Default WinEQ2 failed to attach

I just got a new computer and can not get Everquest to run. When launching via WinEQ2 I get an error that says "WinEQ 2 was able to launch eqgame.exe, but was unable to attach to it". If I try to run Everquest via the Launch Titanium.bat I get a black screen after login.

I read that it could be another program attaching itself to eqgame.exe but I am not sure how to find out. Can anyone help?

Default SOLVED

I solved the issue. It was my kaspersky antivirus blocking something despite adding wineq, eqgame.exe and everquest.exe to the exclusion list. If anyone else has this happen I used Sysinternals Process Explorer to find the culprit. I ran process explorer as admin, searched for eqgame.exe and was able to see the files currently bound to it.

Default Thank you

Thank you for posting this, I've been having the same issue. Any fix other than shutting down Kaspersky when launching?
