Windows 7: BF 2142 PunkBuster Issue

BF 2142 PunkBuster Issue

I have the official Windows 7 Beta (Build 7000), and I installed BF 2142 yesterday.

Everything works great, no lag, no freezing.

But when I play online, after about 10 minutes, I get kicked off the server and the Punk Buster popup appears.

Has anyone else experienced this?

It happens to every server I join, different maps, different games.

Thanks in advance.

If you check this thread you'll discover you are far from being alone.

Punkbuster has stated they will not support a Beta OS....so until Windows 7 is officially released you can only hope someone outside of Evenbalance will come up with a solution (and some folks are working on it).

Set the compatibility to XP SP2 on BF2142 and punkbuster will think that you are running XP and you shouldn't get kicked. I did this about a week ago and haven't been kick at all (including BF2)

Windows 7 - Build 7000
 
 
FIX

Hey guys,

Ive recently installed Windows 7 Beta Build 7000. Ive noticed some problems with Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 after installing them onto WINDOWS 7 and did some research on the problems that were coming up here are the 2 problems I had:

Battlefield 2: Punkbuster Kick for Inadequate O/S Privileges (Which means administrative rights are not set, no admin rights?)

and

Battlefield 2142: Punkbuster Kick for Unknown Windows API funtion Error Code: 131131

So after doing a bunch of reading on the net, a lot of people were talking crap to the people with Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 and telling them oh what are you doing playing games on betas and basically complaining and not giving any help so I decided to figure it out and help those people that like WINDOWS 7 and just dont want to go back to crappy VISTA or the outdated XP so here is the fix step-by-step:


INSTRUCTIONS:


1. Right click on the BF2 shortcut on desktop and click properties, (im sure your not a noob since you have windows 7 beta) so set your admin privileges to full control for bf2 and make sure you have "run as administrator" checked.

2. Right click on the shortcut on the desktop and click open file location and then do the same admin privileges on the actual BF2.exe

3. Last most important step, I think Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 somehow dont allow Punkbuster update under Windows 7 so you have to do it manually.

Go to this link and download PBSetup:


PunkBuster Online Countermeasures

Install it and select your game and update Punkbuster through that program.



Thats it!!! It works flawlessly for me! and i hope it works for you!


P.s.
Also I almost forgot make sure your firewall and antivirus software isnt blocking any of the games or programs. I have Kaspersky and i made sure BF2 and BF2142 were under the TRUSTED section....

Kai911 I and a lot of other people have followed this issue for months. We have all tried giving everything admin rights and opening firewalls. Elevating processes blah blah blah.

None of this works. I don't know how/if you have managed to play without getting kicked.

This does work for Me, i did everything He said to a T and I did all this before I even attempted to run the game for the first time(fresh install) PunkBuster never Kicked Me

EDIT: After exiting the game totally then logging back on and joining a different server i got the boot, tried going back into the server that didnt kick me and got the boot again, thats pretty darn weird if you ask me

window7 ultimate 64 bit beta
 
 

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!!!!1

i have been struggling with this for close to two weeks.

pb booting me for api function 131131

resolution:

AMD Fusion beta.. this is a software that disables things running in the background of windows to free up system resources so games can run faster. one of these background items was related the API funciton that triggers the punkbuster boot..

i have just been able to successfully play for over 15 minutes with no boot.

i have not figured out exactly which background program was causing the erro but i did have to manually configure the fusion profile to stop select items to prevent it from stopping my wireless connection.

i will provide additional details when i have more time but this is a mjor break through....
