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"

UE4 folder in Visual Studio missing all External Dependencies?

I've got the same project I'm opening on two computers (it's a dropbox folder). Both computers are running UE 4.17 and VS 2017 with the same set of installed components. It works perfectly on my desktop, but on my laptop I'm missing tons of dependencies and nothing builds.

The only difference I can see is that on my desktop, the External Dependencies folder contains tons of classes (https://i.imgur.com/gUxafVc.png) but on my laptop it's totally empty (https://i.imgur.com/6IAqxgJ.png).

Does anyone know why that folder might not be getting populated and what I can do to get those classes in there?

Product Version: UE 4.17

So, on further investigation it looks like the UE4 path is hardcoded somewhere in the Visual Studio solution setup... Which is a problem because I have it on F: drive on one computer, and C: drive on the other. I'm trying to see if there's any way to work around that.
