I know there are several posts about launcher installation errors with this error code already, but I've tried the various solutions supplied in those threads to no avail. I've tried manually installing directx and then disabling that portion of the installer but I still get the same error when trying to run the launcher. I've also tried replacing the d3dcompiler_43.dll in my system folder. I've used CCcleaner to tidy up the registry and have made sure windows and my nvidia drivers are up to date but still get the same error.
The log says that installation completed successfully, but the installer window closes very abruptly after the directx installation (or around that point when dx installation is disabled). The installer doesn't give me any final options and doesn't create any start menu links, though it does create a desktop shortcut which of course doesn't work.
Attached is my dxdiag.txt and here is a link to my installer log (because it was too big to attach here): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6754798/EpicGamesInstallerLog.txt
My system specs are:
Windows 8.1 Pro Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU 24576MB RAM Nvidia GTX780

If you are seeing this error then the launcher install completed. This means the installer logs won't be helpful in this case. Usually we need logs from a tool called Dependency Walker to track down the root cause of the problem. You can read more about the process of getting a DW log here(includes some tips on what to look for in your log): https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/12975/unreal-engine-wont-launch-error-code-0xc000007b.html
If you get stuck, you can post your log and we'll try to help.
