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"

UE 4.10 can't detect VS 2013

I installed UE 4.10 on my laptop for a university project , however , when I try to create a c++ project based it shows me a line written in red that it does not detect a c++ compiler and I should install vs 2015 , I have vs 2013 and I don't really have a good internet speed that will make me download vs 2015 in a short time , so any solution for this ?? I tried the enviroment variables solution but it was pointing to the right directories

If you want use VS 2013, you need download source code of the UE4 from GitHub and compile it in the VS 2013. Because precompiled version of the UE4 from Epic Launcher was compiled in VS 2015. Another way - just install free version of the VS 2015.

Hi KhaledSalem999,

Open a command prompt in the root of 4.10 and run the generateprojectfiles.bat as so.

Generateprojectfiles.bat -2013

This should generate 2013 project files and solutions. There must be some remnants of 2015 that exist on your machine for the project file generator to think it is a valid install.

I'd be interested to hear if VS2015 was ever installed on that machine. Maybe an expired trial perhaps?
