- Check the Internet Connection
- Check if the server is down
- Run the Epic Games as an administrator
- Scan the game’s file
- Reset Network Profile
- Uninstall, remove the game’s files and reinstall the game
Let us talk about them in detail.
1] Check the Internet Connection
Since we are unable to update the launcher, an apt solution is checking for the Internet Connection and making sure that we are receiving an ample amount of bandwidth. In order to do the same, make use of a free Internet Speed tester. If your Internet is slow, reboot your router, and then if that doesn’t work, ask your ISP to resolve the issue.
2] Check if the server is down
Next up, we need to make sure that portal from the update that is supposed to be downloaded is up and running. For that, there are various down detectors or status.epicgames.com. We can use one of them to do the job. In case, the server is down, there is nothing you can do other than wait for the issue to be resolved. It will take some time for the server to be up and running.
3] Run the Epic Games as an administrator
Sometimes, the launcher doesn’t install the downloaded update due to the lack of privileges. It needs to access files stored on your computer and install them on top of the existing copy. In case, it is failing to do the same, run the application with administrative privileges.
To do the same, just right-click on the app and select Run as administrator.
4] Scan the game’s files
In case, you get this error message when launching a particular game, it is very likely that the game’s files are corrupted. The corruption can happen during an update or during the initial installation process. We can use the Epic Games launcher to verify the integrity of game files. Follow the steps given below to do the same.
- Open Epic Games Launcher.
- Go to the Library.
- Click on the three vertical dots associated with the faulty game and then click on Verify.
Wait for some time as the issue is resolved. Hopefully, this will do the job for you.
5] Reset Network Protocols
While updating the launcher, your computer must connect to the server and maintain the conversation channel to complete the process. In case the protocol required to do this job has some glitches, the process will fail. To resolve the issue, we need to reset the associated protocols using Command Prompt. So, open Command Prompt with administrative privileges.
netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset
After running all the commands, reboot your computer and if possible, your router. Then, launch Epic Games and see if the issue persists.
6] Uninstall, remove the game’s files and reinstall the game
If nothing worked, our last resort is removing the game completely and then reinstalling it. To do the same, open Epic Games, go to Library, click on the three dots of the game, and then select Uninstall. Now, open File Explorer and go to the Epic Games game folder. By default, go to the following location.
C:\Program Files\Epic Games\
Right-click on the game’s folder that’s not launching and select Delete. Finally, reinstall the game from the Epic Games store and check if the issue is resolved.
Hopefully, you can resolve the issue using the solutions mentioned in this article.
