May 17 Game Update Brings Problems.....and Solutions

The May 17, 2023 Game Update is causing issues for a number of players. It seems to be due to the new UI engine.

Here are some solutions:

If you are unable to launch EQ due to a file or entry point not found, first run the LaunchPad/patcher again. If that doesn't fix it, you can try to update your Windows. Go to this Microsoft webpage and download the Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022 - X64 file and run it.

If you have a white background in your Inventory window, see this post on Daybreak forum. You can try updating your graphics driver which might or might not help, however, the Daybreak forum post idea should work.

 Update: More through instructions on how to revert to the old UI windows is in this post on the Daybreak forum.
