Acquiring Prerequisites?

Hi all. Ive got 4.11 installed via launcher, and ive just downloaded 4.12 from source.

I cant download on my pc at the minute however, grabbed the source via my mobile.

Is there any way to get the required files somewhere else as opposed to using the setup.bat ?

Thanks in advance all!

Hi ,

Apologies. I think you misunderstood.

Im not having any difficulty in using the launcher.
Ive downloaded the source for 4.12 on my mobile, as my mobile has unlimited data. I don’t have unlimited tethering data however.

So when I run the Setup.bat, it tries to grab the prerequisites. However it cant due to no internet connection on my pc.

I wanted to know if there was any other method to download them. So I can download them on my phone and transfer across somehow.


My apologies, that is a bit different.

Unfortunately, we haven’t had this occur often in the past, so I don’t have a concise answer. However, we do have a launcher article that may apply in this case:

Please try to get the prereqs from here and see if it allows you to move forward. If not, please let me know and we can continue looking into this.
