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"

Hello Robofreak,

Are you using the desktop version of Visual Studio Express 2013? If you're using the Web, Windows app or other version, those are not compatible with UE4. Also, please look into the license for Visual Studio Community 2013 as this is usually a more viable option and is still free to download. It will also allow you to use UnrealVS if you wish.

The Desktop version of Visual Studio 2013 Express should work, but it would be best to use the Community version on this page if you can. It's the purple one on the left.

Please don't bump your post without more information without waiting at least 3 days for a response. Can you please go to your Control Panel > Programs & Features to make sure that Visual Studio is installed?

I'm sorry I didn't now that on programs and features stand on the list microsoft visual studio community 2015

That could be the issue. As of now, the binary version of the engine (the version that is downloaded from the launcher) is not compatible with Visual Studio 2015. You'll need to download Visual Studio 2013 Community from this page if you wish to use a compiler with the binary version of the engine.
