Can not find MSBuild when using GenerateProjectFiles

msbuild-is-not-recognized on UnrealAnswers

So I’ve tried re-installing VS 2013 for desktop. I’ve re-downloaded the source/disabled virus scans/ran as administrator. But still when I run the batch file. Does anyone know the script that calls this command so i can verify the path its using?

I removed 2008 but I still have VS 2003 for some tools i created years back that Can’t easily update to the lastest VS. In this batch output i see that its linking to the VS 2003… OI Would I be able to remove that, make the solution and then reinstall 2003 and everything be good with the UE4 Engine on a compilation level?

I can’t say for certain however it would be worth trying to remove 2003 and then compiling the engine. Also the .bat file returned a desktop directory which seems odd. If VS is installed on your desktop I would try re-installing it to the default location.

My OS the CDrive but because its a small SSD I have moced my desktop locations to my F drive that’s why it appears that way.

Uninstalled 2003 :

Also if i load CMD i can type msbuild in the command line and it works. So there has to be something hard coded some where that I can not find…
