Packaging Game and Sending to Friend
The game I am working on is getting to a playable state. I wanted to package the game and share it with a few friends to get their input. I packaged the game using the distribution setting and then zipped the whole folder added it to dropbox.
When my brother download the zipped file and tried the play the game he got the error
Anyone know how to successfully share the game with some friends. The don't have Unreal Engine installed or Visual Studios. Hope that's not a problem.

How are they running the game exactly?
When you package the game, you should end up with an executable in your packaged folder with the path ProjectName\WinXX\ProjectName.exe
Running this should load the game without issue. If they have any issues with any missing DLLs, send them the setup file included in your engine at \Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us
