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"

HELP UnrealBuildTool was unable to generate project files.

I am trying to build engine from the source, and no matter what I do, I always get the same error after executing GenerateProjectFiles.bat. It says that I don't have VS installed. But I do have and it works with binary version of engine. I have VS 2015 professional update 3.

Does anyone know how can i fix this? I cant go on with my project. I am stuck for couple days because of this.

Thanks in advance.

Product Version: UE Github Master branch

Thank you for your time and answer. Yes, I did everything that Epic said, and downloaded everything for VS2015, but problem was by my mistake, because i pulled master branch and not release. So if anyone else is trying to pull source using Sourcetree, you will need to expand advanced options and then select release branch. It's working now.
