UE4 launcher cant install, fail at Directx install

It looks like you are missing the msi file extension in the command. Try the following:

msiexec /i “C:\UnrealEngineInstaller-1.5.1-2214492.msi” SKIP_DIRECTX=“1”

If you still have the problem, we’ll need more info about the error you are seeing.

msiexec /i “C:\UnrealEngineInstaller-1.5.1-2214492.msi” SKIP_DIRECTX = “1”

the above command only returns the windows installer properties window, but no error, which is an improvement I suppose :slight_smile:

WAIT!!! i noticed a space or two and now its installing!!! Thank you for all your help!!

THX It finally works God bless you

Thanks works great.

Thanks a lot

simple thing just start task manager and end task insteler whe it came to direct x

how do u do that could you please walk me through running the installer using a comand line thanks <3

You can use the Windows command prompt - Introduction to the Windows Command Prompt

Hi is there a new run command for the new launcher because the msiexec /i “C:\UnrealEngineInstaller-1.5.1-2214492.msi” SKIP_DIRECTX = “1” was posted 4 years ago could you perhaps tell me the new command line thanks

The proper command line is a combination of the text above and the location of the launcher install file on your own computer

  1. Open the command prompt and type: cd\

  2. Paste in the following text:


3.Go to the folder where the launcher install file is saved. Probably in “Downloads”

4.In the toolbars on the top left of the folder window you’ll see an icon for “COPY PATH”. It’s next to “Cut” and “Paste”

5.Single click the launcher install file and then click “COPY PATH”

6.Go back to the command prompt line and Paste (Ctrl+V) the path into the line of text in place of the XXXXXXXX. It should now read something like:

C:>msiexec /i “C:\Users\YOUR_PROFILE_NAME\Downloads\EpicInstaller-7.5.0.msi” SKIP_DIRECTX=“1”

7.Now press ENTER


9.Until you get to the next error where the thing won’t install the prerequisite. Then see this page. It’s a quick fix.

After 4 weeks I want to give up. Nothing work it stop at direct x each time.

I attached the log.zip any help would be awesome.
