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"

Cannot Create a new C++ project Windows 10

After installing Unreal and Visual studio, I tried creating a new project. It can launch/create a new blueprint project just fine, but it cannot make a new C++ project. It gets to the point of "compiling source code" and then crashes with this:

The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

Can anyone provide any insight into the why this is happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Turns out I'm dumb. I needed the Windows 8.1 SDK. Hope this can help anyone else with the same issue.
