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"

New Project Won't Compile

I am trying to make a new project with the Basic Code template in ue 4.14.2. When I create the project I get the following error:

The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

It doesn't appear that there is a UE4Editor-Steamworks_2017.dll file anywhere in my project. I have visual studio 2013 community installed on my machine, and when I build it in vs it doesn't seem to build. How do I fix this mess?

Product Version: UE 4.14

UPDATE: I installed visual studio 2015 community on my machine and now when I make a new project I get this error:

An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

 Running C:/Program Files/Epic Games/4.14/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe  -projectfiles -project="C:/Users/Austin/Documents/Unreal Projects/Steamworks_2017/Steamworks_2017.uproject" -game -rocket -progress
 Discovering modules, targets and source code for project...
 UnrealBuildTool Exception: ERROR: No 32-bit compiler toolchain found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\cl.exe

This appears to be a different problem, does anyone have any advice?

Did you install VS2015 AND chose c++ as language, or did you just set up VS2015?

Try to create a new C++ project in VS, if it tells you to install some c++ tools, do it.
