Hello,
I've recently updated my OS to Windows 8.1. Now I'm getting kicked by PunkBuster every time I join a game session.
I have already contacted Ubi's customer support, but no response yet.
Does anybody know this problem and has a solution ?

Greets,
Cold

Edit: And I already checked for PunkBuster updates, there are none.

Hi, i have solved in this way:
1) Download PBSVC at evenbalance: http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe
2) Save the file on your desktop and run it as administrator
3) Select "Install/Re-install punkbuster service" and click next
Probably you'll get an error like "failed to copy file...". Despite this, it worked for me.
I have only tried to run ACR MP ;)
