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 upgrade 4.18.3 project to 4.19.2

Hey Everyone, I'm having some issues upgrading my C++ project from UE4.18.3 to 4.19.2

I already tried rebuilding the solution and regenerating visual studio files. I also tried all of the steps here to no avail: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/771273/having-issues-converting-code-projects-from-4183-t.html

This is the error I'm getting when I try to upgrade from the unreal engine launcher: Project files could not be generated. Log output:

 Running G:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.19/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe  -projectfiles -project="G:/Documents/PunchBombBackup/2018-04-07/PunchBomb 4.19/PunchBomb.uproject" -game -rocket -progress
 Discovering modules, targets and source code for project...
 While compiling G:\Documents\PunchBombBackup\2018-04-07\PunchBomb 4.19\Intermediate\Build\BuildRules\PunchBombModuleRules.dll:
 ERROR: g:\Documents\PunchBombBackup\2018-04-07\PunchBomb 4.19\Source\PunchBomb.Target.cs(8,9) : error CS1729: 'UnrealBuildTool.TargetRules' does not contain a constructor that takes 0 arguments
 ERROR: g:\Documents\PunchBombBackup\2018-04-07\PunchBomb 4.19\Source\PunchBombEditor.Target.cs(8,9) : error CS1729: 'UnrealBuildTool.TargetRules' does not contain a constructor that takes 0 arguments
 ERROR: UnrealBuildTool Exception: Unable to compile source files.

And this is the error I'm getting when trying to convert by right clicking the unreal project file:

 Running G:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.19/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe  -projectfiles -project="G:/Documents/PunchBombBackup/2018-05-03/PunchBomb 4.18/PunchBomb.uproject" -game -rocket -progress

           at System.Reflection.MethodBase.Invoke(Object obj, Object[] parameters)
           at UnrealBuildTool.RulesAssembly.CreateTargetRulesInstance(String TypeName, TargetInfo TargetInfo)

Anyone run into anything similar or have an idea on how to fix it? I need to upgrade to get the project working properly on Windows Mixed Reality (doesn't play nicely with SteamVR in 4.18.3 apparently)

Product Version: UE 4.19
