After a while of Loading, the screen goes black and the Loading is still there in the top right corner. Then after a few secs it shuts down and i get the error.

 

Tried to join different kinds of servers with different numbers of players on, actually 10 times now.

I'm having the exact same problem

 

//EDIT: Adding those htm files and installing pb and adding bf4 and update after that solved the problem for me.

Re: PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed

Hello,

 

Make sure your anti-virus is not blocking punkbuster, also check windows firewall. 

Punkbuster has 2 services running in the background in order to check your PC for hacks or 3rd party programs influencing the game.

 

They are called:

PnkbstraA

 

In order to enable both do:

 

1. Press Windows button and R at the same time

2. enter "Services.msc"

3. Locate PnkBstraA on the list

4. Mark both and select "Start the service" on the left side.

4B. If already running restart it.

 

This should resolve your issue.
