I installed that new "platform update for Windows 7" (KB2670838) on my Windows 7 x64 Service Pack 1 system last night, and Star Trek Online started crashing on launch. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
Same problem here as that was the only thing that I did change on my system. Today, after starting the computer, the launcher crashes with a Cryptic Error immediately after pressing the 'Engage' button. I did try patching, tried forcing a check - to no avail.
The weird thing being: sometimes, I was able to log in. Got to character selection once, selected a character... - and made the mistake of going back to windows to load TS3 to speak to my fleetmates. Which did reward me with a black screen and the STO mouse pointer when going back to STO - and no change to that after several minutes.
Another fleetmate has the same problem and is currently downloading STO again to try a fresh reinstall.

I fixed it !!! I had to roll back my computer to before the windows 7 update. So for me I had to do a system restore to 2/24/2013. That was when I updated my Java. Once I did the restore STO launched and I am playing it now. Hope this helps
