this would be great (I use eqw) if only I didn't crash to desktop every single fricking time I switch skins (nothing wrong with the skin, loads fine afterwards, just EQ problem).

I also have had a problem with dumping to desktop after loading a custom skin a few times in a row. I usually get 3 or 4 loads before it dumps me. However, I have discovered that if I load the default skin every few times, I can continue to work in-game without be dumped (ie. load custom, make changes, load custom, make changes, load default, load custom, make changes, load custom, make changes, load default,...etc).

comp2 can connect using my network places, can access the root drive, my shared folder, and shared documents folder.

try to open program files i get the following message:
"\\comp1\program files is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Access is denied."

what am i doing wrong here?


Note sure if you have resolved this or not by now. But, if not (or for anyone else who experiences this), the problem is related to the default access permissions assigned by Windows XP to the so called "system folders" such as C:\Program Files and C:\Windows. You need to grant access to the Everyone user group. Check out Microsoft Knowledge Base Article Q308418 (http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...kb;en-us;308418) for information on how to change the permissions.

These are pretty old posts. With the alt-enter putting EQ game in a window, the same thing can be done with one computer and alt-tabbing out to your editor, folders and word pad type viewer for error checking.

Default Sharing in XP

make sure you have privlages on both computers. XP wont let you use any resources if it doesnt know you. just make sure that the username you login as has an account on the other computer with the same password. (the users icon in control panel) that way when you ask to look at comp 2 from comp1 it checks to see who you are in its users list and if it knows you it allows you access. hope this helps!!!
post back if you need more details

Default Share access issues

Sounds like your PCs are in a workgroup. As such, each PC has control of its own resources. Adding the Everyone group will not help in this case due to the Everyone group being specific to THAT PC. You need to think of PCs in a workgroup as self contained worlds - It only knows what it contains.

You need to create a user account on each PC that exists on the other (i.e. On Comp 1 you have user 1 and on Comp 2 you have user 2 - You need to create user 2 on Comp 1 and User 1 on Comp 2) You could also try to add the user from the other PC as a authorized user in the user manager (Right click on "My Computer", left click on "Manage", Left click on "Users & Groups") Depending on which PC is the Browse Master you MAY have issues hence my first solution.

Your other option is if you have a spare PC and a copy of some version of server (NT/2000/2003) you can create a Domain and join your PCs to the domain and have the domain control rights. It boils down to not having rights to access the data - not that you can't see the data.

Hope that helps.

I do similar but with a sinlge PC.

I just break EQ down into windows mode, make UI changes in a seperate window, maximize EQ then reload the UI.

Instead of using EQW ... use ALT-ENTER and then SHIFT-ALT-R to release the mouse ... and with that option already in EQ, why is using EQW against the EULA? I have briefly looked at the homepage for EQW and might have missed something ... what does EQW do exactly, that is a violation?

Note : I dont ever think I have read the EULA
