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"

How to fix "-waitmutex exited with code 5Please verify that you have sufficient rights to run this command" error?

Hi I am trying to build just one of the basic start templates (C++ Top-Down) in UE4. The solution will only build about 40% of the time (after a full Rebuild) the rest of the time I get:

"AITEditor Win64 Development "C:\AIT\AIT.uproject" -waitmutex" exited with code 5. Please verify that you have sufficient rights to run this command."

I have not added/removed any code or game objects at this point, this has happened with every single project I have created both at my Office and at Home.

The "sufficient rights" led me to believe it was a User Profile issue but I am an administrator on both of these machines, unless it's trying to run Build.bat with some other profile? But then why would it be such an intermittent issue?

Could anybody provide any insight? I was hoping to use UE4 to create some AI Examples for my students next year but if I can't get the basics working that won't be an option.

Many thanks, Will

Run Visual Studio as Admin, make sure you don´t have a Game Started inside the Editor.

You can also try to delete your Intermediate folder

Hi Nachtmahr, thanks for your response. I changed Compatability Settings for Visual Studio to always "Run As Administrator".

There is no game running for certain, and while I appreciate the suggestion about deleting the Intermediate folder this is happening literally every few minutes. It would not be feasible for me to delete the folder every time this happens.

It's looking like I may have to scrap UE4 and just write all my stuff from scratch :-(
