You installed BF2
Updated with 1.41
Installed PR with PR86 core installer followed by 86 levels installer
Used default location on 'C' drive.

I don't know why but using the 86 patch didn't work for me.
The game would start to load then in a blink I would be back on the desktop.
I uninstalled PR86, deleted the PR shortcut and the PR folder left inside EA\BF2 folder then
rebooted, reinstalled with both of the full installers (core & levels)and then thankfully everything worked.

Hope it helps
i tried that after you suggested, but it didn't help. The ONLY way i can even get PR to start is to have the target pointing to bf2.exe OR start BF2 and go to community/custom games then select PR. The only problem is that doing it those ways, i'm stuck with the pr.exe message. Like I said, clicking the shortcut or even the .exe itself does nothing. I've tried all I can think of and nothing's worked, guess I'll have to hope .9 works.

Post your Battlefield 2 directory here , and then look in your registry (StartMenu>>Run and type in "regedit"). Find where your battlefield 2 key is and tell me that location.

Tell me where your profiles directory is as well, and finally tell me what system OS you are running and whether your BF2 install is from disk or EA downloader please.

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2 that's the bf2 directory

i can't seem to find the key, but where the bf2 stuff is: hkey_local_machine/software/electronic arts/ea games/battlefield 2

C:\Documents and Settings\(my name)\My Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles

it was installed from the disk. I'm running windows xp SP3
I hope that's what you needed.

Yes , thats all perfectly normal. You shouldn't be experiencing any problems with that directory structure.

So it must be something else. Did your .NET install fine ?
