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"

Can't build from VS with my plugin

Hello everyone. I made simple plugin that contains two modules: SimplePlugin (Editor) and SimpleRuntime (Runtime).
Here is SimplePlugin module:

 class ISimplePluginModule : public IModuleInterface
     virtual bool IsNumberIsEqual42(int32 num) const = 0;
     static inline ISimplePluginModule & Get()
         return FModuleManager::LoadModuleChecked<ISimplePluginModule>("SimplePlugin");
     static inline bool IsAvailable()
         return FModuleManager::Get().IsModuleLoaded("SimplePlugin");

And in SimpleRuntime module i'm using this method:

 bool ISimpleRuntimeModule::IsNumberEquals42(int32 num) const
     if (ISimplePluginModule::IsAvailable())
         return ISimplePluginModule::Get().IsNumberIsEqual42(num);
     return false;

Then i export this plugin to my other project. I don't want to build this plugin each time, so i pack plugin with all folders: Binaries, Intermediate, Resources and Source (without Private folders).

Now everything works fine, i can include my module and use it with my interface. But i can't compile from Visual Studio, only from UE Editor. In Visual Studio i got:

 LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'path-to-project\Plugins\SimplePlugin\Intermediate\Build\Win64\UE4Editor\Development\UE4Editor-SimpleRuntime-5027.lib'
 ERROR : UBT error : Failed to produce item: path-to-project\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor-TestProject-2912.dll

Looks like in Visual Studio i'm trying to build again my plugin, but not in UE Editor.

How can i fix this? You can get my plugin from this link (compiled with UE 4.13.2)

Product Version: UE 4.13
