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"

Unable to Open Epic Game Launcher - El Capitan

Very simply, I can't open the Epic Games Launcher to install any Unreal products. Apple throws the error message:

 The application "Epic Games Launcher.app" can't be opened.

There are no logs produced or other error information displayed. The only workaround I can determine is to open the package's contents run MacOS/EpicGamesLauncher-Mac-Shipping manually from terminal.

Even though this workaround exists, it's not documented anywhere. I submit this as a bug report so that you can identify the issue, as well as help any wandering Googlers get things going.

Hello bwritter,

I apologize for the delayed response.

Could you post your console logs as well as your System Specs?

Mac: Go to the Apple menu and click ‘About This Mac’.
