Windows 7: Punkbuster fix

windows 7
 
 

2 computers with rc 7100 64 bit, call of duty 4, Cod World at War, BF2, 2142 all working no kicks. Did not need to do anything special either just update pbsetup. I got kicked out of bf2 once but it was not api function.

I was told 7127 works as well, 7137 did not work.

I am interested if 7201 64x or higher (when avaliable) only works, I'm interested in if it works right off and not fixes as fixes people are posting do not work on 64bit, you think it works but soon u will get kicked..
Thanks

its official.. bf heroes and its punkbuster is compatible with win7
i just had to run the internet explorer as admin.. thats all
basically that means install pb as admin..
like i said before.. pb problem has been solved...
just get the latest pb from net.. install it as admin...
go to ur sys32 or wowsys64 directory (whichever bit ur using)
and right click and make run the 3 pb files as admin
pbserv , pnkbsterA and pnkbstrB .. thats alll

works in all 32 bit and 64 bit.. AND FOR ALL WIN7 VERSIONS...
if u cant make this simple thing work.. shame on u

That may be a fix for some games but not all, so can people put a list of games they have confirmed working and what build they are using.

I agree with Grim, i am sure i tried this simple thing on battlefield 2, 2142 and 2 latest call of duties and it did not work, on 64 bit 7137 onward u get kicked, besides i have UAC off and that means everything i run is in admin mode. 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.

the fix suggested in this thread didn't work for me either (build 7077), however i did manage to fix it myself.

the problem is the punkbuster B program randomly closes on its own, i had to open up processes, then go to services, however the B program won't be in there unless BF2 is running....so you gotta start it up and then tab out

then you find that punkbuster program and you make sure its started, then you make sure it is is allowed to interact with the desktop, THEN you have to set the recovery failures to restart the program...that way when it closes windows will automaticlly restart it for you

ding ding problem solved but people failed to mention that little problem with punkbuster closing on its own and thats why that fix doesn't work for everyone

oh and you might have to set it to manuel under the general tab and possible click the start button below that

what u mentioned.. is already given in this thread.. and many other places... currently these two fixes are available.. and whn u do thm.. it works.. i am gonna take this issue more seriously, i have tested only one game so far.. bf heroes.. i have downloaded and installed aa3.. that was giving some load error.. game froze whn u clik play.. but after attempting alot of stuufs.. i just let it load the map for like the whole night( went to sleep) after 8 hpours it was still frozen a loading the training map.. but after i killed the game..logged off and logged in..now it works fine.. only thing is the authorization for aa3.. is not working.. the servers arent able to support all the players..so cudnt check if online works or not..
after that ima gonna try playing rainbow six online.. cause i know that in vista it used to kick me for pb
