Can't find a location for Visual Studio or Unreal Engine in file directory.
This is a very newbieish question, and I apologise. But I have googled everything I can think of and looked everywhere, and so I throw myself on your mercy.
Currently, when I try to open visual studio from Unreal Engine, it looks like this. http://imgur.com/gallery/FiCg5 The tab "generate Visual Studio Project" is faded, and I can't click it. I have no idea why.
I definitely have VS installed, because I've got it open right now, and I can find it seperately in my programs folder. I've followed the steps in this tutorial to setup the UnrealVS extension: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/UnrealVS/index.html. I've restarted Unreal Engine entirely. But nothing changes.
None of it seems to recognise that it's supposed to be part of Unreal Engine, and I can't figure out how to do so. Can someone help? Thanks in advance.

Hey Soft Singularity-
Looking at the screenshot provided, it appears you are using a blueprint based project. If this is the case, what you're seeing is expected. Blueprint project do not have code in them so they don't need a connection to Visual Studio. If you create a new project and select the "Code" heading when selecting a template, the grayed out option you pointed out will instead say "Open Visual Studio". This is also true if you add code to your current project, which will generate code files for the project.
