My Epic game launcher wont open

when I click the application…it doesn’t open…i have tried running it as an administrator and also checked my task manger but still haven’t been able to open it…Please help me

Can you tell us anything about the machine you’re trying to run it on?

  • OS
  • CPU
  • GPU
  • RAM
  • Antivirus software

With the information given, it’s hard to tell what’s preventing your editor from opening.

You might want to install it again following the instruction below.
[Installing Unreal Engine | Unreal Engine Documentation]

i have installed it successfully but the application doesn’t open where you login with your epic game launcher account and download the games…it keeps loading for 2 secs when I click it but then nothing happens

Have you already referred the link below?

[A new, community-hosted Unreal Engine Wiki - Announcements - Unreal Engine Forums]

If you still can’t solve the problem, please post your DxDiag report.

Yes I have been referred that link before and I have tried everything but it still doesn’t work

If my assumption is right and you were planning on running UE4 on this machine, you can forget about it right now. Your video card is unsupported, there’s not enough RAM and the processor is way too weak.

While this does not explain why you can’t run the launcher itself, you will be unable to accomplish anything else anyway. It’s a terrible idea to use a computer like this for production of any scope; even if all you have in mind is just messing about in the editor.
