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"

UE4 Editor crash during launch

The editor crash every time I try to launch it. I try installing the older version 4.11.2 and 4.10.4, but they both crash too. I did a clean reinstall but same result. I didn't have any problem launching the editor a while back after I did a reformat on my PC.

Hi Ruu Chiengu,

It appears the crash is occurring when it gets to the XAudio2_7.dll. A similar issue was resolved on the following post:

Unreal Engine 4.8 doesn't produce any sound

by installing: DirectX End-User Runtimes

I suspect this may have been corrupted when you reformatted your PC. Try this and let us know if it does not resolve your issue.

Apparently installing DirectX End-User Runtimes didn't overwrite the corrupted file. I had to manually delete the XAudio2_7.dll and reinstall it. It WORK! Thank you Steve.
