If you're running Windows Vista, then try this. or If you're using XP, make sure you have Admin Right.

Battlefield 2 and 2142 are not supported, but are compatible with Windows Vista.

If you are running Vista, here are the steps to ensure your game will run properly:

1. Install the game as normally, ignore the "Only compatible with Xp" warning.
2. Once installed, run all the proper updates/patches.
3. Find the BF2/Special Forces/BF2142 Icon on your desktop.
4. Right-click on the Icon and select Properties.
5. Click on the tab titled Compatibility.
6. Check the option to "Run this program as Administrator."
7. Click OK.

You are good to go! If you fail to check the compatibility, the game will run and let you join a server, but you will be immediately booted out because PunkBuster will have insufficient access to your system files.

Hope this helps!

launch server, then from console enter the following command

/rcon pb_sv_restart

also you can enter this to force pb to update manually;
/rcon pb_sv_update

I am having the same problem. I have done everything EA states except deleting registries etc. What the heck do we do, this doesn't make any since, I think this has happened to many players on EA games and they refuse to address it. I just bought the game, updated it and updated PB and nothing changed. I am running a brand new computer with Vista and i do think that has something to do with the compatibility. They haven't and probably won't answer my issue on EA. Why do they even use that stupid software.
