How to transfer UE4 from one computer to another?
I downloaded it on my laptop but now I need to move it to my Desktop PC, how can I do that? I tried moving the "4.0" folder in the installation path but it didn't work, it always tries to download the whole engine in the Desktop PC.
The Launcher is the only way to install the engine currently, and it does require internet access. You can copy the .msi file to your desktop, but you will need to download the rest from there.

There are manifest files that the launcher uses to recognise things that are installed.
If you install the launcher to the same directory on your new machine as was on your old one you can also copy accross the relevant folders. See my answer on this thread for more details:-
