How to fix “OS Not Supported” in Fortnite?
When trying to launch Fortnite or another game through the Epic Games Launcher, mostly on the first launch, the message “OS not supported” may appear. If the interface language is English – “Unsupported OS”. This message replaces the Start button and prevents you from playing the game. In general, the message speaks for itself, but this is far from the only reason for the problem.
How to remove the error “OS is not supported”?
The player, in particular in Fortnite, needs to check two main points: compliance with the minimum requirements and the presence of a 64-bit system. The game does not work by default on Windows x32.
There are three ways to restart the game:
- Check that the computer meets at least the minimum requirements for the game. The two main points are a minimum of Intel Core i3 2.4 GHz and 4 GB of RAM. As for the video card, the game is undemanding, it runs even on the integrated Intel HD 4000. Improving the performance of the PC should help.
- Installing a 64-bit system. The first step is to make sure that x32 Windows is currently installed. To do this, right-click on “This PC” and select “Properties”. In the window that appears, we are interested in the line “System type”. This line also indicates whether the processor supports 64-bit Windows.
- Application of a virtual machine. Helps to create a virtual operating system. True, in this case, it makes little sense to save the x32 OS, it is better to just reinstall it to x64. And yet it is possible to install VirtualBox and a 64-bit OS in it. It is important to understand that the performance of such a system will be greatly reduced.
Once the minimum requirements are resolved, Fortnite will launch just like any other Epic Games game.
