Installing DayZ
I have bought Arma 2 CO on Steam, installed ArmA 2 and operation arrowhead (beta as well), run games to start menus with and without "Run as administrator." I have tried following loads of walkthroughs on YouTube using Six Player, DayZCommander, uk Mirror.

I have Windows 8, is that an issue? Am not an expert in computers but know how to follow instructions.When I follow the instructions on YouTube, DayZ Wiki, DayZ MOD I do not manage to reach the same pages as on, for example, YouTube. For instance, if I try to download using Six Player or DayZ Commander I do not get to a point where I can dwnload and install Dayz. It just says thank you for Downloading (I don't know what) and the only option left is to close the window.

I have tried following the instructions for the UK Mirror and torrent without success. I understand that this is probably because of my lack of expertise, but only bought ArmA2 CO to play DayZ. Can anyone help me or direct me to a walkthrough that would be suitable?

Thanks

Ok bud, hopefully I can lend a hand. you do not need the beta installed so please feel free to save yourself some lovely hard drive space (you'll need it for the Christmas sale!). I installed DayZ today and shall go through it all step by step. If you get stuck, please message me.
With both Arma2 and OA installed, go to
http://dayzmod.com/?Download
Select DayZCommander
Run it. Allow it to install etc etc and basically get it up and running.
Once you have, it should be a list of servers.
Click "Install/Update" at the top of the DayZCommender programme. http://puu.sh/1CyCt
You should see DAYZ COMMANDER - ARMA 2 - DAYZ and many more additional mods. What you want to do, is make sure the 3 listed above are up to date. To do so, simply press install, this will install the necessary update. Once all 3 look like this http://puu.sh/1CyAQ you should be good to go. Press "Done" at the bottom and go into a server. Hope this helps

Can you install dayZ without combined operations if you bought arma 2 and OA seperate?

I don't know what you did Rowan, but it's currently working. Whenever I tried to go to DayzCommander I didn't get the option to download it. But fingers crossed, am currently updating everything there was to install.

At least 1 x Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead will be started! At the first start of Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, the games are installed. Then, also updating the DayZ Commander.
