Build plugin package with vs 2019

Hi there,

I’m trying to create a package of a plugin that i’ve created using 4.26, but the build fail with the following error

UATHelper: Package Plugin Task (Windows): ERROR: Visual Studio 2017 must be installed in order to build this target.

i wasn’t expecting this issue since 4.26 is supposed to vs 2019, is there a way to fix that ?
I was able to run the following command with 2019 as argument but, it seem like it stop half step on the packaging process since i only get “HostProject” which i would expect it to be renamed with my pacakge name

Any help would be appreciated



For those who are looking on how to solve this issue, the easiest way for now is to use the command line

C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.26\Engine\Build\BatchFiles\RunUAT.bat BuildPlugin -Rocket -Plugin=Path\Plugin.uplugin -TargetPlatforms=Win64 -Package=OutputPath -VS2019


THNX for sharing! Really appreciate. Works OK for me on 4.27)
