I wonder why STO hasn't fixed this yet?
YUP... I have the same issue as well. I have played the whole game and now trying to do the smaller missions. I have played without sound all this time. I will try the -ignorex64check option to see if it resolves the issue.

There has been no patches for this issue. I guess the company believes XP 64bit is no longer an issue since the belief is the majority of people are using Windows 7 or will be upgraded soon in the future. This infact has happened, by judging what I have read in these threads. Hopefully, Windows 8 will resolve help this issue. Just remember , your PC must be running Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 Consumer Preview, to do an upgrade to Windows 8 or Windows 8 Release Preview.If your PC is running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you'll need to reinstall your apps.

I still think this should have been made for Mac and Linux as well. however, the company was smart to launch this for 32bit systems, as the majority of users are slow to switch to 64-bit systems. I mean just look at all the users in companies... is it 64bit or 32 bit they are using... ?? I'm sure though they are gearing up for a shard/deploy for 64-bit... they must have a testing environment somewhere with this and are taking out all the tweeks... they may even be preparing to have another environment for 32 and 64 bit users... just speculating.... or call it 'very wishfull' thinking. hehehe
