Can't download launcher. Access for country is blocked.
On attempt to load Unreal installer(https://download.epicgames.com/Builds/UnrealEngineLauncher/Installers/EpicGamesLauncherInstaller-2.0.1-2467307.msi) I see the webpage :
ERROR The request could not be satisfied. The Amazon CloudFront distribution is configured to block access from your country. Generated by cloudfront (CloudFront) Request ID: mVcV7WlNJ8PsP4l6NVE2_7eThRxo6mS9xhg_hjwGEIfzixooCQ_fKA==
Country: Belarus. Well, that is clear enough. But why?! Is that some setup done by Amazon, or Epic Games? So what I suppose to with that? I manage to get the installer but I guess I'm getting more issues simply because the launcher connects to Amazon hosts during it's work.
We are blocking IP addresses from certain countries to comply with US law. We are however currently investigating whether we are blocking too aggressively / too many people.
We will post back as soon as we have an update on this.
