Punkbuster Problem
Hi, i cannot connect to any public server. When i want to enter, Punkbuster failed to start and says that I have to update Punkbuster with pbsezup.exe. I did this but it's still the same. Then I re-installed Punkbuster with pbsvc.exe but the problem is still there... What can I do, I hope someone can help me. Ah, I've a NEW Soldier and only played the Training.

Thanks, Gruselinde

I had the same problem. I went to Punkbuster's homepage website thingy installed it there.
If that doesn't work, make a veteran soldier, that's what I made. And I can play multiplayer. If that doesn't work, then I am sorry. I can't help you then.

i had a similar problem. Try to check for windows updates, if you have updates pending just install them, then run pbsvc.exe and reinstall pb. check for updates etc and then try to join a public server.. this worked for me.. i read somewhere that can be something to do with windows certificates that PB needs to communicate etc.

I've had the same problem. I resolved it by uninstalling/reinstalling AA3, and I haven't faced the problem since.

Make sure, that in a game you got the PB enabled. You need to log-off from a serwer, but have still the game running. Then you need to open the old server browser that is still a part of the game and there klick the PB check box.
Without this check box enabled you can reinstal PB 100 times and it will not work.

Sorry for my english - long time no use.

Some times you have to go to the multiplayer secton and on the top it will say [enable PunkBuster] and if the square next to it is not filled in it is not enabled. Or you still have to install PunkBuster.

Sometimes when PB updates its Client and Server files they get out of sync, ie server has a version that the client doesnt understand and the other way round. If your firewall for some reason stops PB from automatically updating itself or if the update fails you can get this issue. I have the PB DL site on my short cut as it has happened more than once to me over the years :)
