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"

See if the directory where your Unreal is installed has restrictions. You might need to give admin write permissions to that directory. The UnrealBuildTool needs these permission to compile files.

I hit similar problem in past, try creating empty log file in Saved/Log (ProjectName.log) in your project directory. Project actually was made but it you can not open it due ot this error.
