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 can I fix this UBT Error?

I have been using UE4 for a couple of days now with the "Blueprints" and now working towards the "C++". However, whenever I try to make a new project in the C++ section I get this error:

Running D:/UnrealEngine/Epic Games/UE_4.18/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe MyProject Development Win64 -project="D:/UnrealEngine/Unreal Projects/MyProject/MyProject.uproject" -editorrecompile -progress -NoHotReloadFromIDE Creating makefile for MyProject (no existing makefile) Performing full C++ include scan (no include cache file) @progress push 5% Parsing headers for MyProjectEditor Running UnrealHeaderTool "D:\UnrealEngine\Unreal Projects\MyProject\MyProject.uproject" "D:\UnrealEngine\Unreal Projects\MyProject\Intermediate\Build\Win64\MyProjectEditor\Development\MyProjectEditor.uhtmanifest" -LogCmds="loginit warning, logexit warning, logdatabase error" -Unattended -WarningsAsErrors -installed Reflection code generated for MyProjectEditor in 9.2743323 seconds @progress pop Performing 9 actions (4 in parallel) [2/9] Resource ModuleVersionResource.rc.inl [3/9] Resource PCLaunch.rc cl : Command line warning D9002 : ignoring unknown option '/source-charset:utf-8' cl : Command line warning D9002 : ignoring unknown option '/execution-charset:utf-8' SharedPCH.Engine.cpp d:\unrealengine\epic games\ue_4.18\engine\source\runtime\core\public\Windows/WindowsPlatformCompilerSetup.h(19): error C2338: Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 is required to compile on Windows (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691129) ERROR: UBT ERROR: Failed to produce item: D:\UnrealEngine\Unreal Projects\MyProject\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor-MyProject.dll Total build time: 27.60 seconds (Local executor: 0.00 seconds)

Any assistance in fixing this issue would be greatly appreciated.

It says "Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 is required to compile on Windows".

Try installing that. If you can't get anywhere I suggest uninstalling UE4 and VS and then following an install guide.

Side note: some say to use 2017 but I use 2015 (with UE-4.18.1) so you can stick with that if you prefer.

Thank you for the help! I actually had got it to work shortly after posting this. I thought my VS2015 was on Update 3 but it was not.
