So is my EADM supposed to just be a white box in the middle with no text or buttons or anything? I kind of expected to see something... like some columns or something, and I just want to make sure this thing is working right when the CC gets released

Mine looked like that for all of 1 min, then I got rid of it as I couldn't start SCC with the dang thing running in the Background all the time looking for updates that weren't there.

SCC kept getting knocked to the desktop over and over by the EADM.
I came to the reasoning that the EADM is a pile of [ BLEEP ] so I removed it forcibly off my PC.
Everything works now.

Mine looks like that aswell. According to EA the CC should be visible but not downloadable, according to people here it shouldn't be visible untill it releases and taking EA's credibility so far into consideration, I would go with what people say here.

Called my local GameStop where I pre-paid for it.

They told me it comes out in September.   :-\

I explained the Demo CC is today or tomorrow...

They said they don't know and don't have it.

Kid sounded like he was twelve and I threatened to punch him and his Mom in the face.

*sigh*

It is hard since I work in retail that offers GOOD customer service...I am overly harsh on the remaining 99% of the retail world.  :D

I talked to another less stupid Gamestop, and they said they are expecting it Wednesday between 11am and 1pm.
But I still fear it is an unpatched and unpatchable version.

The full version should be okay, as long as the EADM thing doesn't screw it up like it did the Trial version today.

All my issues didn't come from the SCC at all, guess that right there shows the difference between Maxis and EA, EA made the EADM themselves, so you gotta wonder about that.

Oh it does, when you said a white box I thought you meant a complete white box. Also, it doesn't work like Steam so check your email regularly because when they release the full CC it will be an email with the link, then it will start downloading on the EADM.
