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"

Can you check the Portal sub folder to see if you have an EpicGamesLauncher.exe there?

nop, not in there, in portal folder, there is only a services folder which as Private/Public folder and PortalServices.Build.cs.

no idea why or how it got delete though.

can you upload a launcher exe so i can just place it there?

I think you are checking the incorrect folder so let me see if I can clear things up:

If you installed to the default folder, launcher executables live in these two folders:

 C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64
 C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Launcher\Portal\Binaries\Win64

Can you tell me the contents of those two folders?

i check every folder and done search on the epic folder but found nothing. i fixed the problem by reinstalling. seems like i dont have to download again because the installation folder is still somewhere on my pc
