Exclamation Change CD-Key to Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead

Hi
Yesterday i was banned by BattleEye in Arma 2 OA (why? i don't know too) so i wanted to change my cd-key for my steam account becouse i don't want to make another account. I already changed encrypted key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE//Software//Wow6432Node//Bohemia Interactive Studio//ARMA 2 OA/ but it changes everytime to default( i mean cdkey that banned) when i start up game. And i tryed in directory HKEY_CURRENT_USER//Software//Valve//Steam//TestApp33930 It changes to default too. What i need to do to change my cd-key?

You could try to set the registry keys to read-only (-> google). If that won't work you have to contact support so they can delete your game license so you can purchase a new one - via Steam ofc.

So i asked support to delete game from account, maybe they not understand my question? They said that i need to make another account to buy Arma 2 OA with new Cd-key, but i don't want.

Quote section 13(iirc) of the EULA at them, most support staff are unaware of the clause that allows you to request the game to be removed.. shocking really but it does highlight the training Valve staff must have.
