# 1 Install from disc stalling
09-18-2010, 09:05 PM
Hello--
This is my very first post. I looked around the boards for a proper place for installation issues and couldn't find one--just messages telling me to send a note in-game. But as I'm having trouble installing, I can't get in-game yet.

My install just stalls about halfway through, where it says:

Copy to C:\\/Program Files\Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\piggs\bins.hogg

I'm guessing that maybe either I'm not finding a wifi signal strong enough to complete the download--a good wifi signal can be hard to find--or my computer maybe isn't fast enough to finish the install.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot this? I've been dying to play for months and I'm chomping at the bit here!

Thanks

Could someone recommend the best way to communicate this to the right person?

bins.hogg is a big file (several GB) and takes pretty long to install. So long that it seems not to install at all. Give it some time (>30min) and it will work.

Good to know. That said, I am probably going to have to be on the prowl for a better wifi signal, or, wow, actually get it for my home, so I can do actual gameplay. At the moment I'm more interested in creating my crew--I've had in my mind what my species will look like for a long time--so it's not a huge rush.

Thanks

If you could get on a Hard Line instead of WIFI, you might also get better results in your install process.

Some MMO's I played did very poorly on any wireless link.

Yea a hard hook in is what you'll probably need for signal integrity issues...unless the wifi is really that good.......and I havn't found many as MMO play goes.

You'll notice when it comes to install and such with this game it will take a while. Worth it in the end though.



I do likes playin this here game....and so will you.
