    Bad serial number given in Setup

    I'm getting a fatal error when I start up ARMA OA through SixUpdater, stating that I gave a bad serial code. I've verified the game cache, done a reinstall, and I'm still getting it.

    Help?

    Are you setting in Game Profile of Six " Combined Arms"? Hop in help channel of Arma. Also in Six your can report this to Sickboy and he might beable to help you or link you to a solution.

    The fix was to run vanilla Arma2 once & shut down. Then run vanilla Arma2:OA and shut down.

    The reason this fixes it is because it writes to the registry when you run these for the first time. It will do the same when the game is updated.
