    Could not generate project files when VS is installed in non-standard location

    Hi!
    I noticed that if Visual Studio is installed in a non-standard location (program files (x86)) then unreal engine has problems finding cl.exe which causes it to fail on project file generation.
    I noticed that during the installation of VS, it installs cl.exe under program files (x86) but devenv and other editor-binaries are in your custom directory.
    Are there system variables available to provide unreal engine with the correct path to cl.exe?

    I did a full reinstall of VS2013 community edition under program files (x86) to confirm that it works and that this was the actual issue at hand.
Working...
