    PB INIT failure fix UPDATED

    After this post...
    No replies to my Call of Duty 4 problem thread question...
    ...I was still being kicked by Punkbuster. I reinstalled twice, updated Punkbuster and ran pbsvc.exe without success. This is the one change I made that has allowed me to play COD 4 without getting kicked by PB. I right-clicked the multiplayer icon and checked the run as XP service pack 2 compatible under the compatibility tab. I even disconnected my router and "gasp" turned of the Vista firewall to eliminate anything that might have blocked my connecting. *I have since enabled both firewalls*. I have been running it on and off for 2 days now, no errors. Try this and please let me know if it works for you. Then other people will hopefully find this thread.

    I had this same problem (getting kicked midway through a match) until i updated punkbuster manually. I google'd "punkbuster update" and downloaded an update exe from some site, and then it stopped kicking me. Hope this helps anyone that still has this problem, I don't know if a game update ever addressed it...

    VelociT - You are my hero! Solution worked great! Had done everything else but a reinstall to fix the problem. Setting compatibility mode worked like a charm!
