1. have you read this one? Project Reality Standard Installation Information
if not check the "VISTA USERS" marked sections - and try the hotfix

2. are you sure your download is ok, did you dl via torrent? (e.g. modjives core installer is broke - would have given you a "missing file" message on installation)

3. have you got up-to-date drivers?

if you haven't already set the the link to run as Admin as in the linked post - thats what I think your issue sounds most likely

veryfy your download's file integrity by using sha or md5 or crc - what ever is provided

and to be honest the automatic driver update is bollux for gamers
i suggest getting latest drivers for
a) your gfx card
b) your sound card
from the manufactuerer's site (ati, nvidia, creative)


for the hotfix, this should lead you to a valid download
scroll down to "Update information"

edit: also would be good to know if this happens for the regular BF2 as well - and i asume you patched bf to v.1.41!?

Hash'em all! Free online text and file hashing

use the SHA1 code to compare with the one you get when you scan the file using the above website

edit: need a different site this one only allows 10mb files

FDM - FreeDownloadManager is capable of checking file integrity - actually your download manager should support it anyhow - for FDM its "Shift+I"

you could also just redownload the file if that's more convinient to you - we want to make sure ur installer is not broke - next step would be to reinstall pr

after that i gotta say again: driver updates
vista only automatically downloads the latest CERTIFIED drivers - which are most likely NOT the latest drivers of your manufacturer (the manufactuerer has to pay for the drivers to be certified - so they will just do it every so often)
