Please note that copies of Elite Dangerous purchased from the Epic Game Store MUST be run through the Epic launcher, as detailed in this FAQ.
I'VE JUST BOUGHT THE GAME, HOW DO I LOG IN WITH EPIC?
Once you have entered the launcher for the first time, you need to link your Epic account to your Frontier account. After this is done, you need to select "LOG IN" and you'll be logged in automatically to your linked Epic account. If your account isn't linked yet, see below.
WHAT IF I'M PROMPTED TO LINK MY ACCOUNT?

I'M ALREADY LOGGED IN WITH MY FRONTIER ACCOUNT, HOW DO I LOG OUT?
If you already own a copy of Elite Dangerous, purchased from the Frontier store, and have previously logged in with your Frontier account details, you will first need to log out before you can log back in using your Epic Games account.
To do this, open up the launcher, select "Options" followed by "Log out Machine", this will reset your launcher.
