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"

Can't create C++ Basic Code in Unreal Engine

When I attempt to create a C++ Basic Code project in Unreal Engine without using starter content, it gives me this error: alt text

An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

Running D:/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/Paragon/UE_4.19/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="D:/Users/Jordan/Desktop/Coding/Udemy C++ Course/Unreal Engine/Unreal Projects/MyProject/MyProject.uproject" -game -rocket -progress Discovering modules, targets and source code for project...  WARNING: Exception while generating include data for UE4Editor: Windows SDK v8.1 must be installed in order to build this target. Binding IntelliSense data... 0%@progress 'Binding IntelliSense data...' 50%  WARNING: Exception while generating include data for MyProjectEditor: Windows SDK v8.1 must be installed in order to build this target. Binding IntelliSense data... 50%@progress 'Binding IntelliSense data...' 100% ERROR: UnrealBuildTool Exception: Windows SDK v8.1 must be installed in order to build this target.

Now, I have tried to uninstall Unreal Engine and SDK and reinstall, it didn't work. I have attempted to install SDK v8.1 but it doesn't work for me, it just tells me to find the installer and install it but when I do that it gives me the same message telling me to install it.

Looks like you just need to install the proper VS files: https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/community/

Yeah that was the issue. I couldn't finish the installation process because my C drive was full and according to my friend, I have to install it on all drives to use VS. Anyway, I did that but I have to make it to where Unreal Engine uses VS 2017, he said that my version requires 2017 version. I went in my folder and located where it is launching from and I selecting open with the 2017 version but it still is giving me the error.
