4.6.1 Crashes on Launch

I get this callstack after the editor loads to 29% I am in the middle of an art test for a job and this is driving me insane. I just bought this ■■■■ thing and it doesn’t work.

Hey kurtophecles -

How are you launching the Editor via the launcher or via a compiled Github? If you are using the launcher, go into the library tab and verify the build of the engine and if from GitHub rebuild the solution. I suspect that something has become corrupted in the engine itself and need to be fixed either through a verify and re-download fix or from a recompile.

Let me know -

I used both the launcher and the exe. I ended up restarting and it somehow started working again, and I can’t understand why…
