What does not
During the install you will encounter many, many errors...
First, you need to put the gdiplus.dll in the system32 directory
1) Error getting VersionNT (just click OK and continue)
2) Couldn't grant full access to: C:\ProgramData\Electronic Arts\EA Link\cache (click ok many times)
3) At the end you will get an unhandled exception:
Error Number: 0x80040703
Description: Failed to find DLL function: Advapi32.SaferCreateLevel
Setup will not terminate.
At this point, EA link is installed, although I'm not sure if its fully installed, but you can now start it up. Run Core.exe from the program files dir.
EA Link starts up, but produces many errors and finally crashes.
What was not tested
Could not get the EA Link utility successfully installed. Was able to start it up but it crashes before you can login.
If only EA link would work, then I could play BF 2142!
