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"

Compile Fails when making C++ project.

I have just installed Unreal, and I had Visual Studios beforehand. I have installed VS Tools for Windows SDK and everything, but Compile fails and says: The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

Looks like you need the Windows SDK. Or, for some reason, the Windows SDK is not included in the project.
