If you have the beta patch installed correctly, and it is in the Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead/Expansion/beta folder.. this is what I do for every beta patch that comes out. Copy the arma2oa.exe from your beta folder. Then, go back to the main Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead fold with the other .exe's. Rename the existent arma2oa.exe file in this fold "backup". Paste the beta arma2oa.exe app into this folder.

Log in to steam and go to the launch options for Arma. Paste "-beta=Exansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;CA;@DayZ" and "-mod=@DayZ" into the launch options without quotations. Add any other launch options you see fit (i.e. world=empty and -nosplash).. And you should be set!

You don't need to do that. You're pasting the beta into the main folder, then you're telling the game to look in the beta folder for the .exe file instead of using what's in the main folder.

You're assuming everyone is pointing to the correct executable.. Everyone isn't, that tip has helped more people then anything with this issue. I'd recommend you guys coordinate a Mumble session at this rate, I'm sure it will be much easier to solve that way.

Ok, I created the non-steam gaming using the beta.exe in the beta folder. Now what?

If you're having this much trouble with the updating of the game, you probably just shouldn't play.

Typing "-beta=whatever" is what points the game to the beta patch. Telling people to copy stuff around and replace executables is completely unnecessary. The OA beta patches don't replace the main executable because the game does not require it to. Even setting the non-Steam game to use the beta .exe is probably not required, but it works without any further hassle.
