Hey ,

The reason you get this error is that “Stack.h” already exists in the engine, so when you create a project with the same name, you get an error as the file is already in the engine.

I have put in a issue ticket for this so the development team can block the name being used in the future. You can follow it here:

For now, simply use a different name for your project.

Thank you

just a quick note, in the bug, you mistyped stack for slack :slight_smile: , just a fyi, they won’t be able to reproduce this issue if they use slack


Thanks, fixed now.

i just tried to check the status of 35863 and it seem to be deleted. was it resloved ?


Seemed like there was a hiccup and I reset it. Should be good now.
