If you connect and then get kicked after about a minute of play time because of a punkbuster error, this will fix it.

The problem is that the version of punkbuster you have (0.993) has a bug in it that doesn't allow it to auto update to the next version (you guessed it, 0.994).

You need to manually update to 0.994

To do this, go here. Click on the bottom link for Win32 players and follow the directions.

It involves replacing two files, so it's easy to do. Alternatively you could probably reinstall PunkBuster and have it auto update from its initial version to 0.994, but I didn't try it.

No it's just SoF2 specific. They don't have any other client versions of PB listed on their support page.
