Default Can't Start up PR

I hadn't played Pr is a while and apparently I had to change my shortcut to pr.exe, so I tried doing that and it didn't work (I'm using Vista). Instead I just have been starting up bf2 and then switching to Pr from the custom games tab, but yesterday when i tried to play, Pr wasn't on the custom games tab for some reason?

I have pr still in my mods folder, and inside is still the application PR, and when I check the properties it is pr.exe, so i tried creating a new shortcut from that application-pr.exe, and it didn't work. I opened the shortcut's properties and changed it to what the forum posts said:
Target: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe" start /+modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1

start in: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\"

but somehow when I use the shortcut, it just starts up vanilla BF2?
I tried just opening the application pr.exe inside the pr folder and it said "bf2 does not exist. Please check your working directory......"

Can somebody help?

What's that... "start /" doing there? Get rid of it and it should work fine.

Paste PR.EXE into X/Battlefield 2

Also, use more informative titles next time please. I changed it this time.

I took out the start/ and I pasted pr.exe into the battlefield 2 folder, and it's still the same

Check PRs desktop short cut "target" window. It should have pr.exe in it
like this in Vista:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe"+modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1


Like this in XP:
"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe"+modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1


Or to force the game to only use one cpu like this in Vista:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe" start /AFFINITY 2 +modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1

Like this in XP:

"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe"+modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1

The reason?
To paraphrase [R-MOD]Masaq:
"What pr.exe does is basically load up BF2.exe with a set of additional instructions - "Run as usual, but instead of normal shaders uses PRs own". It allows the mod to use additional shaders that BF2 doesn't include as standard - basically, the supression effects."

You should know PR.exe is a text file about 876 K

Can you run BF2 OK still?

reinstall:

1.41.patch
core
levels

Then check your shortcut again.

Use search to find many threads on this.

Hope this helps

Perhaps use "mods\pr" instead of the forward "/"?

As DeadFast already posted it, I suggest you go to:

http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-...-start-pr.html

Then check if it worked, if not, come back

Try removing the back slash after Battlefield in the lower window "start in"
start in (in XP )should be:
"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2"

In Vista:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2"

copy and paste that in your shortcuts "start in" window and try it again.

hope it helps
