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 not find source install or projects

I've installed the binary version of the launcher on a new PC and copied over the VaultCache from the old one. I've also built the github source release version (currently 4.17.1). But the Launcher can not see the source install or any source based projects.

For example if I want to add assets to a source based project from the VaultCache in the launcher. It does not list any projects, even if I tick show all. Only binary based projects are listed.

I have run UnrealVersionSelector-Win64-Shipping.exe in source install and it says the directory was successfully registered but nothing happens the launcher still can not see.
