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"

GenerateProjectFiles command not showing error dialog

As a result of some changes in the UBT code, it seems that the right-click, generate project files command will no longer (under some circumstances anyway) display a dialog on failure, but just finish without any feedback about why they couldn't be generated.

In particular, I'm getting this when trying to generate 4.16 project files for a project which has dependencies on plugins which I do not yet have installed for 4.16. By debugging I've found the output error is

ERROR: Couldn't find module rules file for module ''.

I believe this should be generating an error dialog, but is not doing on 4.16. This is liable to lead to a lot of confusion with updating of projects if not fixed soon.

Product Version: UE 4.16

Hello kamrann,

I understand that it has been a while since you originally reported this. Are you still experiencing this issue? If so, I'll be happy to investigate this issue with you. I tried reproducing this myself (just causing it to fail to generate project files by setting the Intermediates folder to Read-Only) and I'm given an error dialogue.
