First, to avoid confusion, be sure to use the new URL (https://lp.soe.com/eqmac/live/
) and remove the "EverQuest Mac Test" app from /Users/username
/Applications if it exists.
There is no longer any reason to have more than one copy cluttering up your hard drive. Be sure and copy over any custom UI's you have loaded into test first.
Next, launch Terminal from Applications/Utilities/Terminal
Next, remove any files that have "running" in the name in the preference folder (IE: EverQuest Mac.running.accountname
) by using:
rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/SOEWebInstaller/EverQuest\ Mac/*.running.*
Finally from within a terminal window use the following command to prevent all reading and writing to the preferences folder.
chmod 0000 ~/Library/Preferences/SOEWebInstaller/EverQuest\ Mac/
Ta-Da! You can now launch as many copies as your computer can handle by just changing the account using the "Switch Account" drop down menu in the new launcher.
Note: you have to have launched EQ at least once before you can use this fix.
