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"

Unable to create a C++ Project in UE 4.19 with Windows SDK 10 loaded

Hi,

I'm getting the following message when trying to create a new FPS game in UE 4.19. It indicates I need to have Windows SDK 8.1.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.................. Eric

yes, that SDK is used for the c++ compiling (as you may have guessed) launch the VS installer program (make sure normal VS is closed) and down load that particular sdk. see bellow for details.

Hey GIGA - thanks for your feedback. I got this running. I thought all you needed to do was download the gaming module in VS. I didn't know you had to select the additional Unreal Engine features. Thanks again....... Eric
