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"

Getting errors cannot find Unrealbuildtools

Hi,

I am using unreal engine since last 2 months at-least. I recently updated to 4.2 and have being using it.

Today while compiling my project in VS2013 i got an error

 1>------ Build started: Project: UnrealBuildTool, Configuration: Development Any CPU ------
 1>  UnrealBuildTool -> D:\UnrealEngine\Engine\Binaries\DotNET\UnrealBuildTool.exe
 2>------ Build started: Project: MyProject, Configuration: Development_Editor x64 ------
 2>  The system cannot find the file D:\UnrealEngine\Engine\Binaries\DotNET\UnrealBuildTool.exe.
 ========== Build: 2 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

I tried rebuilding UE4.sln and got the same error

 1>------ Build started: Project: UnrealBuildTool, Configuration: Development Any CPU ------
 1>  UnrealBuildTool -> D:\UnrealEngine\Engine\Binaries\DotNET\UnrealBuildTool.exe
 2>------ Build started: Project: UE4, Configuration: Development_Editor x64 ------
 2>  The system cannot find the file D:\UnrealEngine\Engine\Binaries\DotNET\UnrealBuildTool.exe.
 ========== Build: 2 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

So I tried generating the project files by GenerateProjectFiles.bat of my existing engine alt text

And at the end I tried creating a fresh installation and got this error alt text

What is wrong? I seems really frustrating.

I found the error. If any one is getting similar errors it is due to the temporary files that were generated. And can be solved by deleting them.

problem solved by reinstalling VS

I have the same issue. And reinstalling VS didn't solve it. Any other input?

Hi,

@envenger, I just wanted to confirm that you have been able to get past the original error.

@fdslk, are you seeing the original error message referring to the UnrealBuildTool, or the second error message in Visual Studio that envenger mentioned seeing after reinstalling VS?

Second one, but I managed to solve it. Most Anti-virus detect UnrealBuildTool as a virus, it's a total false-positive. Adding the folder to the exception list solved it.

Hi envenger,

It is possible that a .dll file may have become corrupted. Could you try downloading the dependencies for version 4.2 again and see if that helps this issue?

We received another report of the same issue from someone else. We will try to keep both posts updated, but I am linking to the other post just so you are aware of it.
