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"

Where are the Vault files stored in the new launcher for 4.2.1?

I,m trying to download Marketplace code, but it gets downloaded to a "Vault" somewhere. It then asks me to create a project, for which I can select a directory, but the VS generation fails because it can't find the "Source" directory.

Where is the "Vault"? Which directory? How can I change the directory of the "Vault"? I have a specific drive for development and don't want this cluttering my %APPDATA% or user directory.

Product Version: Not Selected

Hi Dmacesic,

You can find the Vault information in (where you're Engine is installed, typically "C")

X:/ Program Files / Unreal Engine > Launcher > VaultCache

You can also find more information about the new Launcher on our main page: UnrealEngine.com

You cannot change the directory of the Vault. It installs where you engine files are installed. When you created a new project using the Vault projects you can select where you want that project file to reside.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Thank you!

Thanks for the answer to my first question, but to the second: how do I change where the vault is? I really don't want it on my C drive.

Also, I still have the issue where I can't compile a created project, because there is no "Source" directory.

Hi dmacesic,

I've marked this as the correct answer to your question. If you're still having compile issues with your source directory make sure to post this as a separate question in the C++ section of the AnswerHub.

Thank you!

You can use Symbolic Link (SymLink) - either using shell or any available tool (that will just run the command in correct form for you)
