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"

where does game launcher store what version of engine is installed?

I am installing unreal engine on several PCs in my school. unreal constantly keeps upgrading the version but i need to keep things standardized on one version. If our students start a class and they download the software at home, they only get the option to download the latest version. i tried copying the folder from a PC at school to the same location on a home PC but the launcher doesn't recognize its there.

how can i take a version from out school ex 4.12.1 and install it on students PCs at home?

Product Version: UE 4.12

Hi ggarza,

Unfortunately when installing the binary Engine via the Launcher, it will always install the latest hotfix for the version you are installing. So, if you install 4.12, you will have 4.12.5 installed. There is no way to install a specific hotfix version, such as 4.12.1, when you install the Engine via the Launcher. The only way to get a specific hotfix version would be to use the tag for that hotfix on GitHub to download the source code, and then build the Engine. This probably would not be ideal for your needs.

If you do not plan on updating the Engine at all, it may be helpful to install the latest hotfix for the previous Engine version. Currently that would provide you with 4.11.2. It is quite unlikely that we will be releasing any further hotfixes for 4.11, so there should be no more updates for that version. Students would then be able to install 4.11 at home from the Launcher and have the same hotfix as the installations on the school systems.
