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"

Your problem is with building out UE4, building the game, or compiling in Unreal Editor?

Having the same issue. VS 15' and 17' are both installed (with the proper C++ plugins), however UE 4.7.6 refuses to recognize they are installed and asks me to install VS 13'

I figured out my issue, could be yours as well.

By default Epic Games Launcher installs UE 4.7.6, which doesn't recognize VS 15' or 17'. In the launcher, go to Library> Add versions> 4.16.1. This is the latest version UE and will recognize VS 15 and or 17.

If you uninstall other Visual Studio versions and you open GenerateProjectFiles.bat, it will recognize VS2017 automatically.
