Sorry to short-circuit your guide, but the installer linked in my signature works fine. If the link ever disappears, I will reupload it to cloud storage.

Well, after 7 hrs I'm back in game; uninstalled the spyware crap Arc and installed STO through Steam.
Thx for tips and good luck to future ARC resisters.

Well I've installed STO with Arc a few months ago (didn't had a clue what Arc was) but I had the same issues with LotRO so leave Arc there and just find your STO launcher icon:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Star Trek Online\Perfect World Entertainment\Star Trek Online_en.exe

It starts the Launcher no problem, bypassing Arc. Make sure you "run as administrator" as it sometimes bugs otherwise but I never had any problems.

Arc just sits there, desperately waiting to be used... but that won't happen again!
Works for me!
Cheers!

Had to reinstall, would not from my old disk, and ended up with Arc.
Thank you for this, problem solved, works like a charm!

Just got a new gaming rig, networked it up with my existing set-up, copied the whole sto folder over (about 13g/20 mins). Made a shortcut for the launcher and been playing problem/ARC free.

My answer to Arc is very simple. Steam.

And Steam even offers something that is impossible to get any other way: the Steamrunner Escorts. You can't buy them from ZEN, not from Arc, just from Steam.
Not knowing something isn't a sign of stupidity, not asking is.

Sorry to ask (another) stupid question, but what is this "Steam" thing I keep reading about?

Steam is launcher program similar to ARC, it's tied into an online store, forums, and a whole bunch of other stuff. It's been around for years and there are probably thousands of games available through it, so its a bit more trusted then this new ARC program.

Personally, I haven't dealt with ARC yet, so I don't really have an opinion one way or the other on it.

well i dont see the point of even going trough all this a single copy paste from the arc dir and then just uninstalling arc will work just fine ... or just copy sto's shortcut on the desktop and forget that arc even exist

Or bypass the use of Arc altogether and use the standalone installer in my sig.
