create a shortcut to sweaw.exe
place the data folder in the mods folder. Create a folder called CIS and place data in there.
Now in the shortcut, open the properties and add to the path, MODPATH=Mods\CIS
Make sure the " edn before you put the modpath in. This should get it to work.

but u said the data folder goes into the mods folder

basicly put XML in Data, Data in CIS, and CIS in Mods
also to add the desktop icon create a shortcut of the SWEAW.exe go to the shotcut on the desktop and right click, go into properties go to the tab shortcut
look at taget and change it to this: "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War\GameData\sweaw.exe" MODPATH=Mods/CIS (with the quotes)
and thats it done now click ok and now you can rename your desktop item to what ever you want.
hope that helped

oh, and one of the tmes i tried to run it, it said "the information was successfully collected and stored to the file: "C:\AnalysisLog.sr0"
does this have to do with the problem of launching the mod?

Try putting the thumbs.dll in the CIS folder. Don't make the shortcut to the .bat folder. Other then that, I'm not sure. It works fine for me.
