I am not trying to hijack this thread, as I figured it'd just be better to post my issue here as to consolidate information to try to get this resolved as best as possible.
Below is a screenshot of the issue upon launching ARMA 2 OA by itself, similar to the OP's problem:
Below is what happens after the "OK" button has been pressed,:
It continues to load:
The game starts up, the screen turns black, and then it says:
I've done the following to try to remedy the situation:
0: Run Arma 2 as Admin
1: Deleted BAF
2: Deleted PMC
3: Run Steam As Admin
4: Run the game from Steam's folder as Admin
5: Re-Install Arma OA
Here is my DX Diag, in case that'll help:
If anyone can assist myself and the OP to get this situation resolved, we BOTH would greatly appreciate it, because I, and I'm sure he as well, cannot figure out what's stopping us from enjoying such an amazing game.
I've uninstalled PMC, and installed the Beta Patch, will report as to how that affects the situation.
Installing the BETA patch, and running the following command:
does not help the situation any further. Another error message pops up, this time it says:
Upon first load (with BETA Patch enabled). And after I select "OK", it then says:
Will try installing all Direct X's...
Yeah, that didn't work either. I'm stumped.
I'm going to uninstall STEAM... And then RE-Install Arma 2, launch it, then Arma 2 OA, launch it, then install BAF, launch it, then install PMC, and launch it.
Wish me luck..... Hopefully I'm going through all this so anyone else that uses the search function will be able to locate the fix for this issue, and see the steps that it took to get to it.
Maybe it'll help out for development in the future, who knows.
If I'm breaking any rules, just delete my post and pretend I don't exist.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
OP, my advice to you is to uninstall EVERYTHING, STEAM, ARMA, EVERYTHING, COMPLETELY!!!!
Get RevoUninstaller to remove all that, and remove every single trace of Steam and Arma from your registry.
Install Arma 2 - Then Run It
Install OA - THEN RUN IT (error should come up again)
Install BAF - DO NOT RUN IT
Install PMC - DO NOT RUN IT
RESTART YOUR COMPUTER....
While STEAM is loading, on your desktop, double click the sh india tango out of the OA icon...
Run as COMBINED OPS
