Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello there,

I downloaded Unreal Engine 4 and I have extracted all in the same location and now I have this error. I don’t know why because I followed the steps and still. Does anyone have a solution for this error ? Why I have this and what I did wrong ?

Thank you !

UnrealBuildTool Exception ERROR Visual Studio 2012



Here are some points you have to follow if you want to resolve this problem.

Access the UnrealEngine > Engine > Source > Programs > UnrealBuildTool > Windows > UEBuildWindows.cs

There will be line showing WindowsCompiler.VisualStudio 2013 but you have to change it to WindowsCompiler.VisualStudio 2012;

Now again run the GenerateProjectFiles.bat and it must work properly.
