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 have two version of VS - 2015, 2017, how can I build/generate vs solution from uproject?

I have both VS versions installed on my PC. I can generate UE4 2017 solution by simply using the command prompt like this "GenerateProjectFiles.bat - 2017". I can successfully build UE4.sln using 2017 now. However when I try to create a C++ project using this engine or I try to do right click and generate VS files, my solution projects looks like this : alt text

What happens now is if I try to build, it is going to rebuild the engine with 2015 that is not what I want. How can I make the VS2017 as the default MS build environment without uninstalling VS2015 ?

I know it must be default MS build path issue, but some help and pointers in direction would be helpful.

Product Version: UE 4.17

I looked at what it was doing when I run .uproject file.

So instead of this Running D:/GitHub/UnrealEngine/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="F:/UE4-OffsetTurretRotation/TurretRotation.uproject" -game -engine -progress Discovering modules, targets and source code for project...

I changed it to this: D:/GitHub/UnrealEngine/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -2017 -projectfiles -project="F:/UE4-OffsetTurretRotation/TurretRotation.uproject" -game -engine -progress

I did this on VS 2017 command prompt manually, I still don't know to get it done automatically.
