Error Connection to the server failed

I just downloaded the Epic Games Launcher yesterday and i’m a little frustrated, I installed it but when I try to run it it says “ERROR Unable to reach the Epic Servers at this time” It gives me two option “Retry” or “Ok”. I have looked over the troubleshooting to no avail. I’ve reinstalled it twice, I’ve added the “-http=wininet” and that doesn’t work. I am running windows 8.1 I don’t know if that has anything to do with it, as far as I know it shouldn’t matter.

Hi Blacknight74,

Try the troubleshooting steps in this section of the troubleshooting guide.

If nothing works, follow the steps here to generate your Debug Logs. Post them here, along with your Dxdiag/system specs.

Do you know if you are behind a proxy or firewall?
