Unreal Tournament Editor 4.7.3 Installation Failed A file corruption occurred
Today I tried to update the Unreal Tournament Editor to version 4.7.3 and unfortunately my connection dropped in the middle of the update. I am now unable to complete the installation of the editor. I receive the error: "Installation Failed. A file corruption has occurred. Please try again." When I try a second time, I receive the same error. The launcher will show progress up to approximately 40% and jump between "initializing" and "resume" status until ultimately the error pops up again.
I have tried uninstalling the editor and reinstalling it via the launcher but I end up with the same error. I have tried uninstalling the Epic Games Launcher and doing a full reinstall from scratch but keep coming back to the same error. (Antivirus was disabled and I was running the launcher as administrator the whole time.) I am running windows 7 64 bit and I have all of the epic studios content (editor, engine, unreal tournament 4) installed to E:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games
The launcher log file shows the following "corruption" lines. [2015.04.02-01.39.40:021][ 0]BuildPatchServices: Build Stat: FailureReason: EBuildPatchInstallError::FileConstructionFail Could not create new file UnrealTournament/Content/RestrictedAssets/Environments/Liandri/Meshes/Optimizations/SM_Liandri_DoorA_Floor_Trim02_Strait_Half_OutdoorOPTIMIZED.uasset [2015.04.02-01.39.40:021][ 0]BuildPatchServices: Build Stat: FailureReasonText: A file corruption has occurred. Please try again.
I honestly don't know if this is the cause of the issue, but it's the only thing in the launcher log that makes sense to me. I should note that I am not a guru when it comes to log files. =P
Update: I tried navigating to the mesh in question by going to: "E:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\UnrealTournamentEditor\PatchStaging\UnrealTournamentEditorLive-Windows\Install\UnrealTournament\Content\Optimizations" and looking for the mesh but it's not in there.
I tried deleting the optimizations folder and then resuming, but still getting the same error. A fresh debug log shows the same offending mesh.
Edit 2: I should also let you know that I have tried navigating to: "E:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\UnrealTournamentEditor\PatchStaging" and deleting the folder: "UnrealTournamentEditorLive-Windows" and then resuming the installation, and it still fails.
No there were no additial files of any type in the vault cache folder. However, I have resolved the issue by using a hammer. I fully uninstalled, ran cc cleaner, then reinstalled to my OS drive fresh. I then just moved my backedup maps into the content directory and all is well.
However, I am still curious as to what could be learned from the last log file I provided. It seems that one mesh file was still culprit.
Thanks for your efforts, much appreciated!
