In my launcher I do not get the option to install Unreal Engine 4.5.
I had installed the preview version of 4.5, but I was having issues when trying to update to the stable release version. So, I deleted the preview version. But, now I do not get Unreal Engine 4.5 as an option in the launcher.
My Unreal Engine Launcher version is 1.8.1-2322947
I need badly to install 4.5 since it has fixed some issues that affected me.
EDIT: I still do not get unreal 4.5 in my launcher. Meanwhile, I have compiled it from source. But, I am afraid that I will miss some integrations with the launcher.
Thanks for reporting this issue. When you go into the Library section of the Launcher, have you select the ‘+ Add Engine’ Button at the top of the window? this will bring up a new slot for the Engine.When you click on the button, a new slot should open just below it. You should be able to select which engine version you would wish to use. Here is a screenshot that may make it a bit clearer:
You should then get a new slot where you can select the version number of UE4 you wish to use:
I downloaded 4.5 yesterday, and used it all day today. Now though, when I open the launcher it says 4.5.0 Preview. I can open project files form Explorer though, and they open in 4.5.0 (which is still downloaded on my computer). I’m using Win 8.1. Screenshot below (account blacked out for privacy).
Tried restarting my computer and launcher. Neither worked however now as I just got back home and checked my launcher after it has been on for a few hours it doesn’t show the preview anymore but simply 4.5 (fixed with other words). No idea how it got fixed.
