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 get Unreal to work and can't un-install it

Installed Unreal on Windows 8 today and can't initialise even an empty project because of this error:

An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

Running C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.20/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="C:/Users/Me/Documents/Unreal Projects/MyProject/MyProject.uproject" -game -rocket -progress Discovering modules, targets and source code for project...  WARNING: Exception while generating include data for UE4Editor: Visual Studio 2017 requires the Universal CRT to be installed. Binding IntelliSense data... 0%@progress 'Binding IntelliSense data...' 50%  WARNING: Exception while generating include data for MyProjectEditor: Visual Studio 2017 requires the Universal CRT to be installed. Binding IntelliSense data... 50%@progress 'Binding IntelliSense data...' 100% ERROR: UnrealBuildTool Exception: Visual Studio 2017 requires the Universal CRT to be installed.

I can't un-install Unreal because whenever I try it says it can't because Unreal is running even though the Task Manager assures me it isn't.

Can anyone help me either get Unreal to work or get it off my hard drive where it is taking up a lot of space. Huge thanks in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.20

I uninstalled version 4.20 from the Launcher and installed version 4.19, when I run 4.19 it says "UE4Editor exe - No disc Please insert a disc into drive E"

Do ANY versions of Unreal work?
