Is there a way to trigger a cmd prompt or terminal screen from the underlying OS
I've started looking at the Unreal documentation here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Core/GenericPlatform/FGenericPlatformProcess/CreateProc/index.html
But if you go back several links to the "API reference" it states that it is an early work in progress or might have missing/out-of-date information.
I've looked through the list of commands using the tilde key "~" within the Unreal editor to see if there was something there and nothing jumped out at me.
Anyone have any luck with this and feel like walking a novice through it? Thank you for your time!!
Okay so I'll post how I resolved this and hope for other comments. To be honest I was surprised that this has had no replies. First and foremost my solution requires some other technologies to integrate this in game but they are free and easy to setup. First I setup an Apache Guacamole server (http://guacamole.incubator.apache.org/) this is a remote desktop gateway that supports VNC, SSH, and RDP over HTML so all you need is a browser. Utilizing UE4's browser plugin once the Apache server was up and configured, I stood up one Ubuntu 14.04 box and one W2k12 box and just used this tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODvbDVZ2AOc) and created an in game browser widget. Then once the player overlaps a trigger box it launches the browser widget and based on the credentials passed either displays the linux box or the windows box.
