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"

You should log in as an administrator or you should be in the administrator group. For more: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/280582/unreal-engine-wont-download.html

for me it was because the launcher installed itself to the 32 bit program files folder and the engine was pointing to the 64 bit program file location during install. changing the install path for the engine to 32bit program files worked for me. no need for admin login and working as expected

It is weird and nonsense answer because of Windows 7 above honors administrator rights by default. I think it also applies to Windows Vista because I have never used it. Just google! You need administrator rights when you install an app, create and edit file or folder to any Program Files in C:\ drive or Windows Installation drive. Windows 64 bit has both Program Files and Program Files (x86). Windows 32 bit has only Program Files. You only change the installation path to Program Files (x86) for Windows 64 bit? You should do more than that and any Program Files in C:\ drive or Windows installation drive won't be a problem so why do you need to change your installation folder to Program Files (x86) for Windows 64 bit? Windows XP ignores the administrator rights so you can install in any Program Files in C:\ drive or Windows installation drive. Furthermore, why do you need to change your installation folder to Program Files (x86) for Windows 64 bit?


I restate my answer that is log in as administrator. Administrator launcher or Run as administrator doesn't work because there is a bug in Unreal Engine itself. It also applies to Unreal Engine 4.21.

I can confirm. As weird as it is, changing to the "Program Files (x86)" directory works fine.

I just had this problem and for me it was because I had insufficient disk space to install all the selected options. So on the same window where it shows you the install path and asks for confirmation, you can choose Options and uncheck all options you do not need for your installation in order to reduce installation size. Either that, or clear some disk space another way.

Hope it helps.
