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"

Unreal engine will not install

I currently have "No Engine Installed". When I launch the Unreal window for the first time I view the Library folder which has version 4.2.1 available for install. I click to install and nothing happens.

After talking to a few people I believe it is more a problem with my companies proxy server not allowing the download. Do you have any solutions for dealing with a proxy?

Hi Kmuszy13,

We do not have a solution in place for getting the launcher to function properly from behind a proxy.

Other users have worked around the issue by modifying their proxy to add an exception, as seen in the post linked below.


If this is not a possible solution for you, let us know and we may be able to work out a temporary solution to get you the binaries and sample projects.

Alternately, you may want to consider pulling the engine source code from GitHub and just working by that approach.

Please let us know.

Our IT department enabled an exception so everything is working as it should.

Thank you for your efforts

Hello Kmuszy13,

It appears that you have the same issue that is being reported by another user:


Can you confirm that the description the other user provides appears to be the same as yours? If so, we'll suggest that you remain active on the other post, and we will close this one, so that we can consolidate our efforts to troubleshooting this issue.
