Newbe trying to use Unreal for the first time

Hi all. I am a programmer but have never ventured into the games world and thought it was about time I checked it out. I downloaded the latest version of UR4, made sure all my software was up to date but when I click the launcher all I get is 2 seconds of Windows egg timer then nothing. I thought it may be doing stuff in the background so I left it overnight but still nothing. As I said this is completely new to me so it may be that I’m doing something stupid or I’m missing a vital piece of software.

PC is AMD Athlon II x4
4.00 Gb RAM
64 bit Win 7
NVIDIA GFORCE 7025 on board graphics

Have you tried this link: [Newcomers Readme!] How To Install UE4 From The Launcher](https://forums.unrealengine/showthread.php?60752-Newcomers-Readme!-How-To-Install-UE4-From-The-Launcher)

Fromt he sounds of it, it looks like you haven’t actually initiated the Launcher to download the Unreal Engine. You have only installed the Launcher … the link above will help you understand the difference.

The problem I have is that the launcher doesn’t load so I can’t get to the option to download the Unreal Engine. All I get is 2 seconds where the Windows egg timer shows after clicking the Launcher shortcut then nothing at all happens.

Okay Wocha, it might be time to post this as a bug on AnswerHub or search AnswerHub to see if there is a possible solution there. I am sorry I can’t be of more help.

Make sure to take a look at this thread: https://wiki.unrealengine/Troubleshooting_Launcher_Problems Probably one of the suggestions will solve your problem. :slight_smile:
Otherwise post it on answerhub
