If that's not it, I would need to see the Launcher.log

I am the guy with the error from the op. Interesting as to have seen that in the Gamersfirst installation, Windows vista service pack 1 was marked red as something that would not be compatible with the game. I ignored it but its the only clue i have come by.. and while through constant digging through other posts on the subject, I've noticed that everyone who has the error in general is Windows 7 service pack 1. The setup giving me that error and the other people just so happen to have windows 7 sp1 as well leads to the conclusion as this game is not compatible with windows 7 sp1 or atleast some update they released. I know this error hasn'
t happened to everyone with it but some update must be the cause, maybe not of the game but from the windows developer.
Btw - after investigating the windows 7 updates, they just announced recently that they will not be making a service pack 2 for windows 7 because they have high hopes for windows 8 and want everyone to upgrade. (In my own opinion, windows 8 looks dumb.)
Edit - Note that I am currently using steam version of APB and the apbcorner.com for manual patching doesn't work.

I am personally running and developing the game on Windows 7 SP1, so it not being supported that strikes me as kind of an odd statement. Could you look at the Windows Event Viewer to see if that says anything more detailed? Also, can you double-check that the following files exist in C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727:
(There's probably more that are needed, but I'm at home now and don't have the exact details)
Also, we don't support the manual patcher from that web-site either, just the original launcher.

I'm having this problem too. The launcher appears to be dead and won't update/activate the start button.
