Visual Studio 2017 was just realeased, and I was wondering if we could get support for it in UE4? And if we do, when? I’m really excited about it for it’s new features and I really wanna use it with UE4 (intellisense might be faster).
Thanks for update. I managed to run VS2017 with UE4.15. For all the guys who want to do it: Just install VS2017 and make sure C++ development and Windows 8.1 SDK is marked. Note that for me simply installing the win8.1 sdk didn’t work. I had to go and download it manually and install it. Works like charm!
I compiled UE4 with VS2017 and I must say intellisense support has improved drastically. Usually it took me about 25 minutes to load the intellisense in the Engine github project to compile. Now it took less than 10 minutes. Also when I created a project I get very fast suggestions when typing.
Haven’t tried out IWYU (include what you use) yet but I will soon.
Btw, that thing with the /Yu I used back in 2015 to get faster intellisense, but in 2017 I don’t need to use it anymore!
