Thanks everyone. I rebooted the computer and I uninstalled and reinstalled The RedGuides launcher. And the two were my fix. I'm sorry if I seem slow to understand. I had a stroke two years ago. The entire reason I came back to Everquest was to do the menial questing I hated to try and rebuild some Neuro Pathways. No new language or anything else has stuck. I always hated questing. I figured to offset that with the game but there isn't always grouping. I've been loving Very Vanilla and RCMercs as my first program. But I still struggle with some of the most practical of things. It's very frustrating. For instance I wanted to build a Guild Hall. I wasted hours looking for the "Marketplace" that sold Writs. I even posted on the EQ forums where I'm pretty sure they think I'm insane by now. But it's so frustrating not being able to figure things out especially, after the fact when they occur to you. Those simple reason skills I just lost. Anyway thanks eveyone you can take this thread down now. MY Macroquest Loads fine.
Robren, you're doing great, I'm sorry to hear about your struggles, but i commend you for continually working on yourself, I'm sure sometimes it feels overwhelming
since a reboot and/or reinstall worked, i'd recommend checking if your AV is quarantining MQ/RG/EQ files, it is one of the most common reasons people have problem updating/running.
As far as eq goes and some of their implementations of things - I hear ya --- you having a stroke isn't the reason trying to get a writ was so tough - EQ has just done a shit job explaining some things, and the game relies heavier than it should on 3rd party sites/forums/guides.
