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"

Packaged Product Has Incorrect Name in Task Manager

I've recently updated a non c++ project from 4.7.6 to 4.17.1. Everything is going fine, but I've noticed that when I package the project, the exe's name gets displayed as "UE4Game" in the task manager. Is there any way to fix this? I've tried typing in the game's name under Settings>Description>About>Project Name. Still didn't change the name of the packaged exe in the task manager.

Product Version: UE 4.17

Well I did some testing, and as it turns out, the name that you type under Settings>Description>About>Project Name will indeed become the name of the project in the task manager IF the project is c++ based. My project is blueprint based, but I followed these steps to change it if anyone's interested: https://allarsblog.com/2015/11/04/converting-bp-project-to-cpp/

If all else fails you could always open the compiled executables in Visual studio and edit the details in there and hit save. But you'll have to redo the process each time you make a new build.
