Hi

Frosty Mod Manager can't create ModData folder in game folder despite running as administrator. It gives the error message "One ore more symbolic links could not be created, please restart tool as Administrator."

(nice typo BTW). I tried multiple things and nothing is working. Creating folder on my own works somehow but the game is not launching, only Origin.

Please, don't hi-jack a thread but instead start your own topic, Punisher.

For all those still with an issue - solution:

 

Go to you SW:BF2 folder and create in it manually 'ModData' folder and in it 'Data' folder (and any folder that the exception message string will tell you in case there are more). This should fix it.

For some reason Frosty Mod Manager didn't have permission or something was wrong with the path to create it by its own.

This actually somewhat worked for me, it created all the .cas  files in the sp folders and whatnot, however the game simply wont load for me.

 

It goes to launch as if everything is fine, but the game just shuts itself down after it tries to launch through origin. I'm at my wits end since FMM hasnt been wanting to work since May for me (was working before that). Everyone on the Frosty is refusing to help saying its a permissions issue, but I've done all I can with permissions and it still does not want to work...

Yes indeed - actually I was to fast to post that solution - I have similar issue now.

I have no clue what to do now. Sorry.
