I know that Star Trek Online can be downloaded for free. But I'm wondering if it's still possible to install Star Trek Online from the DVD, or if the game has changed so much since its release that the DVD no longer works. I've read one post on the STO forums that suggests that the DVD may no longer work:
After trying everything listed in earlier posts to try to upgrade every driver on my PC, I thought I'd try to uninstall then re-install the game. Unfortunately, this was a big mistake, as my Collector's Edition DVD version of the game software was so out of date that the software would not update (I'm sure that this is due to the links to the update server were changed when PerfectWorld purchased Cryptic - You need to add a re-direct for folks trying to install from original software disks). As mentioned earlier, the ARC software also has been hosed since the launch of Delta Rising so I was totally out of luck.
Is the DVD now completely useless or is this just a random bug that this person experienced?
