Hello there,
I d/l my full version from Direct2Drive and unzipped everything and ran the .exe and the game starts. However, after the BIS splash screen I get an error that says "Bad Serial Given". I already entered the activation code and that went through fine. I found another post for Steam users, but unfortunately I don't even have an ARMA2 folder in my regedit. :confused:

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I am having the same issue. I know how you are feeling except it was on Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead off of steam. Have you resolved your problem. If so tell me how you solved it.
