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"

Unreal Engine Doesn't Create C++ Project

Everything works until I create a C++ project. The launcher doesn't complain about a lack of IDE (I have VS17), and no other errors/warnings that I notice. However, when I try to make a project, it crashes & gives me this error:

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

Running E:/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/UE_4.16/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe MyProject2 Development Win64 -project="E:/UnrealEngine/Projects/MyProject2/MyProject2.uproject" -editorrecompile -progress -NoHotReloadFromIDE Performing full C++ include scan (building a new target) Creating makefile for MyProject2 (no existing makefile) @progress push 5% Parsing headers for MyProject2Editor Running UnrealHeaderTool "E:\UnrealEngine\Projects\MyProject2\MyProject2.uproject" "E:\UnrealEngine\Projects\MyProject2\Intermediate\Build\Win64\MyProject2Editor\Development\MyProject2Editor.uhtmanifest" -LogCmds="loginit warning, logexit warning, logdatabase error" -Unattended -WarningsAsErrors -installed Reflection code generated for MyProject2Editor in 8.9533894 seconds @progress pop ERROR: No 32-bit compiler toolchain found in E:\VisualStudio\VC\bin\cl.exe

If anyone could help, that would be delightful. Thanks and have a good evening.

You don't have C++ toolchain installed in you VS installation, since VS2015 you need to turn it on manually (because M$ wants you to use C# insted ;p) during instalation. Do to Control Panel/Programs and there edit you VS installation and add C++ support.

Thanks for your quick answer! However I believe I already do have C++ support installed. I have three main selections installed: Universal Windows Platform Development Desktop Development with C++ and Game Development with C++. Is there anything else you can see, or am I missing a specific download? I'm sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Can you create Win32 c++ application with visual studio? If you can not, the visual studio will tell you what you need to install

Yes, I can create a Win32 project :/.

I installed both of these things, but it still seems to not work.

can you take screenshots for your "visual studio installer" under components tab and your /bin directory?

Yeah, here is the basic part of it: visual studio installer If you want to see the rest, just tell me. There's also "Unreal Engine Installer, Windows 8.1 SDK, C++/CLI Support, and VC++ 2015.3 v140 toolset (x86,x64)" installed on the right. As for the bin directory, I suck at computers, I'm only good at programming, (ironic, right?) so you'll need to be more specific on where I can find it.
