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 Build C++ Projects

I cannot build C++ projects, and I can't figure out why. When I create a new project it will start building the code then generate this error:

alt text

When I click "Open with Visual Studio", it attempts to do so then gives this error:

alt text

When I go to my library and try to open that project, I get this:

alt text

And then when I select "Yes" I get this:

Can anyone tell me what's causing this and how to resolve it? As it stands, I'm completely unable to make code-based projects. I've uninstalled and reinstalled both Visual Studio and Unreal, to no effect. Any suggestions?

Due to the error message in first picture, seems you need to install Windows SDK v8.1
