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"

VS2017 and UE4.18.3, setting up UnrealVS Extension /engine/extra/ directory can't be found

,I'm following directions from an online course to try to set up UE4 and Visual Studio. I'm currently trying to set up the UnrealVS extension, following directions on this link https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/UnrealVS

I actually am stuck at step one. I can't seem to find the UnrealVS.vsix program at all.

According to this video, I allegedly should be able to go into the epic games folder and see something different from what I currently see: https://youtu.be/jY99mx8PXIg?t=13m8s When I open my Epic Games folder, I only see two directories: Launcher, and DirectXRedistr. Going into the Launcher directory, I three other directories, one of which is entitled "Engine." If I go into Engine, I don't see any directory called "Extras." I see 6 other directories, "Binaries," "Content," "Config," "Plugins," "Programs," and "Shaders." If i click in any of these directories I don't seem to find anything resembling the UnrealVS directory.

(Overall, I'm using the following link to guide my set up of Visual Studio: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup)

I haven't really deviated much from directions. I downloaded Epic Games then downloaded Unreal Engine. If there's any info someone could offer me to help me solve this problem, I've been wanting to get started on developing for a long time.

I ran into the same problem I think. In C:\Program Files there should another Epic Games folder, click on that one and you should be able to locate the extension from there. Sorry if this is late.
