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"

[Closed] Cooked for Windows but "Failed to open descriptor file"

Hi there,

my Team and I build our Game for Windows and used several Engine Versions, startet shortly before it got free to use and now ended up with current Version 4.9.1. So I cooked the Game for Windows 64 Bit and it completed in about an hour, but when I am trying to start the .exe it just says "Failed to open descriptor file '../../../Projectname-Win64-Shipping/Projectname-Win64-Shipping.uproject'". So I googled a bit, but most of the Answers are really old, so not really appropriate for our problem with our version of the Engine. I tryed all of the solutions i found, but none helped.

So maybe someone around here has the Answer

Edit: Maybe worth mentioning is the fact, that after i renamed the "Projectname-Win64-Shipping.exe" in "WindowsNoEditor\Projectname\Binaries\Win64\" to just "Projectname.exe" the Error Message changed to "The game module 'Projectname' could not be found. Please make sure that this module exists and that it is compiled."

Product Version: UE 4.9
