Can the Launcher recognize a UE4 version DL'd from another PC?

Hello, guys.

I don’t know if this is the right forum to post this, but here it goes anyway. I have a very bad internet connection at home that makes downloading anything a pain in the neck: frequent loss of connections, prolonged drops of internet speed and altogether erratic behavior.

Here’s the thing. From my unreal community account, I have downloaded UE 4.8.3 from my PC at work and I can’t manage to make the launcher at home recognize that 4.8.3 is installed on my PC at home. Is there a way to make this happen?

If you copy it to the same folder that the launcher expects to find it in (default C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.X) and then start downloading it, the launcher should verify the installed engine before downloading any missing files (or hotfixes).
