My fortnite Not running
« on: April 13, 2019, 05:22:44 AM »
My Fortnite recently wouldn't open, so I deleted it, I tried reinstalling it, but it keeps telling me to shut down epic games launcher cause it's currently running. and I can't permanently delete it because it still says my epic games launcher is running!

Try checking Task Manager.

Open Task Manager as an administrator (right-click, 'Run as administrator')

Navigate to the "Processes" tab and look for 'EpicGamesLauncher' then click on 'End task.'

Additionally, browse through the "Start-up" tab and check the status of the launcher. Chances are, the program is set to open at start-up.

Select it and click on "Disable" to make sure the problem does not occur after rebooting.

I hope that fixed it :).

Reformat your computer. That's the best solution.

Try to check if your computer has a virus that keeps you away from playing or try restarting your computer or reinstalling the game.
