Hello, I am getting this error every time and every way I run Arma 2 OA. I have tried the primary method of fixing this.

-Verify game cache for Arma 2.
-Run Arma 2
-Verify game cache for Arma 2 OA.
-Run Arma 2 OA.

Still not working.

I have re-installed both games twice.
tried everything, battleye up to date.
The latest patch.

HELP!

That explained OA, but what about if it's just ArmA 2 by itself?

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I have also been having this issue from my STEAM bought version of arma2 OA, and it appears as though my CD key has been stolen.

I don't know what to do other than email steam but it actually wont even let me delete that registry that I have selected.

I have the same issue as madcausebad. Recently my cousin and I wanted to make it fun with hacks (In our own standalone, we never actually hacked before). I downloaded something and it said it would inject into battleye. Now I cant play at all. Not even on my own standalone.
