Played fine yesterday. Today the patcher gets two errors

"Connection Problem"
Unable to establish connection to Patch Server. Please check your Internet connection.
If problems persist, please contact Technical Support.

"Patcher error"
The patchclient got a message while it was in a state with no response function

I have seen the first one before, but as for the second "Patcher error" thats a new one to me.

Meh, post and repost for all the good it does. It's not a new problem. Doing a search about this issue only shows how wide spread the problem is for this company.

It's just shameful.

I've got the some problem, but alas I've tried everything from clearing the IE cache to downloading a new launcher . . to no avail.

Tried pinging the update server and connects fine. Now all I get is the delightful; "Patch client got a message while it was in a state with no response function."

What to do . . ?

Solution to your Launcher Autoupdate problem
Go to this link. I downloaded his launcher and it worked.

Didn't work for me. Guess I'll just wait for Cryptic's official patch.

Similar for me, but I actually got kicked from the game beforehand.

As of right now, the launched established connection and is patching some monstrous 4 GB of data. I have no idea why. The next patch is still half a day away, and it shouldn't be that big.

There have been some issues with the Cogent server host that STO uses. If your problem persists after trying the usual options (restart, new launcher install, etc.) run a tracert on the Cryptic IP: (for Windows 7 type cmd into the search bar of the start menu and in the screen that pops up put in: "tracert" (minus the quotation marks). Send those results with a nettest (available through PWE support page; just google it) and your IP address as a support ticket to PWE. There is a PWE tech support forum post on this which the devs have posted on asking players to do this if the problem persists. Hope this helps.

Thanks, happily, it's working now. (I just wonder what those 4GB were. It felt like I redownloaded the whole game.)
