Do you have the 4.11 preview through the Launcher installed? If so you will need to uninstall the prerequisites and then install 4.10. Can you also post the full error message when trying to open the editor? Are you able to install/run 4.9 or does the same issue occur?
Well, the error message did not give any information at, it crashes at 0% of the loading, it is hard for me to provide a screenshot now, but it gave no information about the error.
The issue from the code is that it was not able to identify the GPU.
If I run UE4 using the integrated intel GPU, the engines runs fine.
I was able to make the engine run by disabling my integrated GPU, and only then the engine was able to recognize the nvidia gpu. It is a temporarily fix, and I cannot keep using just the dedicated GPU, it kills my battery life.
I uninstalled multiple engine version and installed new one, and they did not work, not 4.10.2 not 4.11 and not 4.9, even though 4.9 used to work. Only 4.10 was installed from both the marketplace and github, all other where installed using the marketplace.
I updated all my drivers, performed clean installation nothing worked.
My guess is that something on my computer made the detect GPU function not work properly, which is the first thing the engine try to run when it starts
Are you using a GPU switching software such as Nvidia Optimus? If not I would recommend getting this as it will handle switching between graphics cards seamlessly based on the software applications running.
