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"

Unable to regenerate project files. No context menu options on uproject files

I am using the source built version of UE 4 (4.11). I am unable to restore / add the context menu items for Unreal Engine. Because of this I am unable to regenerate the project files in the game directory. Where the Unreal Engine installation is the GenerateProjectFiles.bat works for the engine installation directory. However that file does nothing for the actual game project that needs its files regenerated. Because of this I believe i haven't been able to generate the dedicated server .exe that I have been trying to setup recently. I have tried using the UnrealVersionSelector-Win64-Shipping.exe file but this does not add the context menus back. I have tried installing the non source version as well to no avail. Any help anyone could give me on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.11

Maybe this will help someone else. For whatever reason I couldn't get the context menus back but if you use this console command it will allow you to generate project files in your games directory

Here is an example: "D:\UnrealEngine\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UnrealVersionSelector-Win64-Shipping.exe" /projectfiles "D:\MyProject4\MyProject4\MyProject4.uproject"
