But it is sad that you can fix the issue when Cryptic can't be bothered to fix it. It will be a sad day if/when you ever stop playing cause that means after the next patch after that a lot of the rest of us will likely not have a choice but to not play as well. With no one like you around to fix STO for us, cause Cryptic can't be bothered.
This is annoying...either you Cryptic or somebody else update the launcher or upload an uploaded recent one. I am not going to tolerate not being able to play this game because of this persistent problem. You guys ignore and ignore this problem and getting sick! It's disgusting how you guys ignore this problem. This is this: the launcher won't auto update and when threads this one show up you ignore and don't fix your problem I'm not the only one who has it so freaking fix it already so I can play the game. EIther upload a recent updated launcher or something or fix the patch server.
I don't know if this is the right place to post this or not, but I hope it is.
I am getting the same autoupdater problem. I tried renaming the .patch directory, it did not work, not only that, but now I can't rename it back, no matter what I do it says I have to enter a name or something.
I tried downloading and extracting the launcher file on the OP, and it also did nothing.
Now I am worried I messed something up with my game/client. I really hope I don't have to uninstall and reinstall the game, cause that takes up way too much time.
