hi Ive just brought a new computer, moved arma 2,arma oa and arma reinforcements to remote hard drive from old computer. Loaded them up to new computer all good. I had to put original cd disk in to put resgisration number in , which i had for arma 2 and arma reinforcements, However i purchased arma oa from sprocket online, I have the registration number but am not sure how or where i should put number in to open game, If i open up REGEDIT in the computer arma 2 & arma reinforcements are there but arma oa is not. Any help would be good thanks bert

A quick re-install of Operation Arrowhead should fix it. It only takes a few minutes.

....that's all folks....!

I have installed it, but when i try to play arma oa i get error 'bad serial number given in setup' . arma 2 and arma reinforcments play fine , because i put the cd disk in to be albe to install there registration numbers, I have no cd disk for arma oa because i purchased it as a download, but i do have a serial number for it, I just dont know how or where to install the number to the computers regsistary,

Added 21 hours 30 minutes later:

My down load was sprocket , but my monthy down load quota is very poor at the moment thats why im need to move game like im trying too, I have six updater on my old computer still, would it help if i moved that over aswell?

If you still have it installed on the old machine, just goto
start, run , regedit, hkey_local_machine, software (or for win64bit)
start, run , regedit, hkey_local_machine, software, win64node (node something anyway)
Find your bohemia folders and right click to select export
Save them as unique names (anything.reg) then move them over, and just double click to install to the new registry

note you have to type regedit and hit return - plus you may need to edit the directory paths if they are different, either in the 'anything.reg' or in th regeditor

....that's all folks....!

Thanks for that paly, I gave that a go, however when i exported it to the new registry it went to local_machine software, but not on to win64node, I supose that happened because it came from old computer which was 32 bit, when my new computer is 64 bit, Could you tell me how i go about moving it in the registry Or do i have to edit the path first, I see you metioned to edit the directory path but im unsure how to do it, cheers bert

OK. What you need to do is this...

Find an application on your new pc registry ,that resides in software, win64node and export it (as lets say, demo.reg)
Open it in Notepad.
Open one of the Arma.reg files you exported from the old PC.
Look for and copy & paste the directory structure
You should have had two Bohemia folders to export, do it for both.
Notice how when you edit registry files the path has double// just copy as best as possible.
If you mess up just delete the registry folders and have a second go.

As long as you don't delete the registries on the original PC you shouldn't get into trouble.

Alternatively, post the text (of the registry.reg opened in Notepad) here and I'll edit it for you.

WARNING!!!
DO NOT include the Game Keys !!! if you do post it here !!
Just replace that bit with **** ok?

Addendum (I like using big words :-P )

I reckon you'll get it though. Either editing whilst in the registry, the correct path, or in Notepad. Further, when saving in Notepad, remember to add the extension .reg and Save As 'All File Types'
