    [4.23.1, Shipping only] Missing precompiled manifest for 'DesktopPlatform'

    I'm writing a plugin that involves opening a file dialog via the DesktopPlatform module.

    The plugin and game package fine for debuggame and development configuration, however when I package for shipping, the build fails with the following error message:

    ERROR: Missing precompiled manifest for 'DesktopPlatform'. This module was most likely not flagged for being included in a precompiled build - set 'PrecompileForTargets = PrecompileTargetsType.Any;' in to override.
    I am using the binary 4.23.1 version of the engine, and I assumed the DesktopPlatform module would be available for runtime plugins, am I mistaken?

    It took some searching on the internet, but eventually I found out that Developer modules are not packaged with shipping builds due to EULA conditions.
    I'll have to make my own file dialog as an alternative now.
