I can´t download the Unreal Engine Version 4.8.1

I need to dwonload the Unreal Engine Version 4.8.1, but I am unable to do so through the Epic Games Launcher. I can only download the 4.8.2, which is the one I am currently using. I need to download the 4.8.1, because that is the only version I have at my school, and it won´t open correctly my projects made in version 4.8.2.
Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Hi brianorbea,

Unfortunately there’s not way to get a previous binary version through the Launcher. If the school doesn’t update to 4.8.2, you can grab the source version of 4.8.1 from GitHub at home and build that. Here’s the link to that (note you must have set up your GitHub account with Epic to see it):


If you haven’t built from source before, here’s some information on how to do that:

Note that it’s worth asking the school to upgrade to 4.8.2, which fixes some crashes in 4.8.1. Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot for the information!
