    After you changed the key you cant start up arma 2 OA trough steam anymore because it will reset the key. Instead use a program like DayzCommander or Sixlauncher to start up Dayz,

    Home › DayZ Commander
    SIX Updater: The all new Six Launcher; Click and play!

    I would recommend DayzCommander!

    f your using steam and want to Disable steam from updating your CD Key. (If you've used the CD Key Changer.)

    1. Goto start and search 'regedit'

    2. Navigate to, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Bohemia Interactive Studio\Arma 2 OA

    3. Right click the folder go to 'Permissions'

    4. Click on advanced

    5. Go to administrators and click edit

    6. Find 'Set Value' and check the box 'deny' and accept changes

    Next time you run arma 2 through steam the CD Key will not update.

    I use this method.

    Yeah basically you can only use steam if you are using the key that u had when u bought arma 2 OA. If you changed your key to any random key, you will either need the steam acount with the key, or download "DayZ Commander" which is basically a launcher for dayz that allows u to easily download/update any arma 2 or dayz maps. Good Luck!

    It works. Though i think i should point this out. Change the key, then do it. Then if your key gets banned undo the deny change key then redo it. The reason for this is because after you deny the set value the key changer stops working so you must undo the changes and redo them. Sorry its hard to explain.

    Well, i don't run through steam. But you can. It makes it so it doesn't automatically update the key. Change the key before you do it though the tutorial though.

    Undo the changes then. This method always works for me. Are you running like through the actual steam window? Try running it through DayzCommander
