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"

Cannot compile from within the Editor.

Hello, I just started out with UE4 and found myself left in the dark as I do not quite understand this error message, please help.

After trying to compile my 'Test' project from within the Editor this error popped up:

 ERROR: Couldn't find target rules file for target '-FailIfGeneratedCodeChanges' in rules assembly '-FailIfGeneratedCodeChanges_EditorRecompileModuleRules, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.
 Location: C:\Users\aeoeaa\Documents\Unreal Projects\test\Intermediate\Build\BuildRules\-FailIfGeneratedCodeChanges_EditorRecompileModuleRules.dll
 Target rules found:
 UE4Game - D:\Unreal Engine\4.0\Engine\Source\UE4Game.Target.cs
 test - C:\Users\aeoeaa\Documents\Unreal Projects\test\Source\test.Target.cs 
 testEditor - C:\Users\aeoeaa\Documents\Unreal Projects\test\Source\testEditor.Target.cs 

Any help is very much appreciated !

basically all I'm doing is this:

1) Start a new C++ project

2) Build in VS

3) Try to compile in the Editor and get that error which I mentioned above.

Am I missing something?
