Default How do I manually enter the serial?

I had to reformat my system drive. When I try to start arma2 it now tells me I have an invalid key. For obvious reasons I dont want to Download and install 8 gigs of game again. Is there any way to manually enter the key for arma2 and arma OA in my game that is already on the drive?

I got the game off gamersgate.

Not a clue about Gamersgate, but when installing from DVD, I am asked for key during install.

The serial key is encrypted when it is saved to your computer. You wont be a able to edit the cd key manually. I think you are going to have to reinstall.

Perhaps someone else has a solution

Unless you have a backup of the registry entries I'm afraid there is no other option than to reinstall.

CD or Steam? If on Steam, start Steam as administrator and then start up Arma 2 from steam once and then start Operation Arrowhead from Steam once too.

If from CD, as said, unless you saved the registry entry for the cd-key (which is in hexadecimal format), you will need to reinstall to get the correct registry entry back where it needs to be.

You don't mess with the Zohar!

There is a program out there that claims to replace the cd key for ARMA 2.


It was probably designed to change a bad key once discovered, so I won't post it. If you search you'll probably find it.
