In order to prepare a Windows 7 image for deployment, I am using VMware Workstation 10 to setup and install all software required by student and faculty at our school. So far UE4 is only software which I cannot run from a virtual host client given its limitation with DirectX. It should be noted that Unity installs (and runs!) without issue. Is there any way to install latest UE4 engine, even if I cannot open frontend from a VMWare client? Alternatively is there any way to prepare a network deployment that does not involve downloading many GB of data from web on each host? i.e. offline package with frontend AND engine.

Once you are ready to deploy at your school, you can follow these simple instructions:
