I installed the launcher but I get a "Please Wait" and can't ever launch it?

I installed the launcher , 2.8.3 version because I am trying to play Paragon. Unfortunately I cannot launch the launcher! It just says “please wait” and if I hover over it, it says “we are currently experiencing connection issues and are retrying”.

Here is my Dxdiag as I know everyone always asks for it. Thank you for any help in advance! I am really wanting to try out Paragon so any help is much appreciated.

You could first try out some of the possible solutions listed here until you get official reply after checking out dxdiag: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Troubleshooting_Launcher_Problems#The_Launcher_fails_to_load_or_crashes_on_load

I’ve had the same issue when I reinstalled my new OS a couple of weeks ago & one of the solutions mentioned there [specifically adding “-http=wininet” to the target path] seemed to help.
