Windows 7: Punkbuster fix

Um are you guys sure? I've tried Battlefield 2, Battlefield Heroes and America's Army and I'm still getting kicked almost right away. Is it just COD4 that was fixed? Maybe it got an updated PB that the others haven't yet?

I've only tested on COD 4 and 5 ATM so they may not have updates for all the games yet but I'm sure they will be working on it.

Windows 7 build 7229 32 bit & Build 7600 32bit
 
 

Got BF2 to run on RTM 32bit not sure if it was punkbuster or some thing I did. I played all day yesterday

What I did I ran regedit then went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\PnkBstrA. Right click on PnkBstrA and select permissions so Sercurity Tab pops up. Under Users(YourPC'sName\Users) check the box for full control hit apply. Also I went to ControlSet002 and CurrentControlSet did the same thing.

As I said not sure if it was what I did or PB ??

I tried this and everything else in this thread for that matter and I'm still getting kicked. Did I mention how much I hate Evenbalance/Punkbuster?

I noticed about a week ago that my PB client for COD4 updated to version 2.200. That was about the time I was able to play using Win 7 x64. My PB client for AA3 for example still shows 2.184.

I've played 3-4 times since then, multiple hours per session and no kicks. Before the updated I tried most of the advice on various forums for setting the PB exes to Administrator compatibility mode, messing with services "control desktop" settings, etc. Nothing allowed me to play COD4 on PB-enabled services until this new updated to the PB client came in.

So perhaps this was a fix unique to COD4 for now ?

Is there anyone here not running COD4 or COD5 that has been able to play punkbuster games on the RTM 64bit?

I have to concur, I played today and there was no issues with playing what so ever. It looks like even balance has finally fixed their flaw. Now if they can make the whole software stable we'll be ok....They will never gain any more points with me ever...they can only regain what they lost

No they haven't. I'm getting kicked in all PB games I have.
