Issues fixed[edit]

Game does not launch after UE4 Prerequisites (x64) fail to install[edit]

If you already have the prerequisites installed, the first time setup can erroneously prompt you to uninstall them.
Skip to step 3 if Steam is not running the first time setup.
  1. If you haven't already, run the game and its first time setup.
  2. Uninstall UE4 Prerequisites (x64) when prompted. The game should fail to launch here.
  3. Exit Steam.
  4. Go to <path-to-game>\Redist\.
  5. Run and install UE4PRereqSetup_x64.exe. It should say "Install" and not "Uninstall".
  6. Restart Steam.
