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"

Unable to create a C++ project

Hi there,

I'm trying to create a simple C++ Basic Code project within UE4.17 and I'm getting the following error:

The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

Running C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.17/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe RoomEscape Development Win64 -project="C:/Users/Gustavo/Documents/Unreal Projects/RoomEscape/RoomEscape.uproject" -editorrecompile -progress -NoHotReloadFromIDE Creating makefile for RoomEscape (no existing makefile) Performing full C++ include scan (no include cache file) @progress push 5% Parsing headers for RoomEscapeEditor Running UnrealHeaderTool "C:\Users\Gustavo\Documents\Unreal Projects\RoomEscape\RoomEscape.uproject" "C:\Users\Gustavo\Documents\Unreal Projects\RoomEscape\Intermediate\Build\Win64\RoomEscapeEditor\Development\RoomEscapeEditor.uhtmanifest" -LogCmds="loginit warning, logexit warning, logdatabase error" -Unattended -WarningsAsErrors -installed Reflection code generated for RoomEscapeEditor in 9,7961486 seconds @progress pop ERROR: No 32-bit compiler toolchain found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\cl.exe

When I click at "open in Visual Studio", it says:

Could not edit the code editing IDE. C:/Users/Gustavo/Documents/Unreal Projects/RoomEscape2/RoomEscape2.sln could not be found.

I'm just a beginner and this would be my first project in UE4 as I'm still learning C++. What should I do?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Product Version: UE 4.17

Hi! I did a quick Google search for that error, and it seems that you don't have the C++ build tools installed for Visual Studio. You can download them here. Let me know if it persists, and I'll try my best to help out. :)
