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"

Sorry to hear that you have hit an issue. To diagnose the problem we'll need your installer log. You can do the following to generate one:

  • Place the msi on the root of C drive

  • WindowsKey+R and enter:

  • msiexec /i C:\EpicGamesLauncher.msi /L*V C:\EpicGamesLauncher.txt

  • Then run the installer until you hit the error. Dismiss the error and close out of the installer.

Once you have the log generated, zip it up and attach it to the thread and we should be able to provide info on how to get past the issue.

Looks like DirectX is having an issue installing on your system. We include the DirectX installer in the launcher installer but it is not something we author ourselves so I can not easily pinpoint why it is failing. I do have a few workarounds that should get you past the issue.

  1. Follow the instructions outlined here: LINK

  2. That should get you to to a point where you can patch the launcher. Let the patch complete.

  3. You may encounter another issue once the patcher tries to install prerequisites. If you do, follow the instructions here: LINK
