Wrong CD Key
I've been trying to log into DayZ for the past 2 days now but ever since the most recent Arma 2 update 105785 I can't log in due to "Wrong CD key"

Does this mean my key has been stolen or is it something else? I've tried Googling and any fixes I've found have not worked. Also have deleted and reinstalled the game a few times now. It's starting to get extremely annoying.

My DayZ Commander says everything is up to date but if I go to reinstall the latest Arma 2 patch it gives me the "Wrong CD Key message"

Has anyone else had the same problem with this patch or a prior patch? If so, how did you fix it?

Thanks.

Thanks for the assist, I tried that but I still got hit with the same issue when I went to install a version of ARMA 2 prior to the latest 105785 patch. I've sent an email to Bohemia about it but I doubt I'd get a response anytime soon.
