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 Not Compiling - Do I need admin rights?

I am an undergraduate researcher in a laboratory and am planning to switch from Unity to Unreal for simulating physical environments. I own Visual Studio Professional 2013, and Unreal Engine 4.14.3. I am already running into issues by just creating a new project. Here is my process for creating the new project:

-Open Unreal Project Browser

-C++ --> Basic Code. No Starter Content, Scalable 3D/2D quality, for Desktop/Console

-Wait for code to compile, and...

Compilation fails right off the bat. I've attached an image (and text) of the compilation failure. Note: I do not have admin privileges on this computer (those privileges are given only to the supervisor and one or two other engineers). Do I need local admin for my machine to compile Unreal code and to build games?
