If it helps, i installed it through steam, however am launching it from the batch file rather than through steam

Hey, please don’t download the dev kit from Steam. we have some outdated information that needs to be updated. You’ll want to grab the dev kit from the unreal site. Here’s a video walking you through it.

Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for the info. I was having the same problem after downloading from Steam. I nuked that install and now I’m downloading from the Unreal launcher. 61 GB to go! :slight_smile:

If anyone has some time and access to the Wiki, that is the source of the bad info that I saw leading me down the wrong path. The page that gets open after installing all of that does have the new instructions, but by that point I had already downloaded 45 GB and jumped through a few hoops RE Github etc, so I tried to get that working rather than abandon it for the new method. Alas, it wasn’t workable as I got the FClearClutter shader compilation error.

Attempt #2 here we go! :slight_smile:
