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"

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.

Best regards.

Hey DanielRS,

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.

Best,

Ben Halliday

Oh well, lets start the download then. Thanks for your response.

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:-
