Arma will not open from my shortcuts and I can't load my workshop stuff and mods as i can't open the launcher in any way. All I keep getting is:

Hello.

BadImageFormatException means that the file most likely exists, but it's corrupted.

The file name = assembly name + '.dll' (System.ServiceModel.dll in this case)

Re-install .NET Framework 4 with the latest available version (currently 4.7 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55167)
