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"

Can't launch my project, UE4Game.pdb not found.

Hey there,

I'm currently working on my project "BASimulation", everything went fine untill today. I continued working on the university computer and overwrode my project with the newer version of it.

The UE4 is installed on E: and my project is on C:.

But now I can't launch the project (I only can use "play").


LogPlayLevel: InternalUtils.SafeCopyFile: WARNING: SafeCopyFile Exception was Exception in mscorlib: Die Datei "E:\EpicGames\EpicGames\4.10\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Game.pdb" konnte nicht gefunden werden.

I even tried to reinstall the engine.

I'll be really thankful for a working solution.

Product Version: UE 4.10

Having same issue. To upgrade to 4.10.3 I had to uninstalled 4.10.2 due to a lack of space on a disk volume. After reinstalling I cannot launch my projects. I get the warning messages like "Epic Games\4.10\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Game.pdb".

I too have reinstalled twice to no avail.

I'm having the exact same problem. I'll try and download the Symbols for Debugging, but it's a freaking 8GB download that shouldn't be necessary! Thanks, anyway.

I resolved this by downloading the Editor Symbols for Debugging. After that the launch worked.

Hi, where can I download editor sumbols?

In the launcher, right click on the engine and select "options". It'll show you some selection boxes, among which you'll find the Editor Symbols for Debugging. Good luck!

If you're still experiencing complications after downloading the Editor Symbols for Debugging, please submit a new thread to AnswerHub because that means your troubles with the engine aren't the same as Anuki's.
