I put my old harddrive in this computer and compied all of the arma files to my new Steam directory. I then instructed Steam to install/download Arma 2/OA, but the download process went very quickly as expected as Steam realized most of the needed files were already there. I verified the cache many times and it reports that one file failed and will be redownloaded. But only a 1.4kb download is made at that point and reverifying the cache again yields another fail and another 1.4kb download.

EDIT: Oh and another interesting thing. If Steam is running when I try to apply the beta patch, I get a different error saying "wrong cd-key".

I also see this behavior across multiple systems and with both Arma 2 and OA, as does a friend. Perhaps Steam has corruption in its Arma 2 and OA files?

I've upgraded to Windows 8 and installed Steam. All games, settings and previous Steam directory was saved before. Now I've checked hash for Arma 2, Arma 2: OA and Arma 2: PMC. I try to install the latest beta patch in order toplay DayZ, but I receive an error about wrong CD-key. I still can see my key in Steam, but it seems it doesn't write it to register. How can I fix it and install beta patch?
Run the game once (without mods or beta, obviously). That generally works.
