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"

Upgrading to 4.10, visual studio installation

Good day! I'm trying to move from 4.9 to 4.10, but when I try to install the new version of visual studio through the editor, either by opening an existing project, or through the install option when trying to create new c++ classes, it just pops up with a dialog box telling me about various console commands I can use (the one that pops up if you use !Help), and pressing OK just closes the dialog box. The setup does not pick up from there.

I assume the built in redistributable of visual studio sets up things neatly for me, so I would prefer to use it if possible instead of installing visual studio and setting it myself. (Especially since I'm not really familiar with it) What can I do?

Product Version: UE 4.10

Hello Graylord,

The editor doesn't include a full install of Visual Studio 2015. You'll need to download and install it from Microsoft at the following link:


Community would most likely be the best version for you but be sure to look over the terms of use to ensure this. Please let me know if you have any further issues after installing this.
