  1. I know this is probably way too late for many ARMA II players, but I know there are a few lurkers, having the same issue I did, from the past year or two. After windows 10, being on my PC for a year, I could NOT get ANY games to load, via CD, ( not by steam) taken me almost a year to find, but I found it. Unknown to almost EVERYONE, Windows 10, keeps all " Admins" under a single, and final umbrella admin control. THIS is why, even if you are the ONLY Admin on your PC, you still get a red admin/security error, when installing the PHYSICAL ( lovingly kept) CDs. Most windows 10 OS does not have " GPEDIT.MSC installed, ( Group Policy/Permissions) Download GPEDIT.MSC installer. run that. After install, open up GPEDIT.MSC Go to folder " windows settings"-> security settings -> local policies -> security options. On the right hand panel, UNCHECK! This option "User account control: Run all administrators in admin approval mode." Apply/Close. LOAD YOUR GAME! Enjoy playing ARMA II/ OA/REINFORCEMENTS! again!
