Everquest requires that you install DirectX 9.0c separately. You still need to do this even if you have DirectX 10. Link to Microsoft installer.

if your problem is that the button never changes from "Updating" to "Play", then right click on your shortcut to Everquest, select Properties, Compatibility Tab, Set to run as Admin.

For Vista/Windows 7 users, To avoid problems with over-zealous security, it is best to install to a directory that isn't under "Program Files" - for example "C:Everquest". You should also set the properties of the Everquest short cut so that it runs as Administrator.

    • What do you mean by “doesn’t work”? If you installed from the link in the article, then Everquest should be good to go. Unless you have a different problem, of course.
