Failed to create C++ Project
Hi buddies! I'm experiencing problem, when I want to create a C++ based project the error message comes out : An error occurred while trying to generate project files.
Running C:/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/4.10/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="C:/Users/Fox/Documents/Unreal Projects/MyProject/MyProject.uproject" -game -rocket -progress -2015 Visual C++ 2015 toolchain does not appear to be correctly installed. Please verify that "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015" was selected when installing Visual Studio 2015. Discovering modules, targets and source code for game... UnrealBuildTool Exception: ERROR: Failed to find cl.exe in the default toolchain directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\Tools../../VC/bin/amd64\cl.exe. Please verify that "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015" was selected when installing Visual Studio 2015.
This error is due to the default settings of VS 2015 when installing. If you find Visual Studio 2015 in "Uninstall a program" you can choose to modify the installation. After choosing Modify You can expand the drop-down for Programming Languages as well as the drop-down for Visual C++. if you check the box next to Visual C++ it will select all of the items in this section, however the most important one is "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015". Make sure that this box is check and click update/next. Once VS has updated you should be able to create a code project.
