Right; If it isn't the constant connection issues it's some other god damn problem.
OK, so after two or more months of frustrating server issues, I now load up my game launcher and bang. CRASH!! WTF! is going on at the office? To busy building new ships to flog, rather than fix these WIDESPREAD issues regarding the ability of many players, to actually play the game. No play, No money!! Saves?
OK Rant over. What the h$ll is this new issue I'm having? I re-installed the game and it worked for a whole 12 hours after i de-selected fast launch: Now today I load this new patch and get hit with this garbage ERROR 36!?
I'd love some help here before I eat my dogs in a blind rage... I aint no IT expert, so do me and many others a favour and at the very least respond to the problems on this forum, and also quit the blaming of the players for the problems.
So tell me ==== ERRROR 36: A file was was locked that could not be open? wtf does that mean to normal people without a degree in computer science? I really would like to play this game withought having to re-install it every half a day.

It means that some other program (such as a Anti-Virus utility) is using the file, and won't let anyone else use it until it finishes...
There is a download you can get ( http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=270847) download it to downloads. Its a .rar so you'll need a program to open it (I recomend Winzip which you can get an 'evaluation version' for.) In your downloads make a new folder called star trek online and extract the .rar to there. Open the folder inside is another 2 folders 1 called localdata and another called Star Trek Online and then a .dll called dbghelp.dll. Theres a text file called pcl (DO NOT EDIT or the game won't work). [b]IGNORE ALL OF THESE.[b] The other 2 is 2 application 1 is called cryptic error and then the other is called star trek online, double click this and the launcher updater should appear and then the launcher will open. It should then take 3-5 hours to launch and then your playing the game (at last).
