  • Solution for PB problems on Vista/Windows 7

    After trying everything this is what I finally figured out. So simple, so elegant, so obvious. (So obvious that it took me almost three hours to even think of it.)

    This is a fix that worked for me. I run Windows 7 32x. I believe this simple fix will solve the problem for most people with seemingly unreconcilable PB issues that run Windows Vista or newer and BF2 1.5.

    -Uninstall PB. You can do this either with pbsvc or manually.
    -Right click on pbsvc.exe
    -Select "Properties"
    -Hit the "Compatibility" tab.
    -Under Privilege Level, select "Run this program as an administrator."
    -Hit Apply, and close the Properties window.
    -Run pbsvc.exe.
    -Start fraggin'


    After trying literally EVERYTHING I could think of, reading countless posts and trying EVERYTHING I read but hadn't already thought of, this is what finally fixed the issue for me.

    I am also running pnkbstra.exe, pnkbstrb.exe and pbsetup.exe with administrator privilege.

    I hope this helps.
