    ************ JIT Debugging ************

    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

    application or computer (machine.config) must have the

    jitDebugging value set in the section.

    The application must also be compiled with debugging


    For example:


    < jitDebugging="true" />


    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

  3. @bryson So me and my friend are trying to set up a server and it gives us the following errors when we try and install the server files. "c:buildslavesteam_rel_client_win32buildsrcclientdllapplicationmanager.cpp (4146) : Assertion Failed: CApplicationManager::GetMountVolume: invalid indexERROR! Failed to install app '233780' (Disk write failure)

    app_update 233780 validate
    ". Could you please explain or try to help me on why this is happening. Thanks

  4. my mission is .sqm and i don't know how to make it to PBO…whern i search for it with the PBO open file icon it won't show and when i want to extract/pack it with PBO i can't since i don't see that option when i right click it…what should i do?

  5. I got this problem of everytime I boot the server it gets halted by steam now and forces me to log in, this used to not be a problem, i dunno whats wrong with it, everytime asking me this script which is the boot script of the server is requesting permission to run and when i hit ok it just closes and boots the arma 3 client and not the server host

  6. Thanks for the video! Unfortunately my "Message of the Day" will not work for some reason. Is there anything you recommend to get this feature fixed?

  7. thanks for the tutorial, I did everything but when I connect it is stuck in the loading screen, and I can never join. My ports are correct and everything should be working fine, but it isn't.
