i also had the impression the window was below the screen. very very odd ...

thank you everywone for the workaround.

# 146 Can you fix ????????
08-30-2013, 07:50 AM
Well I can get my Launch window up but when I try to enter the game it always want to verify the files and after that when I launch my game it ALWAYS crashed mid load and I've already tried everything including erasing my files and using my hard disk and it still crashes mid load after it verifies the files I would like to know why I can access tribble just fine and Champs just fine, But not my STO account?

create a desktop shortcut

right click this shortcut

look around for a 'maximise' drop box and tick it

>>>Click apply/OK

Workaround no longer works. My younger brother can't run the launcher, only the game itself. This means that by next Thursday, he will be incapable of playing STO indefinitely.
Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.
And I don't pretend to understand them.

After starting, icon in taskbar was there but there was no window where u can input username and password to start playing.

1. Start STO
2. start Task manager
3. Applications tab
4. Right click on Star trek online and press Minimize
5. Right click again and press Maximize
(Now launcher is there but Maximized over everything)
6. Escape to close launcher
7. Start STO and there is your launcher again, visible and in normal size.

Hope it helps

((EDIT from BranFlakes: This workaround can be used until a permanent solution is provided. Thanks! -Brandon))

problem solved, u are a genius my friend!
