4.6.1 Failing to Launch
I have re-installed, deleted all known folders in ProgramData and AppData/Local, and I still cannot launch 4.6.1. There was an issue with the older launcher where if I had 4.6.1 installed, I couldn't click on Library without the launcher crashing, but deleting the Manifest for it solved that. The new launcher doesn't crash but every time I try to launch the engine (with or without a project) it crashes.

Figured out the solution finally, there's old stuff left by the previous launcher that was in the folders %userprofile%/AppData/Local and C:\ProgramData. After deleting every Unreal related folder, then uninstalling/reinstalling the launcher and engine, everything is working again.
