Hello, gooday and some other stuff like that. Ive actually seen quite a few of these threads but none with an outcome. So here goes. Hopefully we can sort this out this time rather than have yet another thread started just to die.
In anycase; Heres the deal. My arma has (before) worked fine, dandy and all that. I have bought it (Arma 2, Arma 2: OA, Arma 2: Army of the Czech Republic) all on steam, with the copies of Arma 2: Reinforcements on a CD Copy. What I am currently trying to do is update my Arma 2: OA to the latest (stable) BETA patch namely; 103718
This is a series of pictures what happens as I attempt an installation.
I press "Ja" (Yes) here and this pops up.
I press ok and instantly a new window comes up, this one;
I press yes again, and so it continues to update ACR.
Now the thing is that it doesn't do anything. It doesnt update to the version I need, no matter how I do it. No matter if I run it as Admin, Run steam as Admin, Do it through another updater (Six Updater, DayZ Commander for example), Close Steam and run it or anything. Ive tried to uninstall all of my armas and then reinstall. It just doesnt work.
Now there is another thing to this. As I bought the Arma 2 Reinforcements on disk I didnt have them on steam before. I saw the oppurtuinity to register them to steam and so I did (For the anniversary) and ever since that it has done me nothing but trouble. I cannot use the Reinforcements installation Utility stickied here on the forums as I no longer have a CD-Drive in my computer. Im uncertain if this is connected to the issue or not.
Note; The game runs fine when launched through steam, so theres no issues on that front. I just cannot update the latest BETA...
As you can see in the image above I do not even have the Launch BETA exe, telling me theres something really wrong going on. And this is after installing it on steam, just to be safe.
In conclusion; I'm out of ideas. I seriously do not know what's going on and I really really hope you guys can help me out here.
