Compile error when tryin to package
Hi! I copied my project files (the entire folder) to my laptop where I mainly want them to be. I opened up the project wtith 4.11.2 and everyhting went okay. I didnt even have to fix VS 2015 to get it to build and run completely fine. But whenever I tried to compile C++ code (in the editor) or want to package my project I get unknown errors in my output log (in the editor). I closed the project and Unreal to check out what could've happened.
After the first try to package the project I wanted to open up the project again but without success. Suddenly, I got the error "Could not be compiled. Try rebuilding from source manually". Guess what? I cant build it manually either, I get lost of errors including "cant make windows.makefile", cant find "Projectname.dll", and "no such path exists". WTF is going on? I tried installing VS 2015 Community, but it didnt solve a single thing. Im starting to hate Unreal. How do I solve this? I dont understand anything.

It sounds like all the paths are messed up to me. I would give this a shot if you can.
Just blow away what you copied over previously Recopy everything over. Bring up Unreal, and then click on File (when looking at the level in the editor) Click on Refresh Visual Studio Project
I'm thinking that if the paths are all messed up, this should give you a decent shot at having that fixed automagically.
Then start up VS2015, and do a full Rebuild, forcing all the binaries, intermediates, etc to be deleted, and everything rebuilt.

Well I tried to open up the backup on my USB and now the compile button is gone and I cant open C++ files from the uproject. Oh my god I never had these problems on my first computer.
Also the only backup I have is this one, since my first computer broke down.

Well I could try that. Unreal really is ridicously buggy.....
