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"

I can't use C++ with Unreal 4.16.2 (No compiler was found)

Hi, I've recently been trying to get Unreal to work with C++ but for whatever reason, it doesn't want to recognise my copy of Visual Studio 2017 on my PC.

This is the error I get every time: alt text

I have attempted uninstalling both Unreal and Visual Studio 2017, in multiple different ways (install Unreal, then Visual Studio through the prompt above and also install Visual Studio with the Unreal installer) but to no avail.

Has anyone had this issue and solved it or does anyone have any idea what I could do to fix it?

Product Version: UE 4.16

Are you using 2017 community or preview? I've seen similar bug reports about 2017 problems.

I personally use 2015 still, and that is working for me.

I have 2017 Community. Tried to download 2015 instead but cannot find a download link for it at all.

That should work.

Here's older downloads of VS.
