C++ and Visual Studio

Do I really need the entire Visual Studio 2015, in order to run some of the games that I have made back in UE 4.12? Or do I simply need the libraries?

Hi there,
if you cooked your game in shipping mode, you only have to install a little package.
If you cooked your game in dev mode, you have to install a bit more.
If you didn’t cook your game and want to run it on Unreal Engine, you have to get a version of Unreal Engine.
If you added c++ code to your project (files, or just the blueprint block “console command”), you have to get Visual Studio 2015 (or 2017).
I hope that it helped.
