Missing 'Generate Visual Studio Project Files' in context menu
I'm having issues with getting the 'Generate Visual Studio Project Files' to appear and can't compile my project.
I know there are a few posts on this but I'm sure I have gone through them all and tried all the various solutions several times.
I've installed both UE 4.15 & UE 4.12. I've tried my hand at several solutions (this post http://www.davidmoore.info/blog/2014/09/05/fix-the-missing-right-click-menu-for-unreal-engine-projects-uproject/) setting the default app (https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/450381/generate-visual-studio-project-files-didnt-show-up.html) and other suggestions but I have had no luck.
If I open my Visual Studio project I can see that all the Build commands are pointing to incorrect Unreal location. The project has been copied from another PC which has UE4 in different location.
I cannot find the 'UnrealVersionSelector' in the Binaries 64 folder as some have suggested. I have used the Epic Games launcher to install the different versions of Unreal. As I have said, uninstalling all traces of Epic Games and re-installing hasn't helped. Tried installing the Launcher in different location than x86 but hasn't helped.
If I use the bat file has shown here 'http://www.davidmoore.info/blog/2014/09/05/fix-the-missing-right-click-menu-for-unreal-engine-projects-uproject/' I get an 'Can't find the Unreal Engine' error although both 4.15 & 4.12 are installed.
I have also downloaded the source from .git as some have suggested as tried to use the 'UnrealVersionSelector-Win64-Shipping' but get an 'Invalid Command Line' error. I have tried the various Setup.bat shipped with the source.
As you can see I've been trying for awhile to fix this issue had very frustrated to not have my project building in VS. Help on this and any other ideas on what to try would be very, very helpful.

OK thank you to @MadSystem for pointing me in the right direction. Checking out this thread: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?109862-Association-uproject-unreal-are-broken
As suggested in the bottom of the thread I manually copied the 'UnrealVersionSelector.exe' from 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64' to the engine binaries folder: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.15\Engine\Binaries\Win64'
Then set the uproject file to associate with the newly placed 'UnrealVersionSelector'. The right-click menu came back and I can finally rebuild Visual Studio project files. Yay!

Im having a similar issue. I did install Windows 10 3 days and after that I also reinstalled the epic game laucher. Since then I have no right-click-context menu for .uproject files anymore.

I did not copy any files.
I just set the file association of the ".uproject" file to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UnrealVersionSelector.exe" by following these steps:
