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"

I am currently running into that problem. Yes, it happened with the GenerateProjectFiles.bat. I have tried redownloading the dependencies, but that didn't help. I then opened up the \UnrealEngine\Engine\Source\Programs\UnrealBuildTool\UnrealBuildTool.csproj and tried to compile, and that error "Could not copy the file "obj\Debug\UnrealBuildTool.exe" because it was not found" came up. I am using the 4.3 branch.

EDIT: Solved by turning off my anti-virus.

Hi Kybe,

Did this error occur when you tried to run the GenerateProjectFiles.bat file after downloading the source code? Could you please try re-downloading the dependency files for the version you are trying to build to make sure none of those files were corrupted?
