Serial number of Alpha Prime to register in STEAM
- date: October 22, 2012
I was given the Alpha Prime DVD by a magazine, and I would like to be able to find out its serial number so as to register it in STEAM.
Where in Windows can I see the serial number of this game after I have installed it?
ARMA 2 : Bad Serial Number Given in setup

When I try to launch ARMA II normally, It takes me to the company logo then closes my game and gives me an error that says "Bad serial number given in setup"

Now, before you say anything or try and mention something.
I have already done all of the following;
Run as Admin
Reinstalled like 3 times
Verified(When I did verify it always said that 1 file wasn't able to be validate and will be reacquired[It always says that when I re-verify it]and nothing happens)
Restarted my computer
Run ARMA2 before Running ARMA2:OA
When I do start it up I first see the loading screen with the checks and boxes, then it loads to a logo with the bohemian splash, then when I see it like a second later it pops up the message.
Not sure what else I've done but I've done A LOT and tried to fix it but nothing happened.
This happens everytime I try and start up OA, I can run ARMA2 itself fine, but it's only OA that does this every time I start it.

Okay so like many others I jumped on the Dayz wagon and found that it just wasn't ready yet so I deleted all my Dayz Mod files and reinstalled both Arma 2 and OA on steam. Arma 2 works just fine but when I try running OA I get an error that says, "Bad serial number given in setup" and it kicks me off to the desktop. I have verified the game cache several times and still have this problem, and my CD Key has always been valid so does anyone know how to fix this?

If you're experiencing any issues with the game reporting "bad serial number", please follow these steps:
1. Exit Steam
2. Launch Steam as an administrator. You can do this by right-clicking on Steam.exe (located in C:\Program Files\Steam by default) and then clicking "properties".
3. Run ArmA again

I have been experiencing this for weeks now.
I have deleted my Arma II files and Re-Installed it, but to no avail. When is start the game, it gets close to the main menu, then quits to the desktop with a message box saying "Bad Serial Number Given in Setup"

Everytime I want to start Chrome or Chrome SpecForce I get told that my Serial Number is wrong and that I should reinstall the game. What´s wrong?
You can activate this serial number on 4 more PCs.
