Why does epic games launcher crash?

Just yesterday, 6/16/20, it was working fine and even installed a bunch of free dlc for Ark: Survival Evolved. However, since getting on today it has crashed every time, with the attached error message. Does anyone know how to fix this? There’s no sign of LavaSoft in my file explorer. I’ve tried restarting my laptop and uninstalling and reinstalling the launcher, neither of which worked.

Pretty sure it has to do with the dlc. It’s probably a bug or maybe for some reason epic games launcher couldn’t handle downloading that many dlc at once which is dumb. You should hit them up just in case. What model is your computer, least to make sure its not a hardware/software issue on your end?

I am getting the same error and cant seem to get into epic games! did you find a fix?

I’m using the Predator Helios 300 with windows 10, which makes me certain it’s not an issue on my end as this laptop is a beast when it comes to most game requirements. It downloaded and installed the dlc with no problem, but now it just won’t open either the game or the launcher.

Sadly, no. So far all I’ve gotten is a suggestion to contact them, which I’ll be taking.

I’m having the same problem but I downloaded all the dlc just fine so I don’t think that would be the problem.

I have the same problem

Just uninstalled ark (delete) and uninstaled epic launcher and now im at 39% from ark

How can I uninstall ark aswell? I can’t seem to find the place where I can uninstall it.
EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out and it actually solved the problem.
