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"

Version 4.22 and Visual Studio 2019

I recently uninstalled my Visual Studio 2017 cause with the release of 2019 and Unreal Engine 4.22 supporting it i wanted to swap to the new version. However it seems like its not possible to create new c++ projects with 4.22 if your only installed Visual Studio is 2019. It fails with:

**An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

Running C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.22/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project="C:/Users/Eric/Documents/Unreal Projects/MyProject/MyProject.uproject" -game -rocket -progress Discovering modules, targets and source code for project... WARNING: Visual Studio C++ 2017 installation not found - ignoring preferred project file format. ERROR: Visual Studio 2017 must be installed in order to build this target.


Is there a way to tell Unreal to use the 2019 Visual Studio for project file generation or is this simply a bug/not supported yet and i actually have to install 2017 again until this is fixed?

Product Version: UE 4.22

Did you change unreal source code editor? If not its in Edit > Editor Preferences > General : Source Code. You need existing project as far as i know.

This worked creating a blueprint only project and changing the default settings to VS2019 solved the issue.

I had same issue before.

Solved after install "Game development using C++" in "Mobile and Game" category from "Visual Studio Installer". I'm using Korean version VS, so not sure above is exact English title.
