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"

Is there a way to download UE4 on a PC and install it on another?

I performed a clean install on my desktop PC and now cannot re-install UE4 because of my internet. I was able to install the launcher but whenever I try to install the engine I get code 1. I do not think this is not an issue with the launcher just my internet is quite useless and does not get along with certain servers. Have the same issue with Origin and Dropbox.

I do have an old laptop and I do go places where I can actually download things but I have not found a way to get the UE version over to my desktop. Can anyone help me here or is UE4 only for people with a high speed cable internet connection?

A good internet connection would be nice, since the Engine uses a few GB. Although as long as your internet connection doesn't die while loading the engine (and even when it should continue loading where it stopped) you should have no problems.

I don't really know if you could just copy the engine from one pc to another but you could test it. It should be stored somewhere at C:/program files/Unreal Engine/VersionNumber

You could try to just move this whole folder over to your pc, but i guess this will also take awhile.

Thank you for the response.

I have satellite internet and while the speed is okay(10mb/s) the ping/latency is really bad. All I could think is that these servers that are doing this to me are probably wanting a quick response and if not the download terminates.

Whenever I clink Install the loader spins and then the error comes up. So it does not even try to download. Sorry for not mentioning that before.

With the moving the Unreal install I can try that but all the Google search I did does not mention this working. Will still try though.

I don't know about the error codes, i guess the Staff could help you with that. Maybe it is just a problem with the launcher (:

Maybe. I just wish I could download from the browser. Works fine with other things.

maybe you could download the Source from Github.

avatar image Baldinoboy May 02 '15 at 04:31 PM

I thought the source was just for the source code access. Can you use it as a normal install?

avatar image eXi May 02 '15 at 05:07 PM

:O Did they change it? Normaly you can download the source and install it. How else would you be able to modify the source :D

Alright alright I get it ;). When I get on good internet I will try it out.
