Hello, i recenlty got a new pc with windows vista on it and all works fine until today when i tryed to enable my pb, it disconect to me with the next error:
service comunication failure : pkbstrb.exe

i have read some topics on another forums and found many ppl with vista having the same error, dont know if someone here had the same error and maybe found the fix for it.

well Ok i finally found a solution:

What is all this about new PunkBuster services?

Beginning with PunkBuster client version 1.500, we have extended the PunkBuster Anti-Cheat system to operate without the requirement to run PunkBuster supported games with Administrator privileges when running under Windows 2000, XP, or Vista. In order to do this, we have developed new Windows service components to work with the PunkBuster system. PunkBuster will automatically begin using the new service components on supported systems. To manually install/uninstall the components, users may use our PBSVC Setup Program. However, uninstalling the new service components will disable PunkBuster and may prevent playing on PunkBuster servers. PBSVC can be downloaded from here : http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe.

Once the PnkBstrA service is running along with a new PB client version 1.500 and higher, running PB enabled games under Windows 2000, XP or Vista no longer requires Administrator privileges.

Well damn Sad i was more time now conected but after some min i got now another error: windows corrupted/missing api function

Sad so well i will post later if i can found the solution.


We has been felling ourself like a drop of water out of the ocean, smalls, weak, etc.
What if we introduce the drop into the ocean?
From that perspective the drop do not feel itself anymore small or weak ... Can u feel what it means?
