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"

Unreal Engine Not Launching

Hey there. I have just gotten my License for UE4 through my Uni. I downloaded the Epic Games Launcher, installed it and then started the download for UE4 4.7.0. Once it was finished, I clicked launch but nothing happened. I have tried verifying the install in the Library tab. I have tried moving the install from my external drive to my internal HDD. I thought I would ask here before a full UE4 re-install (to avoid that large download).

Basically neither the "launch" button or the "Create Project" button seem to do anything when I click on them in the Epic Games Launcher. No error code or visual signs of the Engine launching.

Specs: Windows 7, 64 bit 8gb RAM Radeon HD6950 2gb Intel i7 2600k Unlocked @ 4.0ghz

Product Version: Not Selected

@ChessBoard64 As I am having similar issues, it will be helpful if you could tell me what was the issue you had with visual studio, how it affected unreal engine and how did you get it fixed. Thanks!

Hi PantherNZ,

We do not recommend installing the editor onto an external drive or moving the files after install. This will generally have slow performance due to transfer rates or not launch at all. You can try bypassing the Launcher altogether by opening the UE4Editor.exe directly. Look for it in this folder:

:\Program Files\Unreal Engine\4.7\Engine\Binaries\Win64

If it still doesn't launch, try re-installing on your internal drive. Post back here to let us know if it works or not.

Thanks,

TJ
