A reminder about installing Planes of Power


If you are installing Planes of Power as an expansion of your existing EverQuest installation, please make sure that you install it in the directory where you installed EverQuest. If you choose a different directory when installing the expansion, you may encounter some problems while trying to access the expansion.

Obviously if you are installing Planes of Power as a new installation (the CD does include Classis EverQuest), then you can't install it in the existing directory. :)

Here's some information from our tech help forum:


When you install Planes of Power, make sure that the Destination directory listed in the installation is the same as your current EQ directory. If it is not, click the BROWSE button and navigate to your EQ directory (usually C:\\Program Files\\EverQuest or C:\\Program Files\\Sony\\EverQuest Trilogy).

If you have installed PoP, but are unable to enter the Planar zones, it is likely that you now have a dual installation of EQ. Do a search for everquest.exe and ppatch.exe. There should be only one copy of each and they should be in the same Windows directory. If there are two everquest.exe files, you will need to completely uninstall EverQuest and each expansion in backwards order:

Planes of Power
Shadows of Luclin
EverQuest: SOV
EverQuest Trilogy
EverQuest

After uninstalling, reinstall EQ in the order of release. There are four possible install scenarios, depending on which version of EQ you have. Depending on your version, install in the following orders:

If you installed EQ with EQ Classic (disk or download version):

EQ Classic
Ruins of Kunark Upgrade
Scars of Velious
Shadows of Luclin
Planes of Power

The default directory for this installation is C:\\Program Files\\EverQuest

If you installed EQ with the Ruins of Kunark CD:

EQ Ruins of Kunark
Scars of Velious
Shadows of Luclin
Planes of Power

The default directory for this installation is C:\\Program Files\\EverQuest

If you installed EQ with the Trilogy:

EQ Trilogy
Shadows of Luclin
Planes of Power

The default directory for this installation is C:\\Program Files\\Sony\\EverQuest Trilogy If you installed EQ for the first time with the Planes of Power disk:

EQ Planes of Power
Ruins of Kunark Upgrade
Scars of Velious
Shadows of Luclin

The default directory for this installation is C:\\Program Files\\Sony\\EverQuest

If you have EverQuest Classic and seperate disks for Ruins of Kunark and/or Scars of Velious as well as the Trilogy, only install the Trilogy. It is not necessary to install the Classic CD's if you have the Trilogy, as this may create another dual installation.

Hopefully this information will make installation a little smoother for some folks.
