Windows Machine unable to use C++ since 4.12.5 Update
Since 4.12 creation of any C++ project (or attempt to "generate visual studio project files" on any project existing, or new) gives this error:
Please, what does this mean? Where is this originating and why? I have actually looked at the source for the unrealbuildtool but it is in no way clear.
Have installed, uninstalled...have tried new projects, old projects. Have read every forum article that touches on this issue and nothing seems to match.
Epic: I just need insite into the issue: you don't have to solve this for me, but I don't even know where to look. And as it stands, I have a completely useless game dev machine since this update and can not work. Have posted previously on this and gotten no answers or suggestions.
I am not near the ailing machine at moment, so will get this information when I can get to it again...but I can tell you from previous debugging where I have tried some of the above:
1) When intermediate files directory is recreated (after I delete it, I have tried that) there are no actual project files that get created. It DOES create Build, I think, and the intermediate directory...but there are no project files created anywhere in that subdirectory. I do get project creation and an intermediate directly, but it fails before creating any project files.
2) I know the source for the build tool is compiled, but I also have the sources present and I find it can be useful to edit the unrealbuilttool independently in order to troubleshoot.
I will try what you suggest when I get to the other machine.
