Alright, so right out of the gate I cannot extract the patch from the compressed file. It says 7-Zip "Access is Denied"

So, I copy the patch .exe out of the compressed file manually and I can get the .exe to launch, but upon it attempting to patch my game I get this:

Please be patient. This update may appear to take a long time to complete. It is updating and installing very large data.
ARMA 2 OA
ARMA 2 OA: Updating version 1.57 to version 1.59...
Update 1.57-1.58\COMMON\MISSIONS.PBO.BI.BISIGN.UPD cannot be applied, error Access is denied.
CreateProcess C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\BIPatch\xdelta3.exe failed.
Some error occurred during patch installation.
Patch file is probably dammaged. You may need to download it again.
Error in file COMMON\missions.pbo.bi.bisign, phase 1.


I have tried everything under the sun that I can find on the internet and think of. I have downloaded it from multiple web sites, I have emptied my windows temp files, and everything is run under admin, tried under a different admin profile in windows. . . I just have no idea what the hell is wrong with this thing. can someone help me please?


I am on windows XP professional.

Ok first off... where did you download your patch from? is your game retail or steam? or other? have you
had any troubles with patching ArmA2 before? and finally, have you made any modifications of the folders
or moved any folders etc that are needed for the patch?

You should also take a look at this to make sure your doing it right etc...

Finally, welcome to Armaholic *HI*

(sorry but im off to bed, its 7am here not slept all night, so sorry for late reply if any)

Thanks! I run the steam version unfortunately. I haven't modified any files. I cant remember if I patched the game before. I have only had it for like 4 or 5 months. I have had the recent version up until now though. Steam doesn't seem to be doing anything to update. Anyways, I thought all I had to do was run that patch executable file and it would patch itself so I don't understand any wrong way of doing it.

Primarily I have got the patch from gamefront several times. I have also downloaded from three other sources to be sure and yet no luck. Same issue...

Have you tried downloading form the official ArmA II site? also can you tell us the file size of the patch you downloaded by any chance, sounds like your getting an in-complete download.

That site just points to a buncha places to download the patch from so none of them are from the official site. The size is 528mb

Not correct if you scroll down you will see a Download button to download directly from them. is that the true file size of the files you have downloaded, not reading of the mirrored sites right?

Did you follow the .exe's advice?

Patch file is probably dammaged. You may need to download it again.

Ive heard the official steam download of 1.59 isnt available yet! people on BIS forums are asking for its
release, so maybe cause your using the patch for retail/boxed game is why its not working!

I am only saying maybe as im not sure about steam as I dont use them.

Edit: seems others are having trouble with it also here!

Steam is having issues with this patch, no idea when it will be fixed.
You can try applying the 1.59 (which you already did) but no guarantee it will work.

With the Steam version atm all you can do is wait and hope Steam is able to release the 1.59 patch as well.
Or, buy the game through Sprocket, which is 1000x times better than Steam anyway (thats my opinion) cause not only do you not have all troubles which the Steam version has, you can patch it normally and you support the dev directly :-)

Steam is updated now and working! you may download the 1.59 patch and use it.

Word from BIS developers about this was just posted on the BIS forums.
