The newest version of the launcher.
The self-update window appears the launcher successfully updates itself.
What does not
At least on my Nvidia system, the launcher update process fails on pre-requirements with the error code "SU-PQR1603".
Terminal output is:
LogPrerequisites: Error: Prerequisites executable failed with code 1603 LogBuildPatchServices: Error: EBuildPatchInstallError::PrerequisiteError PQR1603 LogSelfUpdateService: Error: Update staging failed. LogWindows: Warning: Register touch input failed! LogPortal: Error: FAlertReporter: Reporting Alert code: SU-PQR1603
I managed to find the executable:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Portal\SelfUpdateStaging\Install\Portal\Extras\Redist\LauncherPrereqSetup_x64.exe"
which, on manual execution, returns with code 1603. The executable is a cab file, so can be extracted with cabextract and it contains a DirectX runtime installation.
So that apparently fails with Nvidia. Unfortunately the SkipBuildPatchPrereq command line argument workaround doesn't work anymore, with newer Epic Games Launcher versions.
What was not tested
The game launcher ran before, when testing older versions of the game launcher. Starting games could not be tested.
Version of the Launcher: 10.2.2-7064828
