EQ2 for vista?

LaviticusLaviticus Member Posts: 33

Will EQ2 work on a vista? I tried the trial and it didn't get past the Launch pad. I hit play and it says Playing and nothing.

    I had no trouble running the game on Vista Home Premium 64bit for years.  You should still be able to play it with out any trouble.

    I play the game with Vista 64bit and my girlfriend uses Vista 32bit and it runs fine. Make sure that you are running it as an administrator.

    Same here, I'm playing with Vista Home 64 since years now without problems.

    It runs fine on any version of vista, however I had problems with the streaming launcher when I played the trial a couple of weeks ago, try downloading the station launchpad and download it from there, if it's the streaming launcher that isn't working. I will stress however that the game is 10.2 gb in size.

    You have to run EQ2 as an administrator.  Right click on the EQ2 icon on your desktop, and then selelct  "Run as Administrator".  You shouldn't have any problemns doing it that way.

    <edit> I have EQ2 installed on 2 Vista machines.  One I run from the Station Laucher and the other from the EQ2 icon.  Both ways work fine.

    I had problems with the Steam launcher like the poster above said,   I set up EQ2 to bypass the Steam launcher and didn't have any further problems.<end edit>

    Im aware of the 'Run as admistrator' I have to do EQ 1 the same. But it still didn't work how do I bypass the streaming launcher?

    Please explain the process on how to do it please?

    I am running Vista 64 just fine.  Without much to go on, your issue sounds like you are not running as admin.


    Try executing from the Station Launcher and not from the EQ2 launcher.

    Where do I go to get this 'station launcher'?

    Follow this link and the Station Launcher info is on the bottom-right hand side of the page. You click on the download icon and it will prompt you to save stationLauncher_setup.exe on your computer. Then you select the game to download within the launcher:

    The station launcher will download the entire game on your pc whilst the streaming launcher will download each zone separately while you are playing. I personally had nothing but trouble with the streaming launcher and am now using the old eq2.exe launchpad (but for this option you'll need to buy the boxed version of the game).
