Which version of EaW do you have (Steam, Gold, Retail)? How did you set it to launch? It launching the base game would imply you don't have the folder in the right place, or you set the launch settings incorrectly.

What's the full path to get to your Imperial Civil War's Data folder? And can you paste what you have in your launch options?

As the manual says
Quote
Copy and paste the extracted Imperial_Civil_War folder into the Mods folder.  E.g.:
...\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\Mods\Imperial_Civil_War\

Instead of the Imperial_Civil_War folder, you've put a folder named ICW21 in there. You likely used "extract to" and then didn't move the actual Imperial_Civil_War folder.

...corruption\Mods\Imperial_Civil_War\

If your path currently goes

...corruption\Mods\Imperial_Civil_War\Data

You need to rename the ICW21 folder to Imperial_Civil_War (it's currently launching the base game because you're telling it to look for a folder named Imperial_Civil_War in the launch options when no such folder exists)

If your path currently goes:
...corruption\Mods\ICW21\Imperial_Civil_War\Data

You need to cut the Imperial_Civil_War folder out and paste it into the Mods folder directly.
