Possible to copy engine from one machine to another?
Platform: Mac Engine 4.4.1
We have relatively slow internet and the 2GB download takes a long time. I copied the engine from shared/UnrealEngine/4.4 and put it on a shared drive. Another subscriber then copied the engine from the shared drive to shared/UnrealEngine/4.4
However when I launch the installer it still wants to download the engine again. We've started the download now but is it possible to simply copy the engine between machines without the install?

Currently the Launcher won't automatically detect a copied install of the engine, but you can get it to do so with a little trick. You need to create an empty file named $movedMarker, so that you end up with
If you have the engine in the right place, with that file there, then when you click the download button for 4.4, it will cause the Launcher to start right off with the "Verifying" stage, and it would only download something if it found a file that was corrupt or missing.
Let me know how you get on :)
