Im having the exact same problem and have no clue what could be the cause. I'll look into trying a few things though and will report back if i get it working.

Where did you guys get the client from? I have the same error and I downloaded the fileplanet download util that had 20091228, then it patched to 20100108a.0 (1.4gb patch or so), then on monday patched to the latest. I'm wondering if its not a problem with patching from the old version to the OB version.... I'm redownloading from the torrent listed on the official download page.

Yeah i did the same Headshok, i downloaded the closed beta client from FilePlanet then patched it. Could that be the problem?

Im currently downloading the open beta client and will reinstall and try again.

There is another thread about this problem and we have a person in there that downloaded from the official download page yesterday, so I'm guessing that we are ok with our download site, however I am downloading as we speak from the offical torrent, 3MB/sec so hopefully it finishes soon and I'll know for sure.

I did ask the other thread to post specs, so far only one responded. We both have Win7 x64, he has latest ATI drivers, I have latest Nvidia, so...

I'm wondering does anybody have this problem on a 32bit system?

From what i remember from CO (I did not have this problem, but others did).

People needed to run the client in Administrative mode (if they had a Vista machine).
(right click the program .exe file, brings up a context menu, should be an option to "Run as" underneath)

Since i am completely unfamiliar with Win7, i couldn't say.

But Vista users had a heck of a time with this problem.

Hmm, im running W7 64bit with a q9550 @ 3.8GHz, 4gb Ram and an 8800GTS. All drivers for sound and gfx are up-to-date.

I was at work so got my gf to install it once the dl had finished then it patched itself. Funny thing is when i ran the STO downloader again just now its downloading even more files, so i'll wait till thats finished then reinstall again and try it.
