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"

How do I get Unreal 4 to compile?

I downloaded Unreal 4 recently to take part in a series of video lectures, but every time I try to load up the engine and create a new project it fails to compile. I have included a picture showing what happens immediately after I click create project and wait through a couple of loading bars. I have already deleted and redownloaded Unreal 4 a couple times and in different places in my file hierarchy with no results. I tried following the path D:\Omni\UE_4.20\Engine\Programs\CrashReportClient to see if I could find a crash report of some sort but the folder was empty. If anyone could offer any advice on how to resolve the matter, or figure out what is going wrong, I would greatly appreciate it.

Yeah, i've seen this before. I got an answer to this on another post.

this is the original post: yes, that SDK is used for the c++ compiling (as you may have guessed) launch the VS installer program (make sure normal VS is closed) and down load that particular sdk. see bellow for details. read this https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/

and then this https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/Development/VisualStudioSetup/UnrealVS/index.html

I got it to work. I had thought I'd already downloaded 8.1 but trying to do it again seemed to make everything work. Thank you for the help!
