You need to update via punkbusters pbsetup :
or use the pbsec off the same page .
pbsetup is the easiest way i have found client side for any pb game updates .

Are the new components optional?
Starting with PB Client version 1.700, the new components are required. Uninstalling and/or disabling the new components will cause PunkBuster to stop working correctly and will cause frequent kicking from PunkBuster enabled servers.

It should work for windows xp and above and should be adaptable to any game.
rem set punkbuster services to auto sc config PnkBstrA binpath= "c:\windows\system32\PnkBstrA.exe" start= "auto" sc config PnkBstrB binpath= "c:\windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe" start= "auto" rem start the punkbuster services sc start PnkBstrA sc start PnkBstrB rem start America's Army start /wait "" "C:\Program Files\America's Army\System\ArmyOps.exe" rem after AA closes stop punkbuster services sc stop PnkBstrA sc stop PnkBstrB rem reset status of punkbuster services to disabled sc config PnkBstrA binpath= "c:\windows\system32\PnkBstrA.exe" start= "disabled" sc config PnkBstrB binpath= "c:\windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe" start= "disabled"
I put the batch file ( mine is named aao.cmd ) in my root folder and have a shortcut on my desktop.. I changed the icon of the desktop shortcut to suit my game icon and have never had any issues and the services only run when my game runs

After posting this though I did go back to where I found it the batch file originally and they have updated .. so maybe this version will be better for BF2.
First off set the services to manual,
then open notepad and create a file called pbconfig.bat
The contents of the file should be :-
sc config PnkBstrA binpath= "c:\windows\system32\PnkBstrA.exe" start= "demand" sc config PnkBstrB binpath= "c:\windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe" start= "demand"
Run this once.
Then replace ALL of the original text in the aforementioned aao.cmd file with the following :-
start /wait "" "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" taskkill /im PnkBstrA.exe /f taskkill /im PnkBstrB.exe /f
Save this to your root directory and follow the instructions from above about putting a shortcut to your desktop.
Hopefully that should work for you
This takes you to that very long intro that BF2 has.. I am aware that some people have created shortcuts to circumvent the long intro , so maybe the path needs to be adjusted to accommodate that but I am not sure.
kudos to Yapple2 and [OF]Grumpy for the creating the batch files originally btw

I'd update my client side PB to the latest version and the server to the latest. You could also try removing mods and custom maps to see if maybe one of them is the cause. Does this happen on all servers or only certain ones?
I recently purchased BF2. I installed it it worked fine. i then installed all updates and booster packs and started getting this error. i ran you pbsetup to update my pb files. the app says all files are up to date. i get the same error on every server i try to connect to. please help correct this error as i have now wasted money on a game i cant even play due to you trying to stop cheaters which would be easier by having a reporting system and banning clients from there.
