Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe Edition

What is Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe Edition?

This software utilizes the Impulse digital distribution platform. Impulse provides users the ability to purchase and download software that are tied to an account on GameStop's servers, and can be downloaded from anywhere that allows the use of the Impulse client. Impulse allows users to install, update (when desired) and uninstall the software tied to a user's account. Users who purchase Impulse-supported games at retail stores can download the client and install previously purchased software on their computers without the original disc after registration of the game.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is masseffect2launcher.exe. The software installer includes 39 files. The program is built using the Nokia Qt cross-platforms native C++ framework.
