Is there any way to install on multiple machines without having to re-download 8GB ?


I would like to install onto more than one machine however (for my school computer and my home computer). I have an account not logged in at home, however when I copy over data it ends up trying to redownload all 8GB of data again which is impossible on my school network.

Is there a work around for this that I am missing, I looked through documentation on installing but there was not much information there at the moment.



One of my colleagues found the solution to this problem:

Thanks to PGGreen I have the solution for Windows 7.

Step 1: Copy the entire Unreal Engine folder from where you installed it and copy this over the new computer install location.

Step 2: Locate within your C:\ - the ProgramData folder (This folder is hidden and will need to be displayed).

Step 3: You need to copy the folder called “Epic” from the C:\ of the computer that you have installed this successfully on and copy it onto the new computer in the same location.

This means that you will not have to re-download the distributed files again.

Hope this helps !
