My OS is Windows 10. It updates regularly and is up-to-date.
Epic Launcher’s version is
Two bug cases:
Let’s say you have successfully installed UE4 and want to add some components to it. Say, I want to add engine source code which requires less than 100 Mb or add a cooking module, like HTML5. So I open launcher, then go to Vault, press an Engine version’s dropdown and select Settings. Then I add HTML5:
I have 3.5 Gb of free space right now on my SSD. The downloaded and unpacked content is about 0.7. Nothing should stop us But, Bam! Error: Not enough free space on C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic games\4.13
So I need 9.35 GB of free space on my disc to install 535 MB of needed content
Resuming UE4 download
Just a day before I had about 20 GB of free space and decided to try out upcoming 4.14 version. It successfully launched download process and showed me a BSOD at about 60-70% of download.
(This is going to be a regular practice, a very bad practice! I had BSOD 4 times, each while downloading a particular version of UE. My OS is stable and these are the only cases I meet BSOD)
At this point UE ate a significant amount of space on my SSD and launcher is capable of resuming its download. I click ‘continue’, and… bam! Not enough free space! “Hey, but it was quite enough just an hour before!”.
So now I need to delete an uncompleted version to try installing it again while hoping that no BSODs will pop out tis time
