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"

HELP! - Pointing to cl.exe with Visual Studio 2017

So I recently started using UE4, and am trying to make a C++ game. I have Visual Studio 2017, and am aware of the location of cl.exe (I actually have 4 of them):

 "D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503\bin\Hostx[64 or 86]\x[64 or 86]\cl.exe".  

So I go into regedit to change the location to

 "D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503\bin\Hostx64\x64".  

However, Unreal Engine, obviously, cannot find cl.exe at that path + "\bin\cl.exe"

So my question is the following: which of the 4 cl.exes do I use for Unreal Engine, and is there a way to stop Unreal from adding "\bin\" to the path, or should I rename the folder (probably a bad idea).

Thanks in advance.
