Hey guys had this peroblem

''Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player JakePresland' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe ''

And i fixed it, dont know if it wil work for you but i went into the bf3 folder. 'D:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield3\'
And i clicked on 'pbsv.exe ' ticked 'Install/Re-Install PunkBustwe Service' then went though the process cam out succsessful and it now works fine.

Dont know if it wil work for anyone els, but it worked for me....
Hey guys, tried everything then found this, worked for me too. Well done Jake, you're a champ!



I found another problem that solved it for me. I recently did a fresh re-install, and I notice that the pbsv.exe file was missing from
C:\Program files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield3

I had to go to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\__Installer\punkbuster\redist
and manually copy pbsvc.exe to the root directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\

So,
copy C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\__Installer\punkbuster\redist\pbsvc.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3

And then everything worked!

goto punkbusters website download PBsetup.exe select Battlefield 3 once you have downloaded it then hit check for updates and let it update that should fix your problem as it will update the a & b svc services


I'm having the same problem. Tried this and it did not work. Game was running fine a couple days ago for me.

Punkbusters probably the worst program ever to exist -.- I was gonna play BF3 or BC2 today and both kick me cause of PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed...

it s 1 of the best but lots of people dont know how to use it, initialization failed is normally fixed by reinstalling pb with PBSVC.exe tool in your BF3 folder,then restarting your pc
Google is your friend

This worked.

I moved the file then ran it.

Thank you. Built a brand new computer and couldn't even play the damned game.

I went to the website, downloaded the the windows version, run it, added BF3 and then let it update. After restarting my computer it is fine. Hope it helps.
Spergin' all day!
