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"

Visual studio fails to compile and connect to UE4 properly

Hello, Just started to connect UE4 with VS2013 Ultimate and it's not working :(

I'm trying to do the Hello World tutorial from here

Upon creating new C++ project (instead of blueprint) I get the following message:

The project failed to compile with this version of the engine. Would you like to open the project in Visual Studio?

The following log is showing upon selecting show log:

The project failed to compile with this version of the engine. Build output is as follows:

I've acted as instructed in here and at the Set the Startup Project step I have no project types to choose from.

Working with VS2013 ultimate and UE 4.7.0 preview 8.

Please help.

Problem solved! My Windows user-name was in non-english characters and changing just the log-on name and having all the paths for the project and installations in english is not enough. So I made a new user and now it works.

I hope that by EU5 it will be more tolerant to non-english characters in the system.

Thank you for your help and I hope that other people who got stuck like me for this stupid reason will find this thread and solve their problem with less agony.

Hey Archonite-

The RC1015 and C1083 errors typically appear when there is a problem finding the Windows SDK. If you don't already have it on your computer you can download the Windows SDK here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279

If you're building from source code, make sure that the dependencies are installed correctly (by running the Setup.bat file). Also check anti-virus software to make sure it's not blocking anything.

Cheers

Doug Wilson

I've put out this question also here: with updated info about this mess.

The SDK didn't solve this and there are still problems. As of now I cannot build C++ projects with VS2013 ultimate on 4.7 but can on 4.6.1. I believe the fault is on the UE side rather than mine.

What is the solution configuration and solution platform you're using in Visual Studio? The first time a new code based project is built in VS you should use the "Development Editor" solution configuration and "Windows" as the solution platform. If you do not see the white boxes in the top center of the screen you can click the drop down arrow to add/remove buttons and add them from the menu.

VS fires up after I get the errors that the project could not be built (from the launcher) and when I close the project and try to re-open it fails again and prompt to enter VS and build it manually (it won't even try to start VS for me). In VS the defaults are Development Editor and Windows and I still get the following error at the output window:

I have varified the engine and no issues were detected. I tried to make a C++ project with UE 4.6.1 and while I'm not sure why the build was not successful since I just hit build when it was loaded, the project files were created successfully with no error messeges popping up.

Just to make sure I understand the steps you're taking, you select which engine version you want from the launcher and then choose to create a new code project when the project selection menu appears. After selecting a code project and giving it a name you click Create Project. Then you receive the error message stating that the project failed to compile and does not open in Visual Studio.

If this is the case and attempting to Verify the build version didn't work, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the preview version, then try creating a code project.

The code does open in VS after it asks me if I want to try to open it anyways to try to build manually.

I'll re-install 4.7 but similar errors happen to me with 4.6.1 too. It compiles the solution successfully but when I try to build it the same errors happen again.

I've installed VS2013 pro (after uninstalling ult) and UE4.7 and the same problem still persist. How can I wipe-clean VS from my computer and try again? I don't know what to do anymore :(
