Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

msi Installer not working on WIN 8.1, stops at directX


I have this error when installing the unreal engine, at the point of directx. It does a full rollback afterwards, so there are no files. I have win 8.1 and a msi gt72 dominator with direct x11. I searched for this, but couldn't find a solution here.

Thanks in advance!

Hey pyrocat,

You hardware should work no problem with UE4 so that is not the issue.

Have you already downloaded/installed the required DirectX 2010 Redistibutable package? If not install that and then try to install UE4 again.

Hope that helps!
