Punkbuster help

A Forum Thread for Battlefield 2142

I can't stay in a server longer than a minute before getting kicked because of punkbuster..

Alright i just got Battlefield 2142 today and when i installed it and tried to play online i get a Punkbuster error. I've looked up tutorials on youtube ect... Even gone to punkbusters site and downloaded it again. But it wont let me stay in a server longer than a couple of seconds. Does anyone know what i can do to fix this so i can finally play?

    Could it be that your firewall is blocking it? Do you use Vista or xp?

    Then you should go to pbsetup.exe, open its propeties and check the run as administration and try again.

    Mm.. That is weird. I have ever liked punkbuster because it is not working well. Could it be your internet connection? Something wrong with that? When did this start happening? Or did it ever work? You could also try re-installing the game/ patch

    There should be no proplem. Have you tried play while pbsetup.exe is on? And have you checked updates? :P

    Yea it's update. I saw a tutorial somewhere saying to delete my pb folder then install punkbuster again. Do you think that will work?

    It's not 2142 that does it, it's PunkBuster. You need to MANUALLY update PB. I'd give you a link but I can't recall it.

    Try downloading a file called pbsvc, just google and you will probably find it. it lets you reinstall pb but I had to install it every time I had to play a pb game...

    Use this: http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-pr-help-hardware-support/42895-problems-punkbuster-solutions-here.html It's a lot of reading. I found that the best solution is to create .bat file like this
    @echo off rmdir /S /Q "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\pb" cd C:\path\to\pbsetup\folder\ start pbsetup --i-accept-the-pb-eula /u /q
    Go figure it out. this is like 1 of 2 working solutions for this because PB is simply fucking broken. If you have any other questions comment back in my profile.
