[Closed] Epic Games Launcher crashes
I have been digging around for an answer and nothing has yielded a result. After multiple clean re-installs the problem persists. However, I have noticed that in the most recent log (before a complete re-install), it just suddenly stops mid way. Also my most recent log only recorded one line "[0708/092308:ERROR:child_process_launcher.cc(479)] Failed to launch child process"
The crashes began after I provided administrator rights after updating the launcher (it requested admin privileges to update outdated shortcuts), now after each re-install, it allows me to sing in, it opens the main window, if I click the Unreal Engine tab it crashes, or even after a while it just closes down. After that, the launcher only displays the logging in window with the "please wait" message and instantly crashes. No logs. Windows reports it just as a "stopped working" event.
I was planning on starting a new project, but am I'm unable of even downloading the editor.
