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"

Launcher can't install engine

Hi all, I got a problem with my launcher. A while back I had to reinstall my windows. After having my windows reinstalled, I reinstall all my other programs including the UE4. But after installing the launcher It was said that I had no engines installed. In the library tab in the engine slot at first there was the install button for the 4.2.1. I pressed install and it said please wait for a while but then change into the 4.1.1 install button. no download progress for the 4.2.1 was shown. I pressed the install button for 4.1.1 and again like the 4.2.1, it said please wait for a while then change into the 4.0.2. Again I tried pressing that button and then no engine installers where available. Just to clarify things, no error message was shown. I'd really like an answer to this and have an engine installed soon. Thanks

A few additional questions:

  • Was the UE4 Launcher working properly before you reinstalled Windows?

  • Are you behind a network proxy?

We are behind a company proxy and can't install it either (launcher installs fine though; clicking on any version of the engine yields nothing). I'm with Kmuszy13 from this thread: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/60024/unreal-engine-will-not-install.html

Thanks for the replies, the problem kinda fixed itself. I re-downloaded the launcher installer and re-installed using the newly downloaded one and now it all works fine. Don't know what was wrong before but if it helps for future reference, here's the log. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20531141/UnrealEngineLauncher-backup-2014.06.23-13.00.15.log

Thanks again
