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"

Error: Failed to Open Descriptor File

Hey I am getting this error when I try to debug or run the editor from VS2013 using "Development Editor".

Failed to open descriptor file: 'C:/UE4/UnrealEngine/udk/udk.uproject'

The problem is that this is an invalid file path. The above folder doesn't exist. How can I change the file path when running the build using VS2013??

Anybody else solve this problem. I have UE 4.16.2, the pop up comes up saying I couldn't find descriptor file and goes on to list the wrong directory where the descriptor file is, very much like the post says above.

Make sure you dont have any arguments specified in your debug command line in the UE4 project.
