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"

UnrealBuildTool: LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'zlibstatic.lib'

Hello, I try to packaging my project for Windows (64-bit) but It's not working. In the Output Log there is written that: "LNK1181: cannot open input file 'zlibstatic.lib'" I'm compiled my c++ project with Visual Studio 2013.

I have tried all the solutions online but nothing works. Please help me!!

Product Version: UE 4.15

Hey Nick84,

Try installing Visual Studio 2015 (do not install Visual Studio 2013), and ensure that you've installed the C++ content for VS 2015 as well. Once you have this installed, give packaging another shot and provide your full output log if it still fails.

Have a great day
