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"

VS Code Build Error: Cant find Target Rules file

Trying to use VSCode with UE 4.19, made a C++ Blank Project, in the default "Documents/Unreal Projects/ " directory, named StateManagerProject.

In the debug menu running, StateManagerProjectEditor (Development), launch task. The error comes from the, StateManagerProjectEditor Win64 Development Build, pre launch task:

 Creating makefile for StateManagerProjectEditor (no existing makefile)
 ERROR: Couldnt find target rules file for target 'StateManagerProjectEditor' in
  rules assembly 'UE4Rules, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null
        Location: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.19\Engine\Intermediate\Build\B
        Target rules found:
         UE4Editor - C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.19\Engine\Source\UE4Editor.
         UE4Game - C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.19\Engine\Source\UE4Game.Targ
         UnrealHeaderTool - C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.19\Engine\Source\Pro
 The terminal process terminated with exit code: 5

EDIT: Tried making the same C++ Blank Project but changed the directory to "Documents/UnrealProjects/" without a space, and everything compiled as it should.

Fix: Remove Space from Unreal Projects?

Product Version: UE 4.19

I can confirm whitespaces are the issue. Tested this on 4.19.1 with a path including spaces (same error) and when removed, the tasks work as intended. The path is most likely being split at some point, I'll dig into it further.
