Epic Games Launcher Can't Find My UE4 Installation
I installed UE4 on a external drive so I could use it on another machine, but when I launch Epic Games Launcher it can't find the engine installation and instead prompts me to download and install it. If I try to redirect it to the directory where it was installed it says "Directory must be empty."
Does anyone know how to edit config files for EGL so it finds the engine or if I can make EGL find UE4 or something?

I fixed it by doing the following:
Copy UE_4.14 to the desktop.
Begin a download and then quit EGL as soon as the download speed shows up.
Delete the in progress download from Program Files/Epic Games and replace it with the full version.
Restart EGL and resume download, if it's done right it'll list it as installing instead of downloading.

my EpicGamesLauncher is in C: and most of my projects are in D: at first the launcher hadn't identified most of my projects, but it found them when i tried to open it directly, you can open your engine without the epic games launcher, try to run the engine while the launcher is opened, it may identify it the same way it did to my projects, in case you don't know where is the ".exe" from the editor try this:
