Please help me !!
Punkbuster keeps kicking me out after I installed win 8. I already followed all the steps to re-install and update the PB, running PBSETUP and the other one in admin mode.
Thanks a lot.
hey if you have possibility try run it on win7
Hey EA, yes, this worked on Win 7 but I think all of us out here are hoping you can pull some strings to get a fix in real quick otherwise those of us who run EA games with PunkBuster are... well, we're not playing EA games. HELP.
This needs a fix. Fast. Seriously, the only complaint I have with BF2 is the amount of hassle it is trying to play with punkbuster. First it was Steam, now Windows 8. What a hassle.
Ok, so I cant play BF2, BF2142, or bad company because of punkbuster not working with win 8. Tried the reinstall in compatability mode for win7 and for vista, no difference. grabbed the pbsetup files from evenbalance and manually installed and updated....Still no joy, started looking for the PnkBstrA.exe file (I am set to search and view hidden and system files) it does not exist - so I am also stuck with no online access to these games!
Anyone got a solution worked out yet? I have a ticket in at evenbalance, but I believe that it is probably a futile waste of effort!
Download this http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe to a local file and run it as an administrator. Worked for me!
