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"

This could be a variety of things. If you've built the Unreal Engine from source, you may have to compile CrashReportClient. Or if you're packaging for shipping, make sure you've built for shipping. If you're using stock Unreal Engine, then it could be several different problems. It could be an issue with assets. Check that your map sizes aren't too big. I've had issues with maps larger than 500 mb.

If you could post the specifics of your error, that would help greatly.

So obviously automation tool is failing to run. Is your project content only, or do you have C++ source code? Also, make sure your blueprints are all compiling properly. That can cause errors in packaging too.

Regardless, you should check your Build/Package/Cook logs to see what they're saying.

If you don't know where those are, you can find them here: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Locating_Project_Logs

I am not using any blueprints in my project at all . and i have no c++ code in use. i think it is this if i am not mistaking : in UAT_LOG : AutomationTool terminated with exception: Exception in mscorlib: An item with the same key has already been added.

Try making a new blank project and exporting that. If that packages successfully, you know that it's an issue with an asset, rather than the engine. If it doesn't package successfully, you might try reinstalling Unreal.

i found that i had a corrupt map . after deleting it i was able to make one good cook. but it didn't start the game. so when i made a second attempt i received another error . this time : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'C:\Program Files\Unreal Engine\4.8\Engine\Intermediate\Build\Win64\UE4\Development\Launch\PCLaunch.rc.res'

The LNK1181 is a substance plugin related error. after uninstalling it all was good and I could finish my cook.
