Hi guys.

I've been working on this problem for a few weeks or so. The problem came out of no where. Worked perfectly for (reinstalled game) months and all of a sudden, I get that error.

PB is up to date.
Checked under "services.msc" and both of the PnkBstr exe's are running, both on automatic, and on start up.
A few minutes in to a game, I get kicked for the above mentioned PB error.
I contacted PB support and I'm getting no where!!

Help!!!

Hey Tango,

Try manually updating punkbuster using pbsetup from the link below:

and see if it helps. Usually updating PB helps with its issues.

That's what I've been told to do and it still doesn't work.

I also have the pbsvc which can uninstall and test the services. Everything tests ok but, the PnkBstrB.exe quits some time during game play.
Before entering a game, I check the services.msc tab to make sure everything is running as it should be. Everything checks out ok! All systems go!!

If you are using antivirus, did you exclude the BF2 directory and PnkBstrA.exe and PnkBstrB.exe in \windows\system32 ?
What windows version are you using ?
Did you delete the PB folder inside \Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\ before manually updating the punkbuster ?

No AV installed but, both exe's are on the firewall exception list.
Windows XP 32-bit
Yes.

I would delete the PB folder, uninstall PB, reinstall, test services, make sure within the windows services.msc that both PnkBstr A & B exe's are running on startup and auto. Check for PnkBstr exe's running under the task manager services tab.
Perform manual PB update.
Fire up BF2 and get kicked within 2 minutes!

This has been going on for a month or so out of the blue!

I just re-installed when this happened the first week of playing. I haven't had any more trouble. The only issue I have is "kicking for lost key packets" ... Rolling Eyes
