webpage tells where etkey file should be placed for different operating systems.
For WinXP: C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain(folder).
For WinVista and Win7: C:\Documents and settings\User(You)\AppData->Local->Punkbuster->ET->etmain (create the folder if it not exists).
But those are hidden folders In Vista and 7 by default.
You need to have Windows show hidden files and folders:
Start\ Control Panel\ Folder Options\ View(TAB): Show hidden> OK
Turn off User account Control because ET Is usually a full-screen game and You won't see the program's dialog.
Start> control panel> user accounts and family safety> user account(You)> turn user account control on or off>
UNCHECK the box that says: Use User account Control (UCA) to help protect your computer.
You’ll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect.
It'a a good idea to run ET as Admin:
Right-Click on ET start Icon and Left-click on: Run As Administrator(Only once needed).
Right-click ET.exe --> Properties --> Compatibility, select Compat. Mode with XP SP2, Disable Desktop Composition, and tick Run As Administrator.
Never run pbsetup, It destroys etkey function In ET.
Download and run pbsvc.exe to update PB: http://www.evenbalan...pbsvc/pbsvc.exe
Enable PB function If XP Isn't saved after map ends.
Run ET, Open console(Press ~ key),
Type: /pb_cl_enable [Press Enter] and...
/pb_system 1 [Press Enter]
/pb_writecfg [Press Enter]
