    So after spending hours browsing the internet for a fix, and none of them working, i have had to come and ask here.

    The issue im getting is while trying to run Arma 2 Combined operations i get the following error "This game is currently unavailable (Application running)

    This only happens while running CO, Both Arma 2 and Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead work fine.

    Steps so far:
    Exited steam, restarted computer

    Verified integrity of the Arma 2 OA and Arma 2 files.

    Run Steam in admin mode

    Run both Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA in admin mode

    Tried steam beta

    None of those worked.

    the only reason i havent tried reinstalling is because of internet usage.

    I have the same problem, just launch Operation Arrowhead for now (as a temporary situation) then wait for Steam to fix I think. They recently performed a shuffle around of all the files to a "more efficient format" which might be the reason for our predicament.

    If you go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead there is a file in there named "_runA2CO.cmd", if you run that it will launch combined ops without any issue.
