    Buddy just gave me an old laptop and was trying to get eq to run on it but keep getting an error when trying to launch. Anyone have any tips?

    Upgrade to windows 7+

    Or get the files from someone else and bypass launcher

    just keep in mind anytime game patches you will have to get the files over again to keep up to date from your windows 10 machine

    Well after moving my folder to the vista I kept getting a missing mss32.dll and I couldn't fix it no matter what, so I uninstalled and reinstalled using steam. did the patchme trick and it actually loaded and brought me to the log in screen but now I keep getting unable to connect to the log in server. Most of the time I can't even get it to work on the windows 10 computer.. any tips?

    Just install to C:\Everquest. I had trouble getting EQ to run when it installed to User\Games etc. so I just reinstalled as i showed, and then make sure your firewall has an exception for EQ. you may also want to download the MS DX9c redistributable.
    Oh, also can the laptop play 3D games? do you know what the GPU (video card) is installed? if it can may need to check the drivers for it.
