Thats how i run the game, i click on the wrapper icon i downloaded from this thread then i click 'install star trek online' then go into the applications where i placed the star trek online exe, click it and then the launcher loads, hit engage...then the error appears
the installer is only for runnign the setup.exe downloaded or off the DVD.

You have an already installed and ready to run version of Star Trek Online, so you need to follow the directions about moving it from Windows or upgrading from an older wrapper.

Basically you need to move the game folder to the right spot inside the Star Trek, and then when its in the right place, you'll be able to just double click Star Trek and play.
