BuildConfiguration is inaccessible in 4.19

Trying to generate project files against 4.19 I get:

error CS0122: 'UnrealBuildTool.BuildConfiguration' is inaccessible due to its protection level

This is from a plugin bulid.cs with the following code:


It seems UnrealBuildTool.BuildConfigiration is no longer accessible from build.cs files? What is the correct way to get things like RelativeEnginePath in 4.19?

thanks alot! i’ve been trying to get it working for 2 weeks.
and also for

string PluginPath = Utils.MakePathRelativeTo(ModuleDirectory, BuildConfiguration.RelativeEnginePath);

you can change it into

string PluginPath = Utils.MakePathRelativeTo(ModuleDirectory, Target.RelativeEnginePath);

to fix that issue :smiley:
