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"

[BUG] LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'libsndfile-1.lib'

Hi, when trying to Package a project in Developemnt configuration (Win 64Bits) a Fatal error occurs:

LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'libsndfile-1.lib'

After some research:

  • Make the project clean (removing Binaries/Intermediate and Regenerate VS files) , Rebuilding it in Development Editor configuration does not help.

  • I don't have any "AdditionalDependencies" in my UProject except "Engine".

  • No webbrowser used anywhere or other Experimental UE4 things.

  • Disabling plugins (Substance) does not help.


Thanks for any help!

Product Version: UE 4.13

Hello Enol,

Does this only occur in this particular project or any project you try to package? If it still occurs in a brand new project, can you ensure that the plugin is being completely disabled? You can do this by right-clicking the .uproject file for the project and setting it to not being enabled from there, regenerate the project files, rebuild, and then try to package.

We haven't heard from you in a while, Enol, Did you ever get to try what I suggested? If so, what were the results? Are you still experiencing this issue? In the meantime, I'll be marking this as resolved for tracking purposes.

You guys seem to be pretty quick to mark issues as resolved (I guess you guys really have a lot of questions to keep track of.) I am actually experiencing this exact issue using 4.13.2 with a migrated project from an earlier engine version (4.11 I think) and I cannot seem to build -- encountering the same error as Enol. I can try to provide more info if needed.

Hello DesertEagle_PWN,

It would be helpful if you could provide the same information I requested from Enol.
