I have recently installed unreal engine 4 for my class at university and have run into a big problem. When I go into blueprints and make a new class blueprint, that works fine. But the moment I try to add a component, say a cube, it will freeze, and when I try to close the program a white box will appear and I will have to close the program via task manager. It seems that when I click the green box for add component, the title “Adds new component to this actor”, will stay and not go away.
This also happens when I click content browser in the main editor, the title box will not go away and will follow my mouse over any other heading and once I click on a object to add it will crash the editor.
I’m out of ideas; as I have uninstalled the whole engine, re-booted my computer several times and nothing works. Everything else about the editor works fine.
While testing I was unable to reproduce your issue. My steps were:
- Create a blank project with default settings
- Right click in content browser and select blueprint class
- Click on Actor when the “Pick Parent Class” dialogue window pops up
- Open new Actor BP in BP editor and click green “Add Component” button then select cube
Cube is created as a static mesh component
If you followed these steps and are getting a crash I would like to get your dxdiag specs.
You can do this by:
- Opening the command prompt and type: dxdiag
- Then a window should pop up with your system info.
- Click the “save all information” button at the bottom right and attach that information here in a comment.
I tried doing exactly above and it still does not work. It looks like dialogue window does not want to work. It will show up as completely black and I am unable to click anything.
Attatched are my specs that you requested.
I also attatched a screenshot of what happens when I try to follow these steps.
According to your dxdiag your drivers are out of date on your GeForce GTX 860M card. Get the most up to date driver here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers\
Try this and let me know if this resolves your issue.
That worked! Thank you man; I really appreciate it.
