Thumbs down Trouble starting game

--------------SOLVED-----------------

Now, i know many others have SIMILAR issues, but none like this.

I have both Arma 2 and arma 2 OA on STEAM.

I installed both and it works fine.

When i try to install ArmA 2:PR, first when i installer PR, i got a error when i choosed the directory, which was: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2

But when i choose : C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead

It works.

But the second error is when i try to start the game it says :

Unable to start Project Reality: Arma 2!

Arma 2 is not installed or the installation is corrupted.
Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead is not installed or the installation is corrupted.

Reinstalling the game(s) may fix the issue.


I have validated through steam and it still doesnt work.

I have tried that reg fixer or whatever it is, result is :

Critical: entire registry key missing, game must be reinstalled
and
Path not specified


All i had to do was to find the folder i installed it into and go via that .exe instead of that on the desktop... So in other words, the shortcut is broken.

I am in EXACTLY the same boat as you are, this sucks My only difference is that I have OA on steam and A2 on CD.

Same codes, and same reg fixer results.

Likewise, except my A2 is D2d and OA is Steam

Question PR:A2 won't start?

Tried it today.
Worked great a few days before, had some nice matches.
Now it won't start up the game when I click play on Desura

Any idea what I need to do?

Jump ahead a few steps and do a reinstall. Btw you need to start PR from the icon it made.

I have tried this and deleteing the "praa.exe" and then doing a verify to reinstall it doesnt get the game to launch for me in Desura or by manually starting this program to launch it
