Excuse my ignorance, I've been playing this game since before the expansions came out. I don't recognize a need to go back to 1.96, but if people are making this much effort, there has to be a reason. What am I missing here?

It shows wrong path and doesn't let me change. I am on windows 10, have a full installation with various mods already.
Tried copying the entire ArmA folder to the indicated directory (Programme (x86)) but it tries to write into "Program Files (x86)/ARMA Cold War Assault" which ofc doesn't exist like that....
Would be heck of a lot easier if i could just choose the installation path manually.
