How to fix: Could not find code error
I just downloaded unreal engine on to 2 of my machines. I wanted to try out writing a plugin so I found a live stream video where the programmer shows the widget reflector. When I click a code file it says "failed to find code file: whateverdirectoryishere." The directory is nonsense and is pointing to a thumb drive. I have this exact issue on both computers. I tried reinstalling on one machine and it did nothing. I can navigate the source code manually inside visual studio but the widget reflector is linking somewhere else.
How can I change the directory the widget reflector is looking for the source code in?

I run into the same problem and I think this function only works if you had build the engine from source because the path you get is the same I get and it seems to be the original build path the engine was built at Epic and its somehow hardwired into the code.
It is annoying that you even can't copy the path and I found no other solution to this then to remember the file name and manually open it.
