I start the Launcher (tried both with or without administrator)
Left column shows 4.6.1 as default
It also shows 4.7.2, 4.6.1, 4.5.1, 4.4.3, 4.3.1, 4.2.1 in the dropdown menu.
In the top main window where you add versions in Library, it also shows each of these in blue and a greyed out 4.7.2.
I’ve seen it downloading 4.7.X on several occasions and for quite a while. I see a download icon up the top between my profile name and the ‘Add a friend’ icon, and a loading bar if I click on that I think.
I’ve clicked on buttons that say verify and repair on a number of occasions for 4.7.X.
After a little while in the launcher, 4.7 will disappear from the dropdown menu and the listed Library large icons.
Whilst in Library the ‘+ Add Versions’ is not functional, and does not respond to clicking.
4.1.2 also has a large icon in the library but is a charcoal colour and in yellow says ‘Install’.
If I remove that icon using the X top left of the icon to ‘Uninstall’ that 4.1.2 icon disappears, and then the ‘+Add versions’ text is then bright and becomes a clickable link.
If I click it, it adds the 4.1.2 back, with no mention of 4.7.X anywhere, so it is not an option to install.
If I close and reopen the launcher I go back to square one, with 4.7.2 being mentioned, but disappears after a while in the menus.
What can I do to get off this non-4.7 merry-go-round?
‘Not installed Unreal Engine 4.7.2’ top left
In library added version 4.7.2, Icon has ‘Create Project’ as the default text. I click downarrow and then I click Verify it says initializing, download icon is up top right corner with a white 1 in an orange circle. Click on it, and Under Pending tasks It shows a loading bar animating which appears to be updating/downloading 4.7.2. It finished and still says Not installed in top left menu, but the main ‘Add version’ icon, has Update, and minutes later now says repair. I click repair and I see 'initializing, and the load bar under Pending Tasks is showing it is downloading again. 10 % in the icon is now saying verifying. When that is done, the default drop down in the large icon for 4.7.2, still charcoal colour, is ‘repair’. After a number of times doing this the default drop down for 4.7.2 library says ‘Create Project’ which does nothing at all when clicked on.
Noting also the Size of all of the downloaded engine versions hasn’t appeared to change from 51.303Gb at all with all this happening.
