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"

Virus detected Engine 4.6.1 download

I am new to UE4 and have version 4.7.0 of the engine installed no problems. Tonight I downloaded 4.6.1 so that I can try out UT4, the installation failed saying "a file access error occurred. Please check your running processes" and then my anti virus program came up saying C:\Program files\Epic Games\Launcher\PatchStagin\UE_4.6Production-Windows\Install\Engine\Extra\Android\tadp-2.0r8-windows.exe has been detected as infected. Bitdefender could not clean this item. Your computer is not virus-free. Virus name:gen:Varient.graftor.143365

I turned off Bitdefender and was able to complete the install, can anyone shed any light as to whether this is a genuine virus or just an anomaly?

Thanks Browndog

Hey Browndog,

I can safely tell you that UE4 is not a virus, and contains no malware. It's not unusual for antivirus software to have 'false positives' where it identifies legitimate software as malware.
