I don't know if this will help with your build, but it worked for me on 7100 x64. for bf2.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Currently Punkbuster (the anti-cheat software built into many multiplayer games) has major compatibility issues with Windows 7. Various fixes have been discovered for x32 versions of the Beta OS, but none (until now) for x64. Punkbuster themselves have refused to support Windows 7 until RTM, so forgive the “hackiness” of the fix, but it works.

The Fix

In both C:\Windows\SYSWOW64 and C:\Windows\System32

Open PnkBstrA.exe and PnkBstrB.exe’s properties and enable Vista Compatibility Mode, as well as “Run as administrator”. Save.

Right click on the desktop and create a new text file, then copy paste the following:


sc config PnkBstrA type= own type= interact

sc config PnkBstrB type= own type= interact

timeout 60

goto start

Save the text file as punkbuster.bat and run it (as an administrator) before joining a server.

Problem “resolved”.
Well I just tested this on 7137 and it doesn't work.
If your going to game with pb stay with 7100 or 7127

I was smart this time, I decided to make a backup before I installed 7229 and I was able to restore my old build in about 20 minutes.

Mr.Grim, which have you found to be the faster/better version for gaming in general, 7100, 7127 or 7137? (pb worked for me on all )

What was depressing is that 7201 was fantastic for CoD4 and WaW Multiplayer, game ran smooth and fast until the dreaded pb kick.

Tried all the tweaks, no joy.

Thanks for your input!

Stupid Stupid Laptop Battery

Best build from 7201?
I'm currently running build 7201 x64 and getting bored with it. What's the next best thing? 7232 x64? Or 7260 x86? Is 7260 worth downgrading to x86?
