The worst thing about this game is its launcher. Serious Cryptic, this needs looking into. Even on my squeaky clean laptop, on a 20Mbit connection, it seemed content to sit there for 15 minutes before it even bothered to try and collect a patch since I had missed the last one.
For the OP. another thing to try is right click the launcher link and run it in XP compatibility mode (SP2 I think (providing you're on a OS above windows xp)).
This was the trick I used to get working after leaving the game for about 6+ months. nothing else I did worked, replacing the exe, fussing with the router, nada.
I have known people in my fleet just give up on the game because they could not figure out why the launcher would fail.
