Windows 7: Punkbuster fix

Windows 7 RC build 7100 x86
 
 

Unfortunatelly, it still doesn't work for me.
I followed Mdttb's steps, but when I launch the game, it kicks me after a few seconds/minutes.
Maybe, it's because I use an external client for CoD4...
(I use Windows 7 RC1 64bit + Call of Duty 4 with the newest PB)

This one:
in: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\PnkBstrB]
the value: ErrorControl

thats what I'm saying.... i know i'm on x86 and things could be different possibly for x64, but as far as i am concerned i did nothing "special" to "trick" PB into working. I even turned off interactive desktop for PnkbstrA, which i had turned on previously before the newest update. thats it, no run as admin, not messing about with anything PB other than updating. Still havent been kicked, played once over the weekend for over 2.5 hours (was suprised i stayed connected to internet that long, let alone getting kicked by PB)

OK, it's true. Without any fixes, and update the punk buster with pbsetup, it's works at least in CoD4. The value in the registry returned back to original value and the game works
Punkbuster has update its sw, although they say that don't give support to win7

Sorry for my english

In COD 2 it depends on the server's configuration, if the server PB up to date then you will able to play without any API error message. Perhaps better if you update your client PB too.
Because PB updated the Master server configs not the client one.
So try other servers or write me and i give 4 you a IP.
If it not help maybe I h got another tip.

Sorry my bad english but i want to help

Just installed Win 7 x64 two days ago and got around to testing BF2 yesterday (around an hour and a half), which worked with no problems. All I did was go here,

PunkBuster Online Countermeasures

downloaded PBSVC, set it to XP compatibility mode, then let it install the PB services.
