Arma II Combined Operations: GreenManGaming -> Steam?

I just bought Arma II Combined Operations off GreenManGaming.com so I could play DayZ as it was $12. It sent me they keys and is making me use this "Capsule" program. The keys won't activate with Steam for some reason. I bought Borderlands 2 off GMG and the key worked for Steam.

I don't really want to use this "capsule" thing as I like to keep everything in Steam, and the download speed is terrible. With Steam I get at least 3.0MBps, and with Capsule I am only getting around 1.0MBps.

Does anyone know how to transfer it over?

Thanks,

I dont think that all GMG keys are steam - they do say what kind of DRM is present before you buy. From what I hear capsule isnt too bad, but its a hassle not having everything on the one login.

Some GMG games require their Capsule client, and Steam won't recognize them as retail copies. However, once the game is downloaded, you can just place a shortcut in your Steam library. They will install to the directory C:\Program Files\CapsuleGames. This will allow you to launch the game through Steam without needing to launch the Capsule Client (though I do believe the game needs to be authenticated through Capsule every three days or so).

Yeah, mine's installed on D: since I have an SSD. I'll probably just do that then. Thanks,
