Not sure if this will help but for those running 64bit Windows - Epic Games assumes it is installed in "C:\Program Files\Epic Games" which would be correct if you are running a 32bit version of Windows OS. If you are running a 64bit version you need to browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games" and select that location. should install fine from there (worked for me).

      Good luck
      This worked for me thank you!

              how do you launch as admin

                  I know a way to fix this. Go into Folder, Go into this PC, Go into documents, make a folder named 'Epic Games', Go back into epic games launcher, Click Browse, Click Documents, Click on 'Epic Games' and yso iour done. This worked for me so I hope this works for anyone else

                      I just put it into a different folder and it fixed, they should really fix this as they are now pushing for a marketplace like steam and it is very stupid how they can't get the file right.

                        1 Open This Computer/My Computer
                        2 Go to properties of disc you want to install the game
                        3 Go to seciurity tab
                        4 Click edit
                        5 Grant every single group there all the permissions
                        6 enjoy installing games there
