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"

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

Please help! I'm new to UE4, I downloaded a course from Udemy and followed the download instructions. I have visual studios 2017 with the windows 10 and 8.1 SDKs (86 & 64) and UE4 4.13.3.When I try to make a template in C++ blank I keep getting this error. It does not occur when I use a regular blueprint. I've tried uninstalling and downloading both programs and keep receiving the same error message.

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

  • open your visual studio installer, choose Modify, choose Individual Components, choose Unreal Engine Installer under "Games and Graphics" section. Install this component should solve your problems.
