Yes, bypassing downloader. Downloader is the file called voyagecentury.exe.
The game is actually called Core.exe
Downloader will automatically check the client version. If its correct it gives you an option to start the game, if not, it will automatically update the game to latest version. If you click the option Start, the downloader will automatically run the Core.exe.
If Core.exe detects its being run by voyagecentury.exe, the game will successfully start. On other hand if it detects its being run by another program, it will create an error message. The same one you got.
Now, obviously, the Core.exe can't recognize its being run by voyagecentury.exe. There might be many different reasons. Could be a virus. There's a worm called Brontok, I had many problems with it. It changes the registry settings so every program is being run trough it. Are you sure you don't have any viruses on your system?
There could also be a problem with some monitoring software like antivirus, firewall etc.
Could you gives more information about your system? What OS you use, what antivirus software you use, do you have any unusual problems? Anything that could help.
