i've been looking for a way to install the 'beta' of the current alpha when you are running Steam.

supposedly you can launch it from the starter file that is installed with the current beta, but neither that, nor simply adding the pathname to my Steam launcher resolves this issue.


any ideas?

I got the amazon version, but I update DayZ using an update tool.  You just need to point it to the directory that it needs to upload to:
