I’m trying to deploy Epic Games Launcher in an academic environment.
I can install it silently using
msiexec /i EpicGamesLauncherInstaller-2.11.9-2970807.msi /qn. On first launch it will try to download and install a different version. So I added
-noselfupdate to the end of the target line in the shortcut (as suggested here), but this results in the launcher hanging at “Please Wait”.
When I google the issue, the only result is someone with the same problem (posted in January 2016).
