I've had this problem for 2 weeks now..
The STO launcher opens in the taskbar but nothing appears on screen.. i click the taskbar icon like crazy but it's futile.
So after i started reading some forum posts from people with similar problems i found out i could use the GameClient.exe in the Live folder to get in.. So i tried this and it got stuck at "connecting to the account server..."
After reading some more postst i tried turning off the firewall and antivirus but it didn't do any good.
If anyone knows a solution to this issue please post your insight :>
