Compiling Nvidia Physx Flex 4.15
I've been trying for days days to compile the Physx samples of Nvidia for UE4 , the ones on Github. I failed over and over , and I'm so close but I don't know what is wrong.
I've never compiled the engine before, I never used github until I discovered Nvidida Gameworks..
These were my steps:
The error I get goes like this:
Error Failed to produce item: C:\Program Files\UnrealEngine-FleX-4.15.0\Engine\Intermediate\Build\Win64\ShaderCompileWorker\Development\ShaderCompileWorker-Core.lib ShaderCompileWorker C:\Program Files\UnrealEngine-FleX-4.15.0\Engine\Intermediate\ProjectFiles\ERROR 1
Error Failed to produce item: C:\Program Files\UnrealEngine-FleX-4.15.0\Engine\Intermediate\Build\Win64\UnrealHeaderTool\Development\UnrealHeaderTool-Core.lib UE4 C:\Program Files\UnrealEngine-FleX-4.15.0\Engine\Intermediate\ProjectFiles\ERROR 1
It seems like there is one include file (nldef.h) missing in the windows 8.1 SDK the Visual studio can't find. But it's also not there.
UPDATE: I REINSTALLED THE WINDOWS SDK AND IT WORKED but now there is another error showing up (so unexpected) :
New Error Error LNK1181 cannot open input file 'GFSDK_SSAO_D3D11.win64.lib' ShaderCompileWorker C:\Users\Selim\Desktop\UnrealEngine\Engine\Intermediate\ProjectFiles\LINK 1

I tried to compile the Engine alot of times , I also saw the updates recently made, which i also tried to compile: - Flex for UE4.15 - Cataclysm demo for UE4.15 (updated 3 days ago) - List item
I tried them all but I always get stuck at the visual studio part of the compilation. There always an error popping up. I'm very grateful for any help.
Unfortunately we do not provide official support for the various Nvidia technologies that they have made available for use in Unreal Engine 4. If you need any help with these technologies specifically, there is a forum thread dedicated to working with them that is handled by the Unreal Engine community, as well as the Issues page on Nvidia's custom fork of the Engine.
