im looking into it. Im more up on COD than battlefield. I'm just checking on the actuall error number to verify (507). lets start by manually updating punkbuster. download pbweb.exe from evenbalance and place it into you bf2\pb folder. application must be run from withing that folder.

I have used "call of duty" as an example. just replace the program path with battlefield

This is the executable for Punkbusters Client side AUTO UPDATING using WINDOWS Operating Systems:
http://www.evenbalan...loads/pbweb.exe

Be sure to save the pbweb.exe into the home "pb" folder (C:\Program Files\Call of Duty\pb) on your hard drive and then launch PBWEB.exe. If PBWEB is not launched from inside the home "pb" directory/folder, then it will not work.

This is the easiest way to AUTO update Punkbusters from the player/client side. The game server does NOT update ALL of your game files. This way will do that for you!

I would recommend doing this even if your not having problems or if your having 999 problems along with No Packet Flow errors & PB Initialization Failures.

This can take a little while to run........this is typical!

You can save pbweb.exe into the pb folder for any punkbuster supported game per the example above.

when you download it, just save it to the battlefield2\pb folder. then go to that location and doubleclick on the pbweb.exe and it will run for you. No install needed.
