When UE4 was released i downloaded it played around and gave up.
Over a year later i’ve come up with a story board, have an artist and a great idea for a Mobile game.
Back when i first installed UE4 i had an Western Digital 3TB drive, Which soon died and was removed. Its drive letter was Q:
The reason thats relevant is whenever ive tried to install UE4 in the past 3 days i get the error “Invalid drive path Q:”
-To troubleshoot this i went to my replacement drive “X:” and have run shrink on it for 30gb. Made another partition, Labeled it Q:
Reran the setup - It installed fine.
Logged into my account - Went to install UE4 engine SDK and realised the partition i had created was too small. Only 30gb. After assets and development id need atleast 100.
So i uninstalled - Removed the partition. Re-shrank the X: drive 130gb this time. Went to reinstall and i get this:
After clicking install [Note the empty drive path]
So what have i done to troubleshoot since.
Regedit. [used regscanner] looked for all unreal taged entries. Deleted them
Looked for all “EpicGameLauncher” tags. Removed all those entries.
Went to Uninstall Programs.
Uninstalled everything Unreal related.
Still the error remains.
Out of share frustration i booted into a Windows 7 USB and partitioned a drive to install clean Win7 onto it to install UE4 and use. However now that ive gone to Windows 10 - I cant use any of the drives that Windows 10 has associated to it. Without completely formatting them [Not an option! ]
So Back to windows 10 i go.
The error remains, Ive re-downloaded 3 times. It must be a registry error with the old installation,. But i cant find anymore entries relating to it anywhere. Nor can i find ANY files related to it.
as far as Regedit and explorer searches are concerned UE4 is no where on this PC. All i can assume is there are several key reg entries that arent tagged Unreal engine or Epic Games launcher that i cant find and havent removed - Hence causing this silly error.
Im so frustrated that i think ill give up for today and maybe tomorrow - I need a break! Been banging my head all day for solutions.
Can someone PLEASE give me some advice. I know Windows 10 isnt supported but im sure this issue is related to the fact i had installed this on release back when i was on Win7 and had that other now dead hard drive installed
If anyone can help - Oh god would that be amazing, Google hasnt been very useful.
Many people with similar issues but none that are identical and none of which solutions work in my case!
