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"

Error Code R-1638

I'm trying to get 4.10 running on my machine using just the Launcher. But I keep getting and error saying Installation Failed and the Error Code R-1638.

My Windows 10 is up to date and I have tried Uninstalling the VS2015 Redist as suggested on other threads. But I keep getting the same error over and over again.

Product Version: Epic Games Launcher

Hi, Sorry about the delayed response.... I managed to get it working by simply re-downloading the whole installer.
