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"

UE makes .exe file instead of .dll

My UE started doing something strange. It makes .exe file instead of dll file every time I try to compile - even from VS directly. I've clead Binary, Intermediate and Saved folders and it's still same. My colleagues working on the same project don't have this problem. How can I change it? I'm unable to run the project at all.

Hey Krzysiek_TATE,

What build configuration are you using in Visual Studio? Also, which version are you currently working in?

I've been actualy trying every single one. I'm on Visual Studio 2015. It's same on QT Creator which worked perfectly for me before. It's thesame when double clicking on .uproject file. It tells me that there is no .dll file and if I want him to build it and then it makes an .exe file, and says that .dll couldn't be done. There is nothing special in my .uproject file. And my mates have thesame. I can't work :/

Do me a favor and try building the project in Visual Studio. Does the build complete successfully?

If there are any build errors, please post them here so I can take a look at them.

It seems that I've removed default, almost empty PROJECTNAMEEditor.target.cs. After recovering it, everything is back to normal.
