I was fine yesterday, haven't changed anything on our server, and I am now getting kicked within a minute of most servers because of O/S access? Any way to fix this?
Has anyone figured out an answer to this question? I am having the same problem.
Just reinstalled, had no effect... need a solution!
hello guys, Here is a solution but it only works for win 2000 or win xp pro not home edition
Is there some way to modify my system configuration to be an administrator equivalent from PunkBuster's perspective?
Yes (under Win XP Pro or Win 2K). This can be accomplished by setting certain privileges for the user that will run the game. To do this, first temporarily log in as an Administrator. Then go to Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy. This will open up the Local Security setting window. Expand the Local Policies folder and select User Rights Assignment. This will bring up a list of security settings for the computer. You will need to add the user that will be launching the game to have the following privileges. If the user is logged in while making changes, the user must be logged out and back in for the changes to take effect.
Load and unload device drivers
Manage auditing and security log
Modify Firmware environment values
Profile Single Process
This is done by double clicking on the setting and then the "Add User or Group" button. You can either type the user or group name into the field or click on advanced to select from a list. If you select advanced, you may need to click on the "Object Types" button and make sure all 3 boxes are checked. Then click "OK". Click on the "Find Now" button to generate a full list of all users and groups on the system. Highlight the user you want to add the rights to and click "OK". Keep clicking "OK" untill you are back at the Local Security Settings window. Repeat this process for the rest of the list. That user will now be able to play on PB servers without getting kicked for "Inadequate O/S Privileges".
Well, I've got home, so that doesn't help much.... Even balance needs to fix this, right away, considering most players have XP Home.
yeah i agree its fukin annoying every update that comes to this game angers me i wish we could just go back to 1.1 with pb
im having the same problem... about a minute or so into the game i get booted by punk buster with the message Restriction: inadequate o/s privileges. But i already have full administrative rights.
I figured out the problem with the inadequate o/s privileges. For me it was because of the fact that i had not downloaded the latest punkbuster. In CoD i set the allow download option to no and when the newest version came out it did not automatically download onto my computer so i had to do it manually. Here is the link: http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-cod.php . Download the two security files for CoD, the two player client files (both PB Client v1.085 & Pb ClientA v1336 depending on what operating system your using), and if ur a server download the newest server version of PB. Just follow the instructions that are given on the page and you should be fine. Make sure to put these files in the pb folder which is in your Call of Duty folder. Also make sure ur logged in as administrator or have administrative rights when you try to play CoD online. That should fix everything. Good luck. I hate PB!!!
Still does it... damn PB.
Yeah iv been having the same problems, i need to get it fixed, i have a drill tomarrow. i hate it when u email them and yet they still havent emailed me back after two days.
