Cannot compile on a folder with Special Characters

I don’t know it this is your bug or VS2013’s bug, but I couldn’t compile when my project folder was inside my documents folder, (my username is João).


Hi . Would you mind confirming that the error you are receiving is the following:

error MSB3073: The command "D:\Main-Builds\UE4\Engine\Build\BatchFiles\Build.bat TestEditor Win64 Development "C:\Users\.\Documents\Unreal Projects\João\Test\Test.uproject"" exited with code -1.

Hi ,

I just wanted to give you an update on this issue. We have a developer that is looking into what is causing users to be unable to build when the file path contains a special character. I do not know when we will have a solution for you, but we are investigating it further.

Have a great day.

Hi ,

I’ve investigated the issue and it appears to be how Visual Studio passes command line arguments to our tools. Therefore it’s VS2013’s bug.

Thanks for reporting it anyway.
