Sorry if this has been posted before, but I didn't find a similar thread, so here goes.
Evenbalance has released a new PunkBuster update, and on some server it is causing trouble because PB is not automatically updated. You get kicked within seconds of connecting with a warning concerning PunkBuster. You can fix this by running a manual update.
The easiest way to do this is by downloading and running PunkBuster Setup:
You may also need to configure firewall and anti-virus software to allow PunkBuster to communicate.

everyone should get this updater, i have had it for a very long time and regualry use to update Bf42 and Bf2, it also sometimes helps LAG to have the latest version
Agreed, everyone should use the updater; I played my first game of FH last night after about a 3 month absence but I wasn't getting disconnected because I had updated my Punkbuster client before I connected to a server. Many people were getting disconnected on the TDP server last night and were whining about being kicked off until someone told them to go to PunkBuster Online Countermeasures and update their PB client.
I didn't realize this seems to be happening on ALL BF42 servers.
Perhaps this info should be posted on the FH frontpage. I can imagine some players may not figure out what is wrong and stop playing BF:FH for good. This could very well have an adverse effect on the FH community.
This PB update completely, excuse my language, fucks up BF.

Natty may ultimately be right, but PB does seem to go out of its way to screw with your 'puter......
I must be full of fail, i did the "Update PB with PBsetup" and i selected bf42, it said it updated it. I tried to join a server, disconnected.
I just have to run the PBsetup file, right? I don't have to save it anyplace special?
Anyone want to make a "simplified instructions for dummies" list? I can't get it to work.
About every third or fourth update I have problems. In fact I've got a whole folder on my desktop of nothing but forum posts on how to fix the problem. I find that I have to keep going through them over and over until it works.
If EA can insert little pop up windows to buy the latest expansion pack or download the latest map, why can't they do the same with Punkbuster?
I didn't make it!
I tried to install it but it didnt work. I cant add game on that selection.I dont know whats the broblem im been kicked many servers because this i think that my battlefield 1942 wars is over.:( (i use mac osx)PLESE HELP!!!!!!!!!
