    So here's my problem ,long time ago I played arma 2 combined operations and unistalled it manually,
    recently I installed arma again but operation arrowhead,so when i tried to patch to 1.6 the setup said the instalation was corrupted so I tried reinstalling arrowhead hoping this will fix the problem but this error happens : failed to load dll gameuxinstallhelper so I deleted files manually ,but still windows detects the game as it is installed so I tried uninstalling again same error appears.
    So I tried revo unistaller windows install utility cleaner didn't help ,after that I went to registry and cleaned everything with arma 2(there was only 1 file there)
    Tried restarting my computer and unistalling the game again :failed to load dll gameuxinstallhelper
    When i tried to open regedit.exe to see if everything is ok I'm getting an error 0xc0000142 and can't enter it , tried registry cleaner.. didn't help.

    I'm in deep guys help please :S

    Howdy,

    First you should not use registry cleaners as they will cause many problems.

    How are you trying to open Registry.....run box typing regedit.exe is so try just regedit

    Yea I was desperate so I tried cleaners thx on that tip, for some reason computer ran REGEDIT.EXE(file) not regedit.exe(program) so registry works when I open the regedit.exe(program),thx
    But what about arma? how do I fix that?
