PB Restrictions error
« on: Tuesday, November 24, 2020, 13:28:43 PM »
                                               =ISSUE HAS BEEN RESOLVED==

Hello
I'm having problems staying connected to any server, when i connect i can chose teams no problem and after a few minutes i get kicked by pnkbstr with a "PB Restriction".
Than my game closes automatically and i get this message: https://i.imgur.com/IK6JAfu.png
I do the stuff the prompt says run everything in admin etc and when the pnkbstr install does its test i get no errors in the test but this part of it still comes up as a no: https://i.imgur.com/nBLPutF.png
The exe files got installed into SysWOW64 not system32, so i thougt that was the problem so i copied the files into system32 and added a firewall rule to them and a run as admin aswell.
But I am still getting kicked with the same message after a few minutes.
If someone could help me that would be great.

You could try and see if anything in this recent thread will be of help.

After swapping out my HDDs for SSDs and re-installing the game I cannot play this game anymore. I constantly get kicked for PB Restriction. I've tried every single solution in this thread and nothing works. "fix PB" ,the file possessed posted, restarted my PC, and even reinstalled the game twice. It's still broken. I simply cannot play this game at all.

That's actually a good one Killa, does everybody with this problem have the game installed on SSD?

Danke für die Hilfe, doch leider habe ich auch dies ausprobiert und - es funktioniert nicht. Vielleicht hast Du noch andere Ideen?

another try to solve it:

ok, let's try to get some sence about that issue.
would be great to have some answers about the questions below from 10-20 players with and without this punkbuster kick problem.

Section A with NO problems at all - no punkbuster kicks:
A1. what version of windows and/or mac operating system do you use?
A2. when did you install 25assist (date)?
A3. what kind of firewall do you use?
A4. at which provider are you connected to?
A5. do you automaticaly or manualy start other programs before you start 25assist?
A6. since when do you play 25assist?
A7. which antivirus program do you use?

Section B with PROBLEMS and punkbuster kicks:
B1. what version of windows and/or mac operating system do you use?
B2. when did you install 25assist (date)?
B3. what kind of firewall do you use?
B4. at which provider are you connected to?
B5. do you automaticaly or manualy start other programs before you start 25assist?
B6. since when do you play 25assist?
B7. which antivirus program do you use?

I did install 25assist about 5 years on a SSD and it worked. For some reason i did made a new installation of my windows10 from scratch and - after this i had the problems with pb kicks. there could be many reasons for this and i did try a lot to fix it, but nothing works really. for sure it could also be the 25assist installation with something missing or outdated.

[F.U.N]Cpt, could you please delete 25assist and reinstall it again? would be great to hear if that still will work on your side. thanks!

Im guessing you had to reinstall Windows and then were faced with the latest updates maybe or you possibly upgraded to Win10 from another version ?

Vielen Dank für die Rückmeldung!

So this sounds like the solution what [F.U.N]Cpt is telling us. Let's try to make the confirmation about it.
Can someone install Windows 10 with all patches on a new disk (or on a deleted old one), download and install 25assist - without any manual updates of Punkbuster?

Would be great to hear if that works for all.
Many thanks to [F.U.N]Cpt for sharing this with us.

No. My Windows install location was moved from and older SATA SSD to a newer M.2 SSD. Not a new install. The game worked on my old SATA SSD, it is no longer is playable on the M.2 SSD. I would like to point out that Windows does not care about what medium it's reading data off of. There's no logical reason for PB to be acting differently on an SSD vs a HDD. I don't think the storage medium is the issue.
