PunkBuster issues

Hello everyone,

While trying to play on the #06 - VIC-RO2 server, I have been kicked by Punkbuster several times with the error message

"Service Communication Failure : PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed."

I have Punkbuster enabled in the settings, and I have played on the server previously to today without issues. I have stopped and restarted the client, but that has not worked. I am running a Windows 8.1 system with the latest release of Rising Storm.

Any hints, tips, suggestions, etc, will be gratefully accepted.

Thanking you in advance for your help,

Never mind. I figured it out. I need to reinstall PunkBuster, and the Steam client was interfering. Once I shut it down, then ran the reinstall, all went well, and I am back to being a live clay pigeon for the enemy troops.
