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"

Fatal Error when trying to compile (Linking Error LNK1104)

At the moment I am receiving this error:

Error LNK1104 cannot open file 'C:\Users\brain\Documents\Unreal Projects\StruggleOfMages\Intermediate\Build\Win64\StruggleOfMages\Development\UE4Editor-StruggleOfMages.dll.response'

It pops up when I package my project, close the editor and try to compile the code again (in VS 2015). When I rebuild my project (Build -> Rebuild "Project"), it works all fine... until the next time I package, close the editor and try to compile.

Does somebody have any suggestions?

Product Version: UE 4.9

Hello BrainDrain85,

I have a few questions for you about this.

  1. Does this happen only with your project or does the same occur with fresh projects?

  2. You mention that you're using Visual Studio 2015. Are you using a source-compiled version following the steps listed here? https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?77333-UE4-and-Visual-Studio-2015

  3. Have you tried using Visual Studio 2013? Even in a source-built version of the engine, our support for 2015 is currently still experimental and could be causing issues such as this.

Hey Matthew... sry but the problem still persists.

  1. It does not happen with a fresh C++ project.

  2. My UE4 is not a source version, but a version from the launcher compiled with VS

  3. It does also happen with VS 2013...

Seeing as it seems to be related to the code in your project, would it be possible for you to upload a copy of your project so that I can reproduce the issue locally? If you wish for the project to be private, you can send the link in a private message on our forums.

Thanks for your response. I've sent you a PM.

Thank you for sending me the project. Unfortunately I'm not having any luck reproducing the issue. I did originally get an error when trying to package the project but that disappeared after rebuilding. After that I was able to package and then able to compile directly after. Are you making any changes to the code between packaging and compiling? Otherwise, without selecting rebuild, the code shouldn't be attempting to build in the first place as it will detect that no changes have been made.

Well, it only happens sometimes. I have the feeling that it might be my PC. Because when the complie-error happens and I try to execute the packaged project right after the error, the game crashes with an array assertion error. When I restart my PC, the same packaged project works fine.

Hello Braindrain85,

Can you post the callstack and/or logs for the crash related to the array assertion error that you're getting? Also, was the editor successfully compiled before packaging?

Hello Braindrain85,

We haven't heard from you in a while. Are you still experiencing this issue? If so, can you leave a comment with your callstack/logs from the crash you're receiving? I'll be setting this issue as resolved for tracking purposes in the meantime.
