COD4 MP Issue

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
When I try to play COD4 MP, I get kicked from servers between 5-15 seconds with this: "...Restriction Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe".

First advice I was given was kill the PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB in task manager processes, unfortunately they do not show there and can not be done. Secondly I have tried to start the PnkBstrA service since it was disabled and thought it might be an issue there.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you.

you need to update punkbusters libaries, i don't know were it is on the retail install, but on steam go to the installation directory and run the punkbuster installer, once it is done just click on the check for updates button and update, then try again.

it might be the same on the retail DVD version as well, i dont know

You need to update PB through PBsetup and restart your computer.

The second part isn't for fun. You have to do it.

I have updated PBSetup using the program from EvenBalance. I have also tried their uninstaller which removes all PB info so I can do a clean install. Still the same problem. I am going to uninstall COD4 and try again this all started when I updated to 1.7 from 1.6.

Delete the PB folder from your game directory and run PBSetup again. This only happens on Vista BTW, on XP it will automatically update.

I updated to 1.7 I got the same thing. Ran PBsetup.exe and still the same thing. So I redownloaded PBsetup, and reran it. It worked then, and worked for hours lastnight afterwords.
I'm on Vista 32bit.
I also updated on my girlfriends PC,(XP 32bit) did the exact same thing. I redownloaded and reran PBsetup again, and it worked for that also.
(I didn't even restart)

Restarted the game and they appeared. So I changed my last post via editing because I also attempted 003's method. Did that work for you if you tried it at all?

*We're both rocking the CM690 Chassis BTW =P*

I posted above what I did. I haven't had problems since. I know it's PB needing to update though.
Try downloading and re-running PB update. See if that works.

And if your rocking the CM690, join the club!
