I'm a new user having exactly the same issue as the original poster except I have 3 instances open. I appear to have the character set and the characters activated for the mapped key and have attempted to follow every guide I could find over the last few days with no success. I have cut down my original plans to just 1 key because I know if I can get one to work, I can get them all to work.http://www.privatepaste.com/dc785dbc00

Okay, I would highly prefer that you open a new thread next time and I'll make the determination if your issue is the same as someone else's
Your issue is not the same as the OP's.
The issue YOU are having is that you're playing EQ1 and either didn't select "EverQuest" from the first drop-down when you created this team, OR that after you ran the Quick Setup Wizard, you un-checked the "Make game believe it is foreground window" box in your Character Set. If that box is not checked, you're not going to be able to send keys to the other EQ1 windows, no matter what guide you follow.
Since you've also changed default aspects of the Key Maps that the Quick Setup Wizard made (e.g. the default behavior for any Mapped Key in the "Combat" key map is now to do something whenever you press OR release the Hotkey), I would recommend the following solution:
1. In the File menu, select Clear
2. Run the Quick Setup Wizard and make sure you select EverQuest in the first drop-down box.
This will automatically configure options that are required for EQ1 like "Make game believe it is foreground window"
Then to get started making changes:
3. Quick Start Guide 40, Part 4: Gameplay as a multiboxer
and the section below it (Start customizing) tell you most of what you need to know to get started; most other guides will probably just confuse you.
4. The very latest build of ISBoxer (within the last 24 hours) has a brand new Mapped Key Wizard that can help you create common types of Key Maps.
