BF3 and Windows 8 upgrade
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:01:35 pm »
Just finnished my Windows 8 Pro upgrade.

Everything seems to work fine regarding BF3 so far, except for some problems with Punkbuster.

Found a solution that seems to work fine;

1. Uninstall Punkbuster using Search/Setting/Uninstall a Program (probably other ways, but still learning the best ways around Windows 8)
2. Delete the folder C:\Users\<YourWindowsUsername>\appdata\local\PunkBuster\BF3\
3. Reinstall PunkBuster (useing pbsetup linked below) and after running it, add BF3 to the games list. http://www.punkbuster.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php
4. Run this to reinstall Punkbuster Services and test the connection.

5. Restart Windows for good measure and start BF3
