[Closed] What gets installed with UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe?
What exactly is installed with UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe?
I'm trying to deploy through steam (shipping build) and even though I have VS2010,2012,2013 all selected, along with Direct X, New users sometimes get an error on run that isn't resolved until they run UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe.
Is there something I'm missing from here?
I also have steamworks pointed at the root exe in the project directory to run... which I've been told should install the prereqs, but it doesn't appear to do so when running from steam.

Problem is not reproducible or outdated
The answer can get s a bit complicated because the installer takes into account a large number of windows versions which have their own little requirements. Here is a high level list of items that are installed.
It looks like the only thing you are missing from the Steam common redistributables checklist is .Net 4.0. I suspect .Net 4.0 Client Profile should be sufficient.
Do you have the "Include Prerequisites" box checked when packaging your project for Windows in the Unreal Editor? The setting can be found here: File->Package Project->Packaging Settings
i don't know what exactly inside UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe, but here is simple way figure it:
uninstall tool - this simple too write installed apps by dates, so after running UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe just check uninstall tool's installed list
another one is
process monitor - add filter for process name UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe and run it, then process monitor write you every single action like: file reading/writing with path, registry reading/writing and so on, also in process monitor you can filet only actions you like
also be aware of what user's windows is, there are tons of ugly windows installers with bad plugins, broken tweaks and so on
hope it help
