Can projects be exported to another version of UE4?

The name says it all… So if I made a project on 4.1.1 and wanted to open it in a 4.2 or 4.3(in the future) will it work?

Thank you very much

Hey Defiled,

Yes, your projects will continue to work on updated builds. There are occasions where you might need to be aware of changes and how they might affect aspects of your projects, and you can usually find that information in the release notes. If you ever have an issue after upgrading to the latest release, let us know on AnswerHub and we’ll try to help you figure out what to do to fix it, and in the meantime you can always open a project with an earlier version via the Launcher.

Hope that answers your question!

here the notes from the blog, 4.0 to 41
so i guess will happen similar cases

Upgrading Projects

Some steps may be required to get your 4.0 project working in 4.1.

Upgrading Blueprint-only projects
You can load your existing project in the new editor normally.
Note: Some Blueprint APIs may have changed between versions, which could cause warnings in your content. Read the API Changes section for more information.

Upgrading C++ code projects
You’ll need to recompile the C++ project for the new version of Unreal Engine
Locate the .uproject file in your game’s folder, and right click on it. (on Mac, you can also Command + Click)
Select Switch Unreal Engine Version → 4.1 (on Mac, this is in a Services menu)
Right click to generate new C++ project files, then recompile your game normally.
Note: Some C++ APIs may have changed between versions, which can cause compile errors. Read the API Changes section for more information.

Sorry for the inconvenience! We’re working on simplifying the upgrade process for future versions."

so basically before updating read the changes so you can work around it.
