This has nothing to do with WinEQ, and everything to do with today's EverQuest patch. As they explain in the patch message:

Code: Select all

*** We've now upgraded to DirectX 9.0c! ***

- Continuing our efforts to keep pace with current technology, EverQuest will be upgrading to DirectX9.0c to allow us to take advantage of many of the new features and fixes since our last upgrade in the middle of 2003. You will need to be sure that you are currently running DirectX9.0C . If not you will need to download it. This can be done by simply going to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=56513.

Make sure you:

1. Get the April 2006 DirectX 9.0C redistributable version (Caution: Download is about 52 MB) at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=fb73d860-5af1-45e5-bac0-9bc7a5254203.

2. Run directx_apr2006_redist.exe. Extract the files to an easily identifiable directory.

3. Go to the directory the files were extracted to in step 2. Run "DXSETUP.EXE" from that directory.

4. Accept the license agreement. Allow the installer to update the DirectX components.
