Not working for me sadly, it launches the launcher like it should then closes down once you login.

Does the title in steam require the quotation marks as well?
No, the quotes are not required, i will edit the main post. The icon and name are optional. It's the Target and StartIn fields that are required.

It runs the script, shows I'm in the game via steam. However it does not run the launcher. So now it says I'm playing the game but I'm not and I cannot get out of the game. I'm not sure how to close out of the script.

For those having issues, I would double check that all the paths are correct, check that C:/windows exists, check where your bioware install is located and change accordingly.

Non 64bit systems WILL have different paths. Honestly though valve or bioware should fix this. It worked fine in beta.

But is it a good idea not to run as Admin (from Bioware's perspective, not reality). They probably do so because of careless coding issues. It might launch and play fine up until some weird things start to happen because of permission failures. Sort of a shotgun approach to making it work right.

Runs the script, launcher starts, I sign in and the game loads, but I can't access the overlay D:

So close!

Edit: Also no longer classed as being in game on Steam D:
Neutral Auction House, trainers and bank all on Nar Shaddaa, Lower Promenade. Start trading there already!
