Failed To initialize battleye service:Driver Load Error (1450)
When i go to launch Arma 2 OA i get the battleEye screen and this pops up: Failed To initialize battleye service:Driver Load Error (1450)
I have verified game cache, uninstalled Arma 2, and OA also uninstalled Dayz Commander, tried running everything as admin and nothing seems to help, i was playing on the 64bit crusaders server, logged off for a restart and that is when the problem began, no idea how to fix this issue. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks for your time and an open ear.

Ok, guys I fixed it.
Go to http://www.battleye.com/downloads/
and get a version of BE suitable for your windows.
Go to C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Battle Eye
delete everything from there and paste a downloaded file.

Yea, i deleted the files out of C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Battle Eye, verified game cache on steam, and now it's working.

So looks like they've come out with a hot fix.

I found this on a steam thread from germany. Had to convert it to english but im trying it right now.

Here are times all the steps that I have done so in order to get Arma 2 OA to walk again .
Only works with the following error: Failed to initialize BattlEye Service : Driver load error ( 577 )

Step 1 : Firewall check not blocked the BattlEye is
Check Arma 2 and Arma 2 OA on error : Step 2
Step 3 : Windows update
Step 4 : Graphics Driver Update

Hello,

please try a complete reinstallation:

At first, delete everything you downloaded in relation to the game. That
means to delete all additional content, software, utilities, addons,
mods, mod launchers. Search your downloads for the installers for this
software and content and delete them too and if there is any game
related folder in your documents, delete that folder as well. Please do
not install anything unless you are directly instructed to until the
issue is solved.

After that please start a clean reinstall of Arma 2 CO:

1. Uninstall OA (right-click on the game in Steam Library and select
'delete local content'), do the same for Arma 2.

2. Delete "<steam>/steamapps/common/arma 2" and
"<steam>/steamapps/common/arma 2 operation arrowhead" folders and Arma
2's shortcuts on your desktop (if any). Search your computer for all
folders containing ARMA 2 in their names and delete them. Then reboot
your computer.

3. Open Start menu and type this directly into the menu (in Windows XP,
you will have to click on "Run" first): regedit

4. Press Enter.

5. In the regedit window, click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

6. Press CTRL+F to bring up search.

7. Look for "Bohemia Interactive" (without the quotes).

8. Delete all entries with "Bohemia Interactive" in their names

9. Exit the regedit, reboot PC.

10. Run Steam as Administrator (right-click on the Steam icon and click
on "Run As Administrator") and make sure that you are able to view all
your ARMA 2 products CD-keys.

11. Install Arma 2.

12. Run Arma 2 once.

13. Install Operation Arrowhead.

14. Run Operation Arrowhead.

You shouldn't have any problems and should have both OA and Arma 2
content available, at this point you have the highest official version
of the game, in case you have BAF or PMC, install them now and run ARMA
2 OA once. If you have ACR, please follow this guide:

Any installations related to the game and not listed above are at your
own risk and we may not be able to provide you with any support in case
of modified installation. (including any additional content, Betapatch,
mods, launchers and utilities)

In case the problem with BattlEye installation persists, please contact
BattlEye support directly:
