As the title says, I'm trying to play COD2 on WinVista.

I have a dual boot system(WinXP and WinVista)... WinXP can play COD2 with no problems, but whenever I boot into WinVista I get:
"I've_been kicked via punkbuster for (0 minutes), Reason: Inadequate O/S Privileges.


Just wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem... :whistling:
PS: Just got done updating punkbuster in pb folder using pbweb.exe still doesn't work tho.

Punkbuster may not have enabled support with Windows Vista yet, I would recommend playing on Windows XP untill further notice. Not many programs support Windows Vista yet.

Hope that helps :whistling:

Ok I got it figured out. Found a wiki on the net that knew what to do.

Punkbuster is not compatible with Vista. You can play on non-Punkbuster servers]*
(Punkbuster servers will work if you right click the icon and go to compatability mode and set to run program as administrator)

I tried it for about 20min and Punkbuster didn't kick me.
