you can maybe check the control panel for all the updates/patches that were installed.
That one came out on the 8th I think.Don't know if the download files were fixed.

Just a quick update.

Downloading new files worked, no idea what was going on with the other can only assume that they were corrupted.

Lots of love

But i can verify Win7 & PR like each other

Not sure what's causing your mentioned problems.
You have no problems with PB? If so, looks like time I got 7 installed.

Punkbuster was fixed after some considerable protest from the community and some pressure from DICE probably. See the punkbuster and windows thread thats stickied for the long story.

I updated another PC to win7

This time used the DVD to upgrade an existing win xp x64 install, rather then a clean
one.It actually worked too

Win7 BF2/PR and PB have been tested by a quite a few people in the community (myself and DarkPowder included). Since the server side update, there has been no PB kicks for unknown windows API on 23 bit version. x64 still has bugs as with XP x64 and Vista x64. PR is confirmed working with PB. Still a few graphical errors for some people. but they can be fixed by changing compatibility.

Hey Socket, any chance you could post that process up and PM me when you've got it up? I only recently reinstalled Vista64, and I'm keen to move to W7 but I'd rather like to avoid the lengthy and painful backup, format, install, reinstall, restore process...

Cheers chap!

I just put the DVD in,clicked "Update Now" and ~30m later it was done.
It put the "old windows" into a folder (windows.old) along with the documents,program files etc from the prevuis instalation (of xp64)
That was it.
It did not keep any of the old programs,I can access them but not run it - have to reinstall.
So something to keep in mind.

I had the same problem (W7 Ultimate RC) - clicking on .exe's resulted in flashing black screen.
What you have to do is simply right click on the .exe file and "Run as Administrator". Worked for me.
