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"

Hello MoneyTime,

If you turn off IntelliSense in Visual Studio, that should allow you to skip that step entirely.

Hi Jonathan,

I have tried the solution above and am still unable to create the new project using the unreal project browser. The application still freezes on Binding IntelliSense Data (100%)

So when it gets to "Binding IntelliSense Data (100% )", it simply never finishes? That's either a problem with VisualStudio or with the Engine. If it's VisualStudio, we might be able to find the problem if you do the following:

Download this attached file and delete the .txt extension. Run the batch file and it will create an info file that can tell us more about your visual studio installation.

Are you using the Launcher or GitHub version of the editor? Neither one should have this issue, but if you've had this same problem in multiple versions, then that means it's unlikely to be a problem with your specific engine installation.

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for getting back. To provide additional information: "Binding IntelliSense Data (100%)" never finishes only way to unfreeze the program is to kill the unreal builder in the task manager. I have also attempted to use multi versions of the engine and get the same result. I am using the Launcher version of the editor. I have also uninstalled both VS 2013 Pro and Unreal (completely deleting the program files etc) and jthen reinstalled first VS 2013 then Unreal, same result.

Here are the results of the batch:

Hi Jonathan,

I wanted to provide you with an update. I was able to get the project to work by doing the following steps. The Batch file originally showed some errors which I fixed but this did not fully fix the problem.

Here are the steps:

Most of this rooted from 2 problems, A failed uninstall of express while a pro was installed, errors in the path env

To fix all the problems I

  1. Re installed express

  2. Removed express

  3. Removed vs pro

  4. Deleted the program folder

  5. Deleted registry items related to vs express and pro

  6. Deleted path references

  7. Re installed pro after a fresh restart

This cleaned up my VS problem

I then reviewed the path and noticed that 2 entries had quotes which is incorrect. The quotes were removed , Unreal reinstalled, and then restarted the computer. After that the launcher is able to generate c++ files

Thanks again for looking into this and providing some direction

Glad to help. Thanks for letting me know that the problem was due to an incomplete uninstall of Express - that could help other users in the future.
