I have been having many issues with ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead ever since I tried downloading it to my PC.
I also receive the following problem:

Shaders Not Valid (mismatch of exe and data?)

If anyone could help with this, they would be my hero.

That depends on where you downloaded it from, some sources have really crap versions.

Well, I downloaded Operation Arrowhead from steam, I could verify that if you REALLY need it.

Unless you are not talking about the actual game installation?

I also have several mods that I used to have, and I had downloaded them before actually playing the game I believe, and ive made sure theres no mods being launched along with the exe.

Do you use a laptop?
Did you update your graphics drivers?

No, I do however use a desktop with 2 drives.

I have my profile for ArmA 2 OA in my documents, and something doesnt look right about it. However, whenever I try to verify my integrity cache on Steam, it only replaces 1 file. (I am unsure of what that file is).

Profile path to my ArmA 2 OA documents

C:\Users\Jaydon\Documents\ArmA 2

Remove both Arma 2 folders from your documents (I suggest you copy them first so you have a backup). Try to start the game now after you have deleted those folders.

I have backed up both folders and removed them from documents. However, still the same errors occur.

Those probably cause your issue.

Run the vanilla game and if the problem persists probably one of those is still active and/or influencing your game. If that happens i suggest you copy the custom content to another location, delete the whole game (manyually delete the installation folder!!). And re-install.
