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"

[Closed] Is Visual Studio 2010 supported?

I just received the PDF file and in that on page 4 it is mentioned "...activate Visual Studio 2012 prior to...". I only have VS 2010 (C# and VB.NET. No C++) installed. I plan to install C++ later after playing with Rocket a bit. So is Visual Studio 2010 supported?

I just loaded it up my project in VS2010 and it (seems) to work just fine.

This may be a little superficial, but VS2012's GUI style makes my eyeballs want to run from my head. :-)

Try this - It is much easier on my eyeballs. TOOLS > Options > Environment (General) > Change the Color theme to Dark

woohoo Alexander your tip was very helpful to me!

Something else I like to do is also

Tools->options->fonts and colors

and change all the backgrounds to black

and I do my best to make the output window look as...friendly as possible given that I am staring at it constantly :)

this is my new output window thanks to your tip Alex!

There were a couple new releases and the information says that 2013 is required although with the optional.zip you could build with 2012. Does VS2010 still work/compile or do we need to move to a newer compiler?

VS2010 is no longer supported.

You'll preferably need VS2013, or alternatively we still support VS2012 (for now).

I work at Microsoft as a Tech Evangelist (and was also a Rocket tester, and UDK author).

If you or anyone working on an UE4 project need Visual Studio, I can set you up with BizSpark for free, which will grant everyone on your team a license for Visual Studio Premium 2013.
