Wizbomb, you ve just download and set direct x, mean update?
Guys! Are there anybody who has no sound at all? it would be a big frustration to uninstall it without even 5min playing and enjoying(
no i downloaded a file from mircrosoft and where i downloaded it to i found a file called DXsetup and it will start an installation, it might fix your problem

it's an archive (compressed with installer + it's files inside)
when you run directx_mar2009_redist.exe
it then ask on EULA, click then
then choose directory where it extracts to
then in that directory choose DXsetup.exe and run it as admin
Im using a Xonar D1 and sound is fine in SP.. but in MP it crackles and pops all the time. Sometimes it gets so bad that the directional sound becomes corrupted and sounds start coming from different directions.

needless to say im gutted that the issue remains with my new card.
that and the random CTDs has left me rather disappointed. I love the game and have been playing the series since OFP came out.. but its almost imposs to play online for me.
Thanks to all helpers!!!!
Game is working. My mistake always was that when I hadran the mar_redist2009 thing, and to ARMA 2 folder began a lots of unextracted files, I deleted them and then ran DXSETUP. But then I tried to not delete those files and run DXSETUP and it works!!
EDIT: BTW my computer could easily run the whole game in Normal/High, Im talking of demo. Can my computer still run the whole game or does it even effect is it demo or whole game?
i have another computer that id like to play this game on....its a duo core processor 2.8, witch i hear isnt the best thing but what if i have a good graphics card and a shit load of memory will it help because im upgrading it with two sticks of memory witch make a gig and another hard drive with about 360 gigs of memory so ill have two hardrives. will i be able to play this game at low or medium settings? i could turn down the resalution will that help because i think arma's the coolest game out there right now but but my computer sucks(to some degree) and i cant pay for a quad core because im only 13 ive got an allowance from cuttin grass but thats it

Received the game today and will install shortly.
I notice in the read me for patch 1.02.58134 it says " DirectX 9 March 2009 is required and should be updated during the patching process automatically "
If I am doing a fresh install of the game and install the patch at the same time then I assume I don't need the March DirectX update as stated at the beginning of this post ??
