I had a total stuff up on my server at home, had to rebuild and re-set it all up and sort my whole network set up out, took a long time. Ended up cannibalising my two main PC's and building a monster of a server with Hyper-V and consolidating all my server stuff into virtual machines on it. Now I just have my Dell XPS for gaming and its being a sod. Found 2142 just will not work, despite the fact it worked prior to all the aforementioned, 2142pace.exe crashes. Tried everything on the internet and reinstalls etc. - nothings working.

I will be back and really miss joining in with everyone.

I'm resigned to not participating and when I eventually do solve this problem I will be back.

I wish I could, this was pretty much the best gaming laptop available at the time of buying - XPS M1730 with every extra and upgrade. You dont want to know how much :S

I'm having a go at solving the issue today, its got my full attention now I've finished teaching myself Hyper-V, Pfsense firewall appliance, making MS SBS 2003 R2 co-exist with MS WHS inside Hyper-V and re-networking it all, oh and reconfiguring 4 laptops accordingly :S

I'm very much in the mood for a good fight lol.

Finally!

From last post til now is how long its taken, got the ea installer game working, patching now and then I will configure and see if it stays working!

Uninstalled the lot, profiles etc. Then reinstall as follows :

Had to add domain user and admin to security for every exe (I have a windows server controlled domain), including ea launcher and punkbuster files, also ran every install, pbservices and pbsetup as admin, somewhere in that lot it seems to have worked. Adittionally every exe,desktop shortcut is set as exception in DEP on Vista 32 bit and all exe's excepted in firewall and norton firewall.

No compatability modes set on anything for earlier OS as overall that advice seems to be BS and can actually break things.

Bit heavy handed but I got fed up tweaking things.

If it does all eventually work I'll be joining in soon :) Time to see what 8800M GTX 512MB cards in SLI mode can do. Should be as good if not better than my 9800 GTX setup was.

NS addon can wait til later....

Wooooo!

Bloody finally, it works again!

Time to dust off the rust and play like a noob until I get into the groove again and fettle my controls. See you in your gunsights soon lol.

Thanks to S.A.F Merrik for deopping me a message to see if I'm still alive and all who spurred me into getting this sorted.:)
