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"

midi device support plugin packaging fail

I have a problem packaging a project if the Midi Device Support plugin (as supplied with ue4) is enabled. I have tested by creating a very simple project which packages successfully but which then fails if I simply enable the Midi Device Support in that project without adding any blueprint nodes at all. My machine is running windows 7 with microsoft visual studio community 2017. Here is the log file

This seemed to indicated a possible lack of common tools for c++ so I tried on another machine which is running the visual c++ which downloads from your link which happens when packaging fails due to no installation which I think is the 2015 version. This machine also fails and here is its log.

I have the midi working in the viewport but no packaging. The midi functionality is crucial to what I would like to build so I hope that there is some way of solving this.

Cheers and thanks for a great program.

I have found the solution.

I uninstalled my current version of visual studio so that on the next package attempt I was prompted to download using visualstudio.exe.

I saved the visualstudio.exe to my machine and ran it. Then, when offered the choice between default and custom install I selected custom install and in there was an unticked option for 'common controls'.

I ticked that option and everything else too just to be on the safe side. After the long download and install and reboot my project now packages and runs.

I hope this helps.
