If you receive an error telling you that your Punkbuster is either out of date or not installed when trying to start your game:

Head to the Battlefield 4 installation folder, C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4 by default, then find the _Installer folder.
In _Installer, find and navigate into the Punkbuster folder, and from there, into the redist folder.
Find and run pbsvc.exe to update or repair your Punkbuster installation.


If the above folders don’t exist in your installation:

Head to punkbuster.com and click the Download PBSetup button, and select the option “For All Windows Games."
Open pbsetup.zip, then run pbsetup.exe. Accept the EULA, follow the instructions, update PunkBuster, and then click Add a Game.
In the drop down menu, select Battlefield 4, then Add Game, and finally, before trying to run Battlefield 4 again, Check for Updates.

If you are kicked from your game and receive the error, PunkBuster kicked player 'your name' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe),” the above steps will help resolve your issues as well.

dice didnt ban you, you would need to appeal to the server owner

I am going to be your best friend! I have just the fix for you, It works 99.9+% of the time for this specific error, no exageration, the old reinstall punkbuster alone fixes this for only a few, as the issue is usually firewall related, I show you how to do a proper fix for this issue. EA should be paying me for how many players I have got back into the game.

Please go see my video, I made a step by step video showing you how to correct this issue, It only takes a couple minutes to fix and it is easy, just follow along. No bs, just me getting you back into the battle. please post back if it works and dont forget to like the video or better yet subscribe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qh7ayrsynr0&list=TLhD4jMHT0zi4 [youtube.com]
