So you bought a non-Steam version of ArmA II? Installing the alpha version of DayZ is no easy task, as it is an alpha. This guide should help those who bought through Retail, Bohemia Interactive’s store, or GOG.com (the version this guide is based on).
To be clear, DayZ mod requires ArmA II: Combined Operations which contains ArmA II and the expansion pack, ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead. You could also use ArmA 2 Free + Operation Arrowhead to play DayZ, but it isn’t recommended (via DayZ Wiki)
I’ll be covering the GOG.com version of the game, but it will apply to the other Non-Steam Versions of ArmA II to help get DayZ installed.

The civil war in Bystrica is at its end. But it’s not the end of fear for the people. War criminals like Colonel Miyovic still terrorize the country with their militia looting and murdering civilians. Forces of the Czech Republic Army are sent to restore order.
After restoring partial order in Takistan; Allied forces were able to send in a small number of provisional reconstruction teams. Unfortunately local rebels are still planning operations to damage the reconstruction process. However, Czech forces are operating in the area and that should help change the status quo.
