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"

You have a missing or corrupted file. You're going to either have to reverify your binary version of the engine, or recompile your source version.

Create a new project and then transferred all the files to the new project worked well :) thanks @SteffM

This happens when there is a compile error in your source code. Take a look in the logs to figure out where the error occurs.

You can find the visual studio project file in your project directory, you also may need to regenerate them if you messed something up in your code, right click on the .uproject file, there you can find the option for "Generate Visual Studio project files"

Try delete the Intermediate folder, maybe even the Binaries and the Saved folder too.

If that doesnt help you could try removing or renaming the Source folder and start your project without code files. Then add a new C++ so Unreal creates new Project Files. If that works you could manually add you old source files to the project.

i'll make a backup and try this

did not work :/

Have you tried creating an new project, if that doesnt work either something is broke with your unreal installation.

If creating a new project works, than you could copy everything from your old, broken, project over to the new one.
