We had been running the Epic Games Launcher and Unreal Engine successfully behind a proxy server using the -http=wininet option. However, since the launcher updated to version 2.4.0-264328 this option no longer works. When entering the username and password and clicking the Sign In button, we’re presented with a ‘please wait’ dialogue box and nothing else happens. If I bypass the proxy, it signs in without a problem. However, because we’re in a school environment, allowing students to bypass the proxy isn’t a viable solution.
Could someone confirm that -http=wininet is still a valid command for this latest version of the launcher, and if it is, where else might I be going wrong?
Many thanks in advance for any help.
