Can't install 4.10, insufficient space
I searched this place and the forums briefly but I could not find any post about this issue.
Like many others I have a PC with a small SSD system disk (C:) and a secondary storage disk (D:). I have very little space available on C: so I run my UE4 projects from D:. The launcher is installed on D: and I can install engine versions 4.9 and older just fine, they install to the launcher install folder on D:. When I try to install 4.10.2 however there is a new little popup window that lets you check what you wish to include in the install. This popup window also calculates available space. For some reason it calculates space available on C:, which is insufficient for me to download and install. Is there a solution to this? 4.11 Preview has the same problem. I am using Windows 10.

You can build the engine from source. That will solve your issues! It's not really too hard. I build my engine on a network drive on a RAID array actually. It works fine.
Download the files from github. (You will need to be granted access to the repository I think. It used to be this way. I'm not sure if it still is.) https://www.unrealengine.com/ue4-on-github https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/GettingStarted/DownloadingUnrealEngine/
I just download it as a zip from github. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/GettingStarted/DownloadingUnrealEngine/DownloadZip/index.html
Once you finish that step, then you need to build from source. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/BuildingUnrealEngine/index.html
Also, if you are downloading 4.10 or newer, make sure you have Visual Studio 2015. The instructions haven't been updated. 4.9 or older uses VS 2013.
