hello! ETholics!

i ve got a connection problem and i searched for this one but couldn't find solution.

i installed newly ET on my Window 7 OS system to update my PB GUID number. but as soon as i connect to F|A jaymod server #1, PB kicked me with message of "Communication Failure : PnkBstrA.exe".

i updated punkbuster 3.4 without any script (i don't use or set script at all but basic preference in ET option)

what should i do?

ps) omg! i chose the wrong board to ask a question. if admin see my topic, plz move this one to ET support board. i thought i can delete my topic. :-(
Thank u in advance.

Problem Solved)

I followed the instruction of -=Medic=- but I got another problem. there was no PnkbrstrA or PnkburstB in the System Service list.

I thought things may be different in ET with in COD4.

So I copied and pasted PnkbrstrA.exe and PnkbrstrB.exe from my another computer in which window XP and ET are installed

to System32 in Window 7 and then did the same job as one in the instruction.

But it didn't work. :-( There was still "Communication failure : PnkbrsterA" Error.

I thought again and again. AT Last I found my mistake. :-)

I had to check both ET.exe and ETDED.exe "Run this program as Administrator" option ON

in their properties as well as ET.lnk in my desktop screen.

I was really in the stew whenever I connected to the server. :-) but now I am happy to be able to play ET without any error or being kicked by PB.

Thank u for yer info, Medic!
