This may be a stupid question, but is there any way I can have the campaign,units,maps etc. from Operation Arrow head combined into the original ARMA 2?
I've tried mods but they make the lists in the editor very messy and confusing.
Thanks.

E:\CO\arma2oa.exe "-mod=E:\CO;Expansion;ca" -nosplash -skipintro -world=empty

Assuming you have ArmA2 and OA both installed to E:\CO

Right click on your desktop and choose "New" then "Shortcut".

Paste that code in my previous post in as the Location.

Type in ArmA 2 CO as the Name for the shortcut.

Click Finish.

Double click the new ArmA 2 CO shortcut on your desktop.

Enjoy.

You're welcome! Did it work for you? I'm pretty sure that's where Steam puts everything, but it might be different for you. If it didn't work, let me know and we can try to get it working in another way.

Some info how to combine these games can be found here:

Or, if you prefer you can choose to reinstall.
First you install Arma 2!! Than you install OA inside the Arma 2 folder, by default OA will detect the Arma 2 folder automatically so if you just don't change the destination folder during the installation of Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead all should go by itself :-)
