@ HAF-Blade - Tried your solution of clickin gthe little downward arrow, which lists all versions and it works! Like everyone else, trying to find this was likehaving your teeth pulled wothout gas! This has relieved some of the pain!


I love you sir,idk how I couldn’t see that

I cant click the little + icon, so I cant get the option to add other versions. Have 4.27.2 installed. No other options given… Do I need to uninstall it?


this is def the solution!! ok… i had this same problem, no download ue anywhere or be4 that just an older version, i uninstalled epic launcher twice and no succes. but the third time I thought to go to settings/apps and delete both epic launcher and epic online services. went to unreal site to be sure i got the right updated version of epic launcher, and boom after install and logging in, there was ue5 as a choice. :smiley:

also before that i accidentally deleted ue old version i could download and my button even after oinly epic launcher reinstall was en stayed greyed out, this is the solution im sure

I dont have any old version so nothing works for me. clicking the + in library just does nothing

What a crock of sheet! Why is it not possible to install version 5 without asking for help?

The launcher directs you to a web page. The web page directs you back to the launcher.

This is called an endless loop. It would be so easy for a new starter at the company to work out a way to break this loop and send us to a page where you can actually download it!

But noooooo!

Does not give me any confidence in the engine’s capabilities. Hopefull, a totally different team of developers work on the engine as opposed to the team that works on the launcher and website!!!

I really don’t know why everyone has so many problems with this.

I’m using this method (like described above) since several releases and it always worked.

You don’t need an old version…

Simply click in the plus next to “engine versions” than a new grey entry will appear where you can use the arrow to select your version , you want.

I’m irritated that so many people are having problems with this but it might be that I’m so old and used DOS commands for high memory loading, only to play computer games, in the old days, that such simple GUI problems don’t care me anymore. :smiley:

Thank you was every helpful as i had the same problem!

Please look up my comment above.

I did not re-install launcher.

Just Initiate install of this version (4.27.2)
Agree to terms.
Then cancel before install starts.
Go back to launcher
Under library - it asks if you want to “contibue install or delete”
Click “DELETE”
It will now remove that old version and clear teh plate
Click on + next to ENGINE VERSION (under Library)
You can now add UE5 ***
Click install
You are GOOD TO GO!

I hope this helps everyone.

That is exactly how I solved it (by chance)!

After hours of frustration, I clicked install to 4.27.1 and stopped just after agree to terms (did cancel on install location). When I went back to installer (under Library tab at the top mind you), I NOW had the option to uninstall that version. Once that was done, I clicked the + next to ENGINE VERSION and 5.0.1 was their to download.

I hope this helps. Cheers D2B
