I solved it by launching Operation Arrowhead, seems it needed that to run through.

Same here I'm getting a "bad serial key given" message on both games, can't play....super lame considering I just bought them.

Edit: I restarted steam and now ArmA 2 works, but OA does not, I get two errors from OA now, 1: "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgInGameUI/MPTable.shadow'." and 2: "Error compiling pixel shader PSSpecularAlpha:0"

Run steam as administrator and that should fix this issue.
