Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

No Generate VS Solution choice when right-click .uproject


I have searched online and it turns out there are not solution to my problem. I have Visual Studio 2013 Professional installed and the latest 4.5 Unreal engine. But when I right-click the .uproject file there are no choice for me to generate VS solution. I have to run the .uproject to get the VS Solution, but I find that's not convenient.

So anyone has any idea on how to solve the problem?

Thank you very much!

Hey Schiney-

Was your project originally created with code or was it a blueprint project that you are adding code to?

FYI...I ran into this same problem and I just had to update the file association to use this executable in my Unreal Engine project.

Run Unreal Version Selector executable found in Engine/Binaries/Win64 and see if that helps.

I only find the version Selector from Launcher/Engine/Binaries/Win64...I have run it but it says "The current folder does not contain an engine installation"...I have also tried uninstall and reinstall everything,but it still happens...

Did you solve it ?

I have a similar issue, and I cannot yet solve it. In the past, when my uproject files did not have the unreal right click options, I would just run the engine, it would detect the problem, and it would pop up and ask me if it should fix it. This time, I ran 4.18.3 and 4.17.2, and it neither detected the problem, nor offered to fix it. I'm installing older versions in hopes that one of them still does this. VersionSelector exe doesn't do anything for me, same as Schiney above. I ran it from every location, and it just doesn't work.

Hey hamokshaelzaki-

What is the issue that you're having? If you are trying to create the VS solution files from your .uproject, is the project code based or purely blueprints?
