Fix Epic Games Launcher for UE4

I have no idea why this worked and what the problem was, but for anyone out there using UE4 (Unreal engine 4) who suddenly cant get it to connect to the internet add this in the target path area of the “Epic Games Launcher”
Found this in the internet and it worked a treat.

Gotta love UE4. Its Unreal! and so fun and easy for designers.



So to fix the problem

Just add


to the launcher alias

“C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64\EpicGamesLauncer.exe”

epic launcher


add  -http=wininet
“C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64\EpicGamesLauncer.exe -http=wininet”

sorry to everyone else to whom this means nothing but it was really bugging me and might help other people.


Will be back to normal after that. Download all the massive updates (and there seem to be a lot)

Hopefully the Zelda vbimeo video will link, if not check it out. I didnt make it but it shows of UE4 nicely
