First things first...why is this still in the Troubleshooting Section?
Good choice to pass on Steam, it adds nothing but potential problems -problems that are not needed.

You post that you are very new to the series, and if true, I'd recommend holding off on SU, ACE & ACRE until you are on stable ground with the stock program. Then slowly move on to any mods that interest you -one at a time.

Using SU is handy once you eventually hook up with a crew/clan and stick with them but if you also intend to hit public servers be aware -and make allowances for- version mis-matches that are sure to follow...not every admin is willing to update their server with every revision to ACE, etc.

ACE & ACRE are both excellent addons -and ones that you should definately look into- but only after you've got a handle on ArmA II to begin with.

There are too many cases out there of new players who dive too deep at first and get frustrated with some of the problems/conflicts that go along with adding multiple 3rd-party apps/mods to the main game and give up on the entire series as a whole.

Good luck and have fun.
