Yes. I loved Station Launcher too, and used it up until LP4. I am careful to never let them forget that they promised to put SL's features into the regular LaunchPad. Some feature are there now, but not all.
I've been encouraging people to delete and re-install EQ2 this time. There have been a lot of changes since Shadow Odyssey that leave older installations littered with duplicate or obsolete files. The changes to the default install path even leave duplicate installations of the game. This confuses the application, the user, or both. As an example, I did a search for launchpad.exe on my system and found it installed in three different places beside the EQ2 setup. A couple of these were the original LaunchPad, circa 2008. A fresh start is a good idea.
