I am playing EQ2 Extended.  I downloaded GU 61, and now when I press Play it says Playing.... launcher goes away, and then I just wait.  Nothing happens.  No error messages or anything.  I've waited for about 10 minutes and still nothing.

In order to get the game running you may need to run it as an administrator going forward. To do so, follow these steps:

- Right-click your shortcut for EverQuest II Extended

- Select Properties

- Navigate to the Compatibility Tab

- Check the box labeled "Run this program as an administrator"

- Click 'OK' and re-launch the game

No no no.  Even if you had done it before, you probably would have had to reset it and do it again.  We replaced the entire file this round.
