Missing xAudio2 file(s) & sound issues
Everyone receiving ARMA 2 crash or fail to start due to xaudio or x3daudio etc.
install the DX9 redist as admin! (this including VISTA and Seven users !)
February2010 (latest for Windows XP SP2 and 2000)
after extracting this file run dxsetup.exe ! (as admin)
same DirectX folder is also included with both ARMA 2 Demo and ARMA 2 full on STEAM
STEAM\STEAMAPPS\COMMON\ARMA 2 DEMO\DirectX\DXsetup.exe
STEAM\STEAMAPPS\COMMON\ARMA 2 \DirectX\DXsetup.exe
X-Fi owners make sure You get latest Creative Labs drivers from 26.6.2009 for WindowsXP or for Windows 7 from 16.6.2010
Audigy owners make sure You get latest Creative Labs drivers from 26.6.2009 or newer
Realtek owners make sure You get latest drivers 2.27 or newer
HINT: TO prevent SOUND distortions please use AUDIO volume levels equal to default or lower !
HINT: TO prevent SOUND distortions please try disable X-Fi CMSS-3D/SVM !
Note: there is no OpenAL in ARMA 2, period !

DX10 in Vista is not affected by this update,
VISTA have DX9+DX9EX and DX10
first make sure You have Vista Service Pack 2 (is now released for all languages)
then retry install of this DX9 march 2009 update
Where do you extract the files too? I dont really understand the ArmA files or what?
EDIT: scratch that I am an idiot. Nevermind

You`re talking about just crashing? I ve got no crash,but just no sounds.At all. Checked out Direct x, drivers seem to be all right cause it works fine in another games. But sound won`t work in this game for me!( Did anybody have this problem?
no we are talking about the game wont even start, just be happy you can play it its everything ive been looking for in a game
maby ill have better luck on the steam version on my other computer

Is anybody getting random stuttering/static sounds while playing?
I'm running the game through an Asus Xonar Essence STX and I can pick up auditory anomalies quite easily with my headphones and it can ruin the atmosphere.
My most obvious example was when driving the tank in the boot-camp mission, the engine sound would cut in/out unless I was accelerating at some points.
OMG I JUST GOT THE GAME TO WORK AND IT FRIGGIN' ROOOCKS!!!!!!!!!! but the demo doesent have everything i had wished for, if yall are wondering what you have to do is download directx9 redlist and where you downloaded it to you look for a file called directxsetup and boom ARMA2 WORKS! this game is so realistic
