They are working on it PB has taken a stance not to support Win7 until its RTM. Which means that you might get it to work here and there. They have information posted on their page about it they wont take any emails about 7 or issues with it. So its a wait and see factor.
I myself have gotten bf2/2142 to work on 7127 with out any hacks but the servers PB needs to be updated too just like your copy of PB its a try, try, try until you find a server that works.

Solution.
-Open RUN
-Type in Services.msc
-Find PnkbstrA & PnkBstrB
in the second tab over on the top tick "Allow service to interact with desktop"
-close Services
-Go to game shortcut
-Properties
-Compatibility tab
-Tick the box "Run as Administrator"
-Download the attached file
-Right click -> Properties
-Compatibility ->"Run As Admin"
-Run the .exe
-Run Game

PNKBSTR BUSTED


and thank Howard Douglas for his excelent fix

EDIT: Works on 32 bit, not 64x. I'll update once I can find a solution to 64x

Yeah In gameplay it just sends me off with a window displaying "PunkBuster" and an OK button. Had the same problem in Vista 32 in the first few months, but punkbuster usually fixes itself eventually with the auto-update

Since windows seven changes for no reason and games stop working ie pnkbuster kicks etc
U can do this
Once you get it working properly
Use rdrive image and make an image of your partishon
Then if it starts screwing up like it frequently does
Then you can just restore it
This works better then system restore becase it totally re writes everything down tithe last bit on that partishon services files everything will befixed
It takes my
Machine 8 minutes to restore am image and be back on destop
It's small price to pay for a guranteed fix
Thanks for reading

I thought PunkBuster works with Windows 7 build 7100 RC?
I've been playing CoD4 and BF since I got the RC and no kicks. I never even tweak anything.
I'm using the 64-bit version of Windows 7...

I'm also using 64 bit
I did not have to adjust anything
With rc using 32 bit it did not work at all
I have intel core 2 quad q6600 samsung 37in lcd hdtv rampage formula 4 gigs kenisgton hyperx spinpoi t f1 1t
Hd4870dk 1 gig Asus sonar d1
Maybe it's my hardware that makes the issue dunno
But 64 bit works I'm going to buy this os asap LOL
