I have been trying to follow along with the Twin Stick shooter 5 base character class video. When creating a new c++ class I get this error.
Successfully added class 'MyCharacter2', however you must recompile the 'TwinStickShooter' module before it will appear in the Content Browser. Failed to generate project files.
Would you like to open the Output Log to see more details?
I also have another error when following along with 3rd Person Power-Up Game with C++ Videos When trying to create a new project with C++.
Running C:/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/4.10/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="C:/Users/Justin Michael Ortiz/Documents/Unreal Projects/MyProject4/MyProject4.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: Windows SDK v8.1 must be installed in order to build this target.
I'm new to Unreal and have no idea how to fix this. Please help!

Solved this problem.... All I needed to do was reinstall visual studio 2015. Everything works now.

This message typically means that the class was created as expected however the hot reload that the editor preforms automatically when a new class is added failed to complete. If you return to Visual Studio you should see the MyCharacter2 class you added. If you choose to build the project it should tell you if there are any errors that prevent it from compiling successfully. Fixing these compile issues will prevent the message from appearing when another new class is created.
