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"

Trouble Creating a Blank C++ code Project

Hello So I am trying to make a basic code starting project using UE 4.15.2 and am running into a problem. When I click create project this error message comes up: An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

Running G:/Epic Games/UE_4.15/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="G:/Epic Games/UE_4.15/Projects/TankGame2/TankGame2.uproject" -game -rocket -progress Discovering modules, targets and source code for project... ERROR: No 32-bit compiler toolchain found in E:\Computer Science HW\VC\bin\cl.exe

Which is odd. Because I removed the folder it is talking about in the error message (as it was empty) and it still does this. I recently installed Visual Studio 2017 and want to use that to do my programming in, but I can't generate this project at all to start with.

Now I don't know if there is anything weird with having multiple drives, but I did have VS 2015 on my E drive at some point. I need everything on my G drive now, including Unreal and VS 2017 (which they are).

Any help on this issue would be appreciated as I am not sure how to fix this.
