1. Install CoD4 with PB that comes with it.

2. Install all the patches to bring it up to the current version (1.7)

3. Do a PB manual update.

4. Run Cod4 to make sure all services start.

5. Set the following files to Vista compatibility mode:

  • C:\Windows\SysWOW64\PnkBstrA.exe
  • C:\Windows\SysWOW64\PnkBstrB.exe

6. Play the game.

This has been verified on 64b only, builds: 7100 & 7600 (3 Machines, 2x 7100 and 1 7600) I have been able to play it on build 7100 32b but the executable's are in a different location and I haven't documented them.

I have logged about 3.5 days of constant play with this working, and I've been playing on PB enabled servers.

Please let me know if this works for you
That's exactly the way I have mine working on build 7600 x64 but I also changed the game exe to Vista Compatibility as well but probably wasn't needed.

I think this is the best way to get it going under Windows 7, I helped to get to this through another forum when this worked we posted it and more and more people started reporting that it started to work.

Although I only included my personal successes.

No, that wasn't necessary, because the problem lies with Punkbuster. Not Call of Duty.

I didn't think it was but as it was working I didn't want to change anything as you could understand.

I had actually applied this fix a while ago after someone suggested it but at the time it didn't work and it was just recently that I tried again and found I wasn't getting kicked.

The executable name doesn't match the executable name I use for CoD.
I suggest you uninstall Cod, delete the entire directory from your program files and then do a complete reinstall. (Don't forget to back up your multilayer profile)

Also you should check if all drivers are installed, and install the manufacturers drivers instead of the windows default drivers, I've come across a similar error with someone who didn't have his sound card installed.

Also if you want to play online then you will need build 7100 or 7127
Okay i am using Windows 7 Pro from volume license site, is cod 4 working with punkbuster now no problems or is it a work around?
