View Full Version : unzipping map issues
12-22-2007, 11:08 AM
I have a problem. I cannot unzip the maps into c:/programs/sony/everquest/maps. It gives me an error message like this: Access is denied: Cannot create. Am I doing something wrong or is it something on your end?
Please help. I need my maps.

Sounds like a permissions issue on your end. Are you using Vista?

Yes, my computer has Vista. It came with it on it.

I am also having problems downloading the map packs on my computer that uses Vista. I have all the maps on my other computer downloaded just fine for EQ. I follow the steps and put the maps into the appropriate folder (suggested in the FAQs), it overwrites the old ones. Then sometimes I get the error message show in a previous post and sometimes it finishes the job. But I still do not see the maps I wanted in game. If there is a way for the site admin to help us this issue please do.

Found out what my problem was... My WinRAR had expired. So I downloaded WinZIP. Why can't windows just come with that? Didn't they hose me enough for the program?

Try putting the map pack on an external then taking the unzipped files from the external and put them back in the eq folder.
