Cod4 steam pb not updating
just wondering, not that I care, I have the cd, so I can reinstall to 1.0 if I want. or just go on a server without PB there is a fewoh yeah just so everyone knows, i've played other games with punkbuster before and its been fine so i dont know whats wrong with this one I have similar problems. I had PB problems, but then realized there was a patch. I turned off Norton and everything seems to be fixed.
I have only played one round so far though so I need further testing.
If you are running the game from a secondary partition, download and install the latest BIOS updates from your motherboard manufacturer.

Make sure Punk Buster is updated to the latest version. (Currently, the latest available patch is v1.7.) If that doesn’t solve the issue, try the next suggestion. E8 15F90000 CALL iw3mp.004FCCD0 ; \iw3mp.004FCCD0 A1 D4824001 |MOV EAX, DWORD PTR DS:[14082D4] 0057A7F4 |.
Before continuing, please make note of the make and model of your sound card prior to removing it in order to aid in reinstallation at a later date. 68 A0376E00 PUSH iw3mp.006E37A0 ; |Arg2 = 006E37A0 ASCII "Error initializing direct sound instance!
I tried reinstalling and reupdate the game, dissable my firewall and update PB. anyone knows how and why this happens, and how to fix this?
- Open C:/Program Files/Activision on your pc, and copy/paste the Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare folder to C:\ on your hard drive.. - Open the cod4 folder and delete the following folders and files (Highlighted Green) You do not need to upload these files, it will save you 1.25GB: - Open the C:\cod4\pb folder and delete everything.
What perplexes me is that I have Norton on my desktop and I don't have to disable it to play Co D4.
My laptop has a newer version of Norton so perhaps that's the difference.
now if I join a server, I play in the server for like 30 seconds, and then I get dissconnected and get the following message:"(nickname) Punkbuster kicked player '(nickname)' (for 0 minutes)...
RESTRICTION: Server Communication Failure: Pn KBstr A.exe"this happens in ANY server with punkbuster, which never happened before.now I'm used to play in servers without punkbuster, dunno why, just a habbit.
