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"

Detect installation path of Epic Launcher in Windows 8


I'm doing some bootstrap automation of my project and I need to detect UnrealVersionSelector in order to generate VS solution files from .uproject. I looked at windows registry, c:\ProgramData\Epic, some other places in c:\Users\User..., and I didn't find any config files or other pointers to my Epic Launcher folder.

UE4 installation info can be found in c:\ProgramData\Epic\, but not launcher paths. (Yep, I have custom installation path of Epic Launcher. Not default c:\Program Files( x86)...)

So, the question is where I can found a path to Epic Games Launcher to use its files?

Also I've posted a question on forums, so here's the link: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?65609-Detect-installation-path-of-Epic-Launcher-in-Windows-8

Use envriament varables insted, not sure if unreal use it, but if not.... you can set it yourself :)


also UnrealVersionSelector is associated with uproject files so if you want you can use that for more automatic solution

If I set it myself it is not automation, isn't it?
