Saw a guy on discord with the same issue. It ended up being the two DSETUP.dll files. It was using the old one rather than the new one. You have to delete/rename the old one to get it to use the new one.

My dsetup.ll is 2.91 MB if that helps figuring out which is which.

Another issue with linux is that the name of DSETUP.dll is case sensitive. It needs to be in all caps. That and make sure you got rid of the right one.

I found 2 things needed and I was finally able to get it to work.
1. You need to right click the dsetup.dll and down there at the bottom you may have an option to "unblock" it. You need to click that if it's there as that will stop the computer from allowing the DLL to be accessed
2. Make sure you run eqgame.exe in winxp sp2 compatability mode, I read a thread before to do 98 / ME and that is what it was set at for me, saw another thread to use win xp sp2 and that worked for me.
