I've decided to open another topic, since I guess the problems with activation are gone (I just have to keep retrying, with the OA disk, not the Reinforcements one) until it acepted. Know it doesn't ask for it anymore.

The problem is that the DLCs aren't available ingame. An error message appears when I launch the game:

Failed to load file "pmc|addons|air_pmc.pbo" - decryption of headers failed.

The game launches anyway. But I have no PMC or BAF new maps, missions and campaigns.

If I go to the "Expansion" option in the main menu, both BAF and PMC are installed and enabled.

My guess is that error is related to this problem.

Is there a fix for this, please?

This happens when you simply copy the folders over into another install without actually installing the DLCs.

I've used the "Arma 2: Reinforcements"'s DVD installer.

Anyway, I think I found a fix. I've tried to run it as an administrator, and it's working now. :)

Yeah, I used that, with no success. The error apeared always.
But the "run as administrator" solution has, apprently, solved the problem.
