Re: Error 1301
Make sure your firewall and or antivirus is not blocking PRLauncher and PRBF2.exe.

Re: Error 1301
Also a simplified way to get up and running:

(This worked for me and i don't know if it will work for others)

1. Download 'Portforward Setup Static IP Adress' (completely free)
2. Install it......
3. When you run it, at the bottom there should be a button that says 'Make it Dynamic' click that button and it will make your IP address dynamic.
4. Run the PR launcher and you should get an update.

It should be FIXED!
I'm sorry if it doesn't work for anyone else.

Re: Error 1301
Here is a test to see if it's a network issue:

PRLauncher apparently resolves that hostname which points to a couple of IPV4/V6 addresses belonging to akamaitechnologies hosts that host the BF2PR file verification list for the particular version you're running.

If you click the link above your browser should throw up a "Save As" dialog or something asking you to download a "hashes_1.0.36.0.prhf" file. That file is just a PK zipped compressed file that can be decompressed to plain text using WinZip/WinRAR/7zip/etc, that contains a list of SHA1 hashes for the important PRBF2 game content.

I found that if PRLauncher cannot resolve the above hostname then you'll get the 1301 error returned.

Re: Error 1301
And one more thing, it could be an error in your .NET Framework ,

I think it was just throwing 1301 because it was confused. Because I'm always deeply suspicious of .NET at all times, I ran Windows Updater and included some "optional" updates to the .NET 3.5 framework and also ran the .NET 4 repair tool. I ran the launcher and it worked fine! Verified the files, updated smoothly! Hopefully this will be helpful for others in the 1301 boat the 1301 error does not always mean a network problem

Re: Error 1301
I have tried all of these things and none of them have fixed the 1301 error do you have anything else?

Re: Error 1301
let's try this:

Go to the network adapter you use to connect to the Internet, select "Properties", on the "Networking" tab untick "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)", OK it, then restart the machine. Run PR, and if it still fails, make another ProcMon log if you can and paste it here.

If that doesn't work, please follow the directions here:

If you could do the following it should prove helpful: Grab this Process Monitor application and extract/run it (it's free and clean - no need to install - no bs included).

On startup, set the "Filter" popup window to the following:

Process Name > is > PRLauncher.exe > then > Include > Add > OK

There are five icons top right on the main window when it opens that allow for toggling on/off what gets displayed; uncheck all except "Show Network Activity", then run PRLauncher and attempt to launch/update the game. ProcMon will produce an output that should indicate exactly what it's doing. The process goes something like the following:


Start PRLauncher;
1. UDP domain lookup (
2. TCP connect to ( = ticker data
        On Error = "Error loading news..."

Launch game;
3. UDP domain lookup (
4. TCP connect to ( = user login
        On Error = "1004: Error connecting to server. (10061)"

5. UDP domain lookup (
6. TCP connect to (random akamai/other host) = verification list
        On Error = "1301: Unable to contact verification server. Please check your internet connection and try again."

If you could post the output from that then that'd be great. Just save the result out in plaintext CSV form and paste it here (you can open it in Notepad to copy it), or you could just screenshot it.

A little long-winded all this, but trying to drill down to the fault here. ;)
