What type of AV/IS software are you using? Can you disable it temporary and then check again?

Also check that your drive is not encrypted and that your My Documents> Battlefield 2 folder is not set to read only.

I am having the same problem I think. I used windows task manager and found out that pr.exe stops taking more processor speed at around 11,000k - 12,000k and that BF2.exe never launches. I think that this has something key to do with the problem. Any suggestions?

Only thing I can think of is PR.exe is unable to find or launch BF2.exe for some reason.

As I said above add +menu 1 +fullscreen 0 to your shortcut target line and any errors should be displayed. Make sure you installed PR in Battlefield 2 root directory.

Check your registry entries by pressing Win+R and type regedit. Search for these values

Quote:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Battlefield 2
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Project Reality\Project Reality: BF2
Take screenshots of both if possible and post here.

ACE1918 you MUST start vanilla BF2, create a profile, login, join a multiplayer server online,
while playhing on the vanilla BF2 server, adjust your video settings to your preferences.
shut down vanilla BF2, then start PR,


this has to be done to create the registry entries and the /mydocs/battlefield2/ directories.

Report back here if still a problem.

Sgt.Snapyaneck,
follow Massive's directions on post #13 above,
make sure your InstallDir Key is set to your BF2 installation folder in your reply #10.
make sure your Version Key is set to Full 0973

I had the same problem the first time ive downloaded PR.

You need to play vanilla BF2 first, join a server, then install PR.

I hope it works.
