    I encounter some troubles trying to play with america's army.
    Game installation is fine, Punkbuster update run well, but when I try to
    connect to a game server I was kick for "Game Hook" ?
    Sometime I've got a failed to connect to MSB server just before this
    infamous kick ;-)

    So I suppose the raison is coming from :
    - Security model of Vista
    - or Punkbuster compatibility (I've already post a support request to
    evenbalance. thx).

    Software configuration :

    Windows Vista Home Premium Beta 2 Buid 5384
    America's Army 2.6
    Punkbuster Client version v1.240 A1366

    Internet Connection
    DSL > 784Kbits

    Hardware configuration
    Dell Dimension 8300
    P IV 3 GHz
    1.5 Gbits RAM
    120 Gbits HD
    FX 5200 128 Mo RAM NVidia Video card

    I appreciate any suggestion.
    Thx and best regards.

  2. Yes, it's a known problem. It's something that Punkbuster is going to have
    to fix. It's because the application isn't running with full admin rights,
    with the security model.

    Of course, there was one game that worked with Punkbuster... I think it was
