It could be a number of things. Did it work fine before the patch? If so, it probably corrupted or didn't fully intall while you were patching it to 1.01.

Well this procedure worked great for me and I have been online playing for 3 hours with no problems on different servers now.
- As we know the Punkbuster folder is located "\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\pb" - I installed the 1.01 server patch as well as the windows 1.01 patch. - Make a backup copy of your battlefield vietnam "pb" folder elsewhere keeping the files & folders the way they are. - Copy the "\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam Server\pb" files into this "\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\pb" overwriting the files & folders there. - Now we got the windows & server punkbuster files together. - It should work just fine for you now.
FYI: I did try pbweb.exe and it made my BF:V worse, I could not even see the map loading screen and send me back to the bF: menu.
IF it does not work for you, just erase the files in "\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\pb" and copy the files and folders you have backup back into "\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\pb"
- It does not make sense to me why it would work but it does.
Good luck and let me know if it worked for you. thanks for the help
