Manually updating punkbuster for aa3
There are a number of different ways to host an America's Army 3 Server.

Punk Buster is designed to keep itself up to date using our proprietary auto-update system.
For cases where the auto-update fails, we have created a utility named PBSetup that can manually update one or more installations of Punk Buster.
I tried to manualy update PB from official link and it worked for me.

As for the pb folder, the is treated as an updater/installer so basically it creates or overwrites the pb folder.
