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"

How to regenerate the .sln file?

Because right click on the uproject and regenerating the Visual Studio files from there does not create the .sln file in 4.18.1 and this documentation is outdated: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/UnrealBuildSystem/ProjectFileGenerator/ (because it no longer has that bat-file).

Product Version: UE 4.18

Hey there, make sure you've followed the steps to install Visual Studio 2017 with support for Unreal Engine 4 (https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/#visualstudio2017users), you might be missing something !

Thanks. Apparently the SDK 8.1 was missing. Oddly enough UE4 closes the output window from generating the project files (so you do not see any errors). It contained an error about a missing SDK 8.1. Screenshotting/recording it is a must... Epic should really change that.

I installed the Windows SDK 8.1 separately from a file (not from the Visual Studio setup) and also the SDK 10.x apparently that doesn't count for UE4 so I went to add/remove programs > Visual Studio 2017 and added the SDK 8.1 from there as shown in your link and now it generates.
