As others said, download PBsetup for the game from evenbalance, and run the file AS ADMINISTRATOR. It is very important you run it as administrator. If you do not, it will not install (it is probably the reason it did not install when you installed the game)
Once you have it installed, locate your punkbuster A and B executables and give them admin rights.
Start the game, and all should be well. Good luck.
One suggestion i READ BUT IT WAS TOO LATE TO ENFORCE WAS TO RUN pb AFTER THE 1.41 UPDATE. I DID THE BF2,,,, 3 DISK INSTALL, INSTALLED 1.41, THEN DID 1.50, THEN DID THE pb install/update. maybe I went out of order, and the only fix is to completely reformat and start over, and install in a different order?Edited by Digitronical - 10/18/11 at 4:54pm
