How To: Epic Launcher & Fortnite Deployment

C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\FortniteGame\PersistentDownloadDir


This tutorial will show you how to manually deploy Epic Launcher & Fortnite on your client PCs.

  • First, install and update Epic Launcher & Fortnite on a client PC as you would normally do.

  • After fully Installing & updating Epic Launcher & Fortnite, exit Epic Launcher and use Gizmo file Transfer (or any other means) to copy the following files/folders to your file server:

1. C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Launcher\ Epic Launcher files
2. C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\ Fortnite game files
3. C:\ProgramData\Epic\ Fortnite update status

No registry information is neccessary for the game to work

  •  Create 3 deployment profiles, one for each folder and deploy the files to the original destination.


If the game is deployed to a different destination, Epic game launcher will not detect it.

If you need to deploy the game to a different destination folder and/or drive, you need to do the following:

  1. Create a new task-junction
  2. Add the original Fortnite folder path in source path of junction
  3. Add the target Fortnite folder path in Destination Path of junction
  4. Add the junction task in Pre-deploy tasks of the game
