I've tried a few solutions so far to no avail. I am currently running on 1.60.8xxxxx When I attempt to install the beta patch acquired from arma2.com/beta-patch.php "1.60.93965" after the installer finishes extracting I receive a dialogue box labelled.
"Bohemia Interactive Patch"
"You have no access rights to install the application."
I'm at a total loss. I've tried re-downloading thinking it's corrupted and using a different extractor, turned off user-account control, disabled Kaspersky, run as administrator, editing the registry as described in forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?90317-!Beta-Troubleshooting-Tips-FAQs but I'm out of luck.
Possibly relevant build information:
Windows 7 Home premium: 64 Bit
SSD drive running in RAID 0 (Autocad w/ drafting projects), and HDD on it's own where I keep Steam and ArmA.
