Unreal Engine 5 crashes on Start up

You are amzing !!! Thank you soo much!!!

Hi ! It’s not working for me. UE is launching only whithout Bridge in the Plug-in.
Any idea what else I could do ?

Edit : Ok, I found a way → I actually needed to reinstall Bridge via the vault on Epic.
Thx anyway for pointing out the fact that it was Bridge’s fault.

This helped me as well, thanks!

None of the processes mentioned here is not working for me!!!

Hi, where can I find the plugin folder in UE5? I couldn’t find any folders starting with the word “plugin”.

Same issue, but mine never worked from the moment I downloaded UE5. I verified the UE5 files and, no luck, still crashes. This is a shame, I never used UE and wanted to get into game development with the recent release. If anyone has an idea of how to fix, let me know.

I had a similar problem: couldn’t even load a new project with UE5. I realized that when I open a project first with UE 4.27 I can open it with UE5 and upgrade it.

I was in need to update Bridge and Engine version in Epic Vault (after doing your steps), so that the problem was solved

Hi iam new to UE have a not same solution but its same error and iam geting stressed when it crashes i tried all of fixes are in this post an 0 worked. Can any body help me?

Hi everyone, for me what worked is to change from DirectX 12 to DirectX 11 in the Project Setting section.

Hi guys,
I had the same issues but not in UE 5 BUT I wont be here if something worked for me! :smiley:
I tested a bit by dropping one Folder by another out of the Project.
The corrupt Folder at the end was “Intermediate” you can find it in “Unreal Projects - Your Project - Intermediate”.
Drop it on the desktop or save it else were.

I hope it works for you guys.

See ya
