Same here. Was booted twice and now cannot get the launcher to load. I was planning to publish a foundry mission.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)

I came back to it today (finished downloading it in Steam while I was at work today) and at first,it gave me some kind of error about a file being locked. I tried a second time and the normal login window showed up. It's now downloading a 864 MB patch.My worry is a version difference between what Steam thinks is right and what STO recognizes is right. Maybe Steam brought it back a version and STO is now downloading the buggy one that constantly loses connection and rubber bands all the time O_o. I won't know until the patch finishes.

If you got that locked file error,try again. I will operate on the assumption that you just tried to load STO once and got this error. If you got the same old error as before,I am not sure what to say. It seems to have worked for me,but I am not 100% sure,as I am not in the game yet. I hope I can be soon,I am literally an inch away from making it to Rear Admiral Lower (40) and the mission I was doing and was just about to finish,before this problem started for me,would have gotten me there.Needless to say,I was more than annoyed,lol.

Edit:It has worked for me and I am back in the same mission I was in,though I have to start it over. Good news is,it seems to be running much smoother with seemingly less lag. I hope it stays that way.

Same here, new player with old is it possible that there is a thread from 2011 with 300 pages of people having the same issue and still exist?

because it's an issue with perfect world or cryptics main servers.

The open beta for Neverwinter is getting the same exact thing when opening up that game.

Dang... this is sad, really. Last night and again tonight. Could they be the target of some sort of attack? I mean cyber attack, or maybe sabotage by competitors or disgruntled employee. How many more looses can PWE/Cryptic take before they just go keel over?
I'd hate to see their games go away.

I think they just reached their server capacity limit.

Oh dear god, this again?!

I think they need to do what DC Universe Online does and take this place down daily and spend 30 - 45 minutes doing maintenance.

SO. I've been dealing with this problem for well over a month, now, just so that I ca get back to playing after a long hiatus of lost interest. Eventually, I ended up finding, in this forum, a link to the stadalone launcher, while simultaneously doing a complete reinstall of the game, to a different folder. Eventually, after all of that is finished downloading, I attempt to run the game via the shortcut placed on my desktop that was added during installation. Of course, I run in to that same problem.

This is where it gets good.

I then decide to run the launcher that I had downloaded seperatley, which I had placed in my Documents folder, and, lo-and-behold, a success. This is only just after having such a success, though. I downloaded Star Trek Online to a different directory (instead of program files(x86), I used program files), while leaving the actual game folder(which still has some of the STO stuff in it) in-tact. Earlier, I had attempted pinging both the patch server, and the support server, with tracert. I did not copy the either of them down(I know I should have, sorry ), though they all stopped at hop 16-19. I also attempted the nettest, and port 80 continued to repeat before hanging. This was all before I finished my download, by the way(had a lot of time to kill. With my speeds(max 80KB/s), I had tons of it), and I had done nothing else other than flushing my local DNS.

I hope that this can help you guys that are still struggling, out there. Please tell me if this works for you or not. I feel your pain, bros, and if any of you ever find any progress with my workthrough, I'd be glad to hear of it.

Forsviken out.
