Patcher error: A file was locked that could not be open for writing.
 
I decided to dust off Star Trek Online and give it a try again after months of not playing it.
So, I launch Star Trek Online.exe and a little screen pops up, saying "Trying to update the launcher. Please be patient. Tried connecting 1 time."
Then, I get the following error message:
Patcher error: A file was locked that could not be open for writing.

What happened and how to fix this?

Note: I have found a topic with the same issue:
http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...ad.php?t=75806

However, the server doesn't seem to be offline nor I can find a file called "Star Trek Online.exe.deleteme", only the original launcher.

Thanks for you time.



Edit: Fixed, ran it as administrator. :)

Fixed it already by simply running as administrator.
Btw, your link has an XML error...

Gah windows, the first thing I do after installing that OS is turn user account control off, it's probably the stupidest feature I've ever seen in an OS.

My new comp came with windows 8...I am not sure how I feel about this at this time, but running the game as admin got me to the patching part. Hopefully that will be my only issue :)
