Unreal incompatible with Visual Studio 2017 15.5.2
I am using UE4 4.18 with Visual Studio 2017.

Has anyone had this problem? Is there a fix? I don't really want to have to update to UE 4.19 unless I really have to.

However, I wanted to continue building my Unreal projects using v141 so I deleted the v140 tools. What I forgot to do was delete the
After doing so, I had to do some other things such as re-generating the visual studio files as well as cleaning the project before building again. Note that you may still have to right-click the project files and select "Reload Project".
