Launch stuck in update loop, now won't start

Today I got an automatic update to the launch that finished downloading and prompted me to restart the Launch.

I restarted and it began downloading another (or the same) update and repeated the steps of restarting the launcher and seeing the download a few times before I ignored the message to restart and continued on my merry way.

I ended up crashing my project, which prompted me to re-open the launcher to navigated back to the project. The error log screen is unhelpful to say the least:

“You do not have any debugging symbols required to display the callstack for this crash.”

The report file is slightly more helpful:

AppPath=C://Program Files (x86)//Epic Games//Launcher//Portal//Binaries//Win64//EpicGamesLauncher.exe
ReportDescription=The application crashed while running the game

I’m out of my depth trying to parse the rest of the crash report.

Here is the zip of the crash report

Looking forward to any guidance.

Hi Jumbolove,

I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble. Could you please provide your DxDiag and debugging logs? Information on how to get these logs can be found here.

I ended up reinstalling the Epic Launcher.
You can mark this as resolved.
