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: AutomationTool terminated with exception: ERROR: Exception in AutomationUtils.Automation: Command failed (Result:5)


I was able to package my project in version 4.10.0 but since I updgraded to 4.10.1 i'm not able to package the project anymore.

This is part of the error message:

BuildCommand.Execute: ERROR: BUILD FAILED MainFrameActions: Packaging (Windows (64-bit)): Program.Main: ERROR: AutomationTool terminated with exception:

Any idea what might cause this issue?

I deleted the Build, Intermediate and Saved folders and tried packaging the project again. But without any luck. So no solution yet...

I am able to package the project! by creating a new first person template, and migrating the assets from the other project into this new project, i only migrated the map and with that all the other assets, opened the new project, simply clicked on package project AND I WORKED!! [so after all a simple solution, but i thought the problem was much more complex. But in the end i just had to start with a clean new project in Unreal 4.10.1

Got same problem. Found that I am trying to build Shipping configuration with UBillboardComponent and PostEditPropertie function calls. So I put


directive around all my code caused error in Shipping configuration and that's it.
