How can I force the Launcher to update?

After seeing “Patch failed. Retry?” for few times I decided to leave it for later and hit “No”.

Any way I can force the launcher to get the update now? :wink:

Hi phoboz,

It should properly self-update the next time you run, if it hasn’t already. What is the version number in the lower left hand corner of the launcher? To dig deeper, can you enable verbose logging by editing your DefaultEngine.ini, which you can find here: “c:\program files\unreal engine\launcher\engine\programs\noredist\unrealenginelauncher\config” and add the following section to the end:


After you make that change, can you run again, and then post the logs here? If possible, zip up the logs (c:\users\YOUR_USER\appdata\local\unrealenginelauncher\saved\logs) and post the zip here. Thanks!



Hi Carlos,

After running the launcher a few times it came up with the update again.
