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"

No compiler was found. In order to use a C++ template, you must first install Visual Studio 2013.

Hi!

I've been trying to create my own sidescroller game. However, I'm stuck at the very beginning.. I want to bind Visual Studio 2015 with UE4, but all the time I want to create a New Project with source code I keep getting message:

"No compiler was found. In order to use a C++ template, you must first install Visual Studio 2013." alt text

I don' t want to use Visual Studio 2013 as I have used Visual Studio 2015 for programming quite long already.. I've tried many things but I can' t find the way how to fix this problem..

I've ran UnrealVS.vsix, which in my mind should be the extension for Visual Studio. alt text

Product Version: UE 4.8

Hello Rasponien,

Visual Studio 2015 was not supported with Unreal until 4.10, which would explain the error message that you are seeing.

Here is the Setting Up Visual Studio documentation for reference: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/

Let me know if you have any additional questions regarding this issue.

Have a great day
