404Games DayZ Installer/Updater - V2

We wanted to make something that allows you to always get on our server, and this in-house tool does exactly that. You simply run the installer and run the 404DayZLauncher, you click the Discover button and wait until it finds your arma2 folders on your machine (works for steam and retail installs on all hard drives). Once it has found your game directory you click 'Update Arma2 Beta' and it will download the beta that the "DayZ EU #404" is currently running and even install it for you. Then the same again for the 'Update @DayZ Files'. Once you have done this DayZ will be installed/updated.

We have even added a nice button to create a Shortcut on your desktop for DayZ. It simply takes your game directory and runs the game with the DayZ Mod command line. (Its better than running the crummy bat file)

The application generates an icon using your game install path to load dayz in arma2 for you.

Extreme Dev Version - Has Custom Arma2 Install Path Support

Please only download this if you want to help me test the development of this application or know about computers in such a way that if it stops working you uninstall and put the old version back on :)
