Run cmd.exe with UAC off u will see in top left hand corner in the box, it is running as administrator. I will try again soon, i am getting another pc during week with clean install of whatever latest windows 7 is after 7200.
u did run the pb service from syswow 64 as admin did u??
and have both pba and pb B on admin??

after installing the latest pb from the site Even Balance Technical Support - Download
u cud test it from there if both a and b are working fine without error or not. try running it in compatibility mode.. win xp ...
after u do the compatibility thing.. log off and re log in.. just better.. as it wl kill pb.. and start afresh new.

after that ima gonna try playing rainbow six online.. cause i know that in vista it used to kick me for pb
i know the set as admin, enable compatibility,update punkbuster, and interact with desktop fixes have been mentioned before, but i don't recall seeing anywhere the mention of making pnkbusterB restart

i think for people with problems still, they should mention everything they have tried

but i mean go look at the very first post in this thread, it doesn't mention anywhere about setting punkbuster B to restart.....and it should. i havn't read all the posts in this thread or the other thread thats also pinned just like this one, but i don't recall seeing that fix anywhere

Thanks for all suggestions and possible fixes, as i said previously i run with UAC off that means it must be running as admin. For those 4 games i had tried everything and 7137 64bit i got kicked, I am no longer looking at versions below 72xx builds or fixes, i am just reporting from now on which build work on its own accord for people who like to go along with latest builds, maybe this should be in a new topic Punkbuster for 64bit working versions -no fixes.

I since tried 7229 64bit works on call of duty 4 and i did not need to do anything for that game so its good news for battlefield 2 and 2142 that i did not test yet.

Yes if u have time try 7229, I did not get kicked and i used to get api as soon as i
connected with cod4 on 7137, i played over 3 rounds with 7229 or more, i did not get to try bf2 and 2142 or call of duty world at war, i might try next week this week too busy.

Sorry i forgot, that part of normal is to update the punkbuster by pbsetup u need to still do the update and include the games u want , i always do it, so its normal for me.
The editing of Services and compatability/admin are things i did not touch which i refer to as fixes. Also note i run with UAC off and i am runnig as admin, if u dont run with uac off maybe u need the admin tick. For me UAC off is normal too.

Your right there epson.. i too wonder why its not being updated.. the first post cud have been updated with the given fixes...

and for roxas
", I am no longer looking at versions below 72xx builds or fixes, i am just reporting from now on which build work on its own accord for people who like to go along with latest builds, maybe this should be in a new topic Punkbuster for 64bit working versions -no fixes."

maybe i downgrade to that version, becouse build 7232 x64 doesn´t work fine pb
"Yes if u have time try 7229..."

Your setting ppl on a wild goose chase by saying that.. u first tell and promote the ide of getting newer win7 .. and thn tell to downgrade cause it worked for u ?!!
man i got the basic official win7 ie build 7100.. and pb works fine in it..
and if it isnt working in urs thn its just that u didnt do right..
and plz dont advice ppl to turn off uac.. its not required. the way u mention it.. makes it feel that turning off uac is a fix.. WHICH IS NOT.
lets try to focus on the problem and illiminate it.. if done rightly.. i know its theoritical.. but wl work for all win7 versions

I clearly say if u dont run with uac off maybe u need the admin tick.
If it makes people think they need to turn off UAC or think it means its fix, then sorry no its not, it does not say that to me, its refering to the fix you posted, that part i can agree with that is running files at this time for this application as admin is important, as I don't know how people run their pc for me i did not need to test that part as MY uac is off.

I am saying that 7229 worked for me and I am reporting for people that are keen to try it on cod 4. If the guy has no luck with 7232 he has no choice but to go back to older version anyway or see if it fix itself, or try fix u posted, I am trying to help find 1 that works for people that have higher than 7200 build for those 4 games only, and yes i know 7100 RC works fine on bf2/2142 ,Cod 4 cod WAW. People need to state games they are testing too.

Sorry people if i wasted your time , i was trying to find a build that works
on 64 bit for the 3 games i mentioned cod 4, cod waw and battlefield 2
since i had some time to play around on another pc. I tried all fixes for the 3 games mentioned. Build 7229 was going well the other day.

Today i got api kick on 7229, then after reinstalling 7229, applying all the known fixes posted, i did get api error on cod 4 again and i am closing my involvment with this problem. Since RC 7100 works i am going back to that build and keep it till Retail version is avaliable.

Good luck to all , sorry if i led astray or wrong direction. In the end it was fun testing. I hope some of the fixes posted by other people work for some.
