    Issue updating Arma2 reinf

    Hello All,

    I hope you could help me.

    I have tried Arma2 free and liked to I bought on amazon the complete version Arma2 reinforcement.
    Of course every one is playing under the most recent patch.

    I have installed the 1.60 patch and now when lauching the game i get a pop up message: "failed to load file C:\program files\bohemia interactive\arma 2 reinforcements\BAF\addons\air_d_baf.pbo - decryption of headers failed."
    and then another pop up after a black screen "bad serial number given in setup".


    I have tried 4 times re install it and im sure of my serial number.. Im strugglin and cannot find any solution online..
    I have bought a game but I'm unable to use it now..

    Ps: it was working fine before patching...

    Arma 2: Reinforcements is not a stand alone game.

    Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead is a stand alone game.

    Arma 2: Reinforcements is an add-on to Operation Arrowhead.

    You should first install Operation Arrowhead.

    That of course is wrong!!

    Arma 2: Reinforcements brings to the Armaversum two new factions - Her Majesty's Armed Forces and private contractors. Play it separately or combine with original Arma 2: Combined Operations
    However, you can play it standalone but you can not combine Arma 2: Reinforcements with Arma 2: Free.
    On holiday till the 25th.....dont expect replies to PM's or updates as how I used to do it until than!!!

    The most stupid part of my Arma 2 life is reading the information!


    The Arma 2: Private Military Company is the addon for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and/or Arma 2: Combined Operations. It cannot be played seperately and does require the original game in order to be played

    The Arma 2: British Armed Forces is the addon for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and/or Arma 2: Combined Operations. It cannot be played seperately and does require the original game in order to be played.

    Arma 2: Reinforcements brings to the Armaversum two new factions - Her Majesty's Armed Forces and private contractors. Play it separately or combine with original Arma 2: Combined Operations for ultimate military combat experience.


    Actually, BAF and PMC originally were both add-ons to Operation Arrowhead.
    Afterwards they were merged into one DVD, named Reinforcements, I expect to increase sales.
    Mysteriously I missed the point the Reinforcements became a stand alone game!
    OOOOOOPS!
