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"

Recieving Compiling Error When Trying to Generate C++ Classes

Hi, recently I decided to teach myself how to use Unreal Engine. I already had Visual Studio 2017 installed. After installing the unreal editor I installed the unreal engine using the visual studio installer. I am able to generate c++ files for my unreal project however when in unreal if I attempt to create new C++ files linked with the project it gives me an error and the log reads

alt text

It then creates the file I specified however refuses to show said file in the Unreal Editor. Please help. I cannot add C++ components to objects until this is fixed.

Product Version: UE 4.18

Double check that you have all the necessary VS components installed, not just UE4 support, but also C++ etc. If you already had VS installed you should rerun the configuration tool and add what may be missing.

Here is the official document you should refer to: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/

I had everything needed installed. I tried again in a basic c++ project and it worked however when I tried to make a 2nd c++ class it failed and resulted in an error once again.

Maybe it is a different one this time. A namespace conflict maybe?
