That usually means you have things in the wrong palce. What folder is your .bat file in?

First the .bat was in E:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\Games\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold, where the normal bat files of EAW are. Tried to put the .bat into the folder where TR is located ( E:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\Games\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX\Mods), but both attempts didnt work.  Even tried deleting anything, extracting it new and put everything in place like in the instructions, but whatever i do, doesnt work.

Both of those are the incorrect palces to put it. While the normal bat files of EaW are in that folder, that's for the base game, not for the Forces of Corruption Expansion. You want to put the bat file in
 C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\Games\Star Wars - Empire At War Gold\EAWX
with the Forces of Corruption executable.

the Missing text is because the mod is in English and your game likely is not. Go into the mod's Data\Text folder and rename MasterTextFile_English to MasterTextFile_YourLanguage
