outside steam yet?

    Can you post your rpt file?
