The usual culprits are firewall or your internet connection. You might try posting in the EQ2X support forums for better help:

I don't know why you cannot get to that link. If you have downloaded the patcher you've also made a Station Account, which gives you access to that link.

The patcher for EQ2X is designed to let you into the game before the game is fully downloaded. It's supposed to continue to download content while you play. Can you not get into the game at all? If not, are you getting any kind of error?

Is there a certain file it gets stuck on? If so, try deleting that file and force it to re-download.

If it's just stuck at a certain percentage, it's possible that it's downloading a huge file. Zone files in particular take a really long time to download. In this case, I'd suggest letting it sit at the download screen for a while (an hour or two, or even let it run overnight while you're sleeping) and see how it progresses.

You said it downloaded everything, but then you tried to uninstall it? I'm confused now.

But anyway, the way it works is this: before it downloads the entire game, it gives you enough files to start playing. Because you're not going to need access to the entire game right away, it gives you access to the character creator and all the starting areas. And while you're running around in those starting areas, the rest of the game is downloading while you play.

Also, this was never asked, but since you're using Windows 7, do you have the game set to run in Administrator mode? Maybe even in Windows XP SP2 compatibility. Right click the EQ2X icon and tell it to run as administrator.

And after that, I think I'm out of ideas.

You were probably trying to fire it up while the servers were down for a hotfix :)

Have you tried logging in before it completely downloads? You really don't have to let it download all the way. And the few times I've used the streaming patcher if it sticks, I just close it and reopen it and it starts downloading again.

The patcher you use for EQ2X is a streaming patcher. That means it streams the download while you're playing. You don't have to wait for all the content to download before you can play. You should have a green button saying "Play" and underneath that it's telling you how much content it's still downloading. But since you really don't need the entire game right away, it allows you to go ahead and log in. Zones are added as you need them.

I believe that when it's downloading while you're in game, you see a little dragon running in one of the corners of your screen.

The little dragon is just a representation so you know that files are being downloaded and loaded into the game for you. There's also a number represented in kb with him.
