Running launcher with a copy of unrealengine folder makes you download everything all over again
So at work i have a fiber 50Mb connection however at home i have a T1, and download 8+Gigs is a pain and time consuming. Basically i cant do anything else on the net then if i wnat this to complete as soon as possible.
Yesterday I downloaded everything at my office the copied the whole UE folder to my external Drive i take back and fourth home with me to then so i wouldn't have to then re-download all of what i did at work.
Now i do this alot with other programs I'll install the launcher, load the launcher up that way the launcher create whatver reg entrie sit needs and place sthe file structure needed. I then close the launcher and copy and past over the Unreal Engine folder over what I just installed with the launcher to save time downloading everything again and bam done.
However Every time i load the launcher up it wants to re-download the whole entire program and doens't see I have any of the free content i've downloaded from the market place.
I've even tried putting the folder I've copied in 1st before installing and same thing.
is this a bug or intended or any planes to allow one to do this???
