i have been playing this game for about 4 months and have enjoyed it so much. the main reason i play it is for dayz. Today out of nowhere i got this error while trying to launch the game through dayz commander: wrong CD key.
Now i taught it was a commander problem so i tried launching the game normally to see what would happen and i get to the Bohemia screen and the game crashes and says: bad serial number given on setup. Arma 2 does work properly so i am thinking it has to do with OA.

I have tried the following:
1: deleting and installing both arma2 and arma 2 operation arrowhead
2: i have been in regedit and yes the 4 files that should be there are there. it does not let me edit anything in the Arma 2 OA , i have made sure the permission were right.
4: ran the program as Admin
5:verified all the files were right through steam.
6:ran steam as admin.
7: tried to start game through the directory.
8: i have tried deleting the key from regedit so when i start the game i get a new one.
9: reinstalled battle eye (just in case)
10: i have tried this forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?138564

i have speant many hours today trying to fix this. so i am hoping this can get fixed.
