Did it come with a new motor or did you transplant your old motor ?

Using old motor... nothing was wrong with the motor

Is there DIY that shows the layout of the front driver side window? I have 3 star looking screws up top and 2 10mm for the bottom?

The curvature of the guide rail is not correct ---> binding half way through.

This is the REAR regulator DIY I did a while back, but I showed where the problem could be, see post #16:

I had a problem with my window getting stuck half way. I lubed the track and it solved my problem. Hope that helps.

Why not type /driver side window regulator in the best links?

You will never get a thread with more pictures than that!
