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"

Non-editor build cannot depend on non-redistributable modules.

Whenever I try to cook a standalone build of my game, yy log is full of messages like this and I have completely no idea what is causing it. I have an separate editor module because we've been extending the editor a little, but so far as much as I looked through the code, we never include Editor files in our main module. Only in the editor one, which is also added only in editor build, so what is going on?

Here is my Target.cs file

 using UnrealBuildTool;
 using System.Collections.Generic;
 public class Insection2DApproachTarget : TargetRules
     public Insection2DApproachTarget(TargetInfo Target) :
         Type = TargetType.Game;
         if (UEBuildConfiguration.bBuildEditor)
     // TargetRules interface.

Here is my game Build.cs file

 using UnrealBuildTool;
 public class Insection2DApproach : ModuleRules
     public Insection2DApproach(ReadOnlyTargetRules Target) : 
         PublicDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Core", "CoreUObject", "Engine", "InputCore", "Paper2D", "CableComponent" });
         PrivateDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] {  });
         // Uncomment if you are using Slate UI
         // PrivateDependencyModuleNames.AddRange(new string[] { "Slate", "SlateCore" });
         // Uncomment if you are using online features
         // PrivateDependencyModuleNames.Add("OnlineSubsystem");
         // To include OnlineSubsystemSteam, add it to the plugins section in your uproject file with the Enabled attribute set to true

What can possible cause this? My cook log is filled with these errors, some are a little different but they all say that I'm trying to build with modules that are non-redistributable. UE 4.17

Product Version: UE 4.17

I just want to add that there is probability that this started happening AFTER migration from 4.13 to 4.17, but I can't revert back to 4.13 at the moment to make sure.

We're experiencing the same problem, did you ever fix it?
