Can't launch a game in UE4.5

I just downloaded UE4, I started a new project (not c++), and I selected Third person as a template.

Then, I click on Launch. I get an error:

ERROR: Exception in AutomationTool: No files found to deploy for C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.5\Engine\Binaries\ThirdParty\PhysX\APEX-1.3\Win64\VS2012 with wildcard *.dll

This path does not exist, it is VS2013 not VS2012. Also, I don’t want to use visual studio with Unreal Engine.

If I rename the folder VS2013 to VS2012, the game crashes:

Fatal Error!

KERNELBASE.DLL!UnknownFunction(....) + 0 bytes [UnknownFile:0] ..... 

Thank you

I think it should work when you just install visual studios express 2013 (free) :slight_smile:

So visual studio is required to run Unreal Engine 4 ? Even if we don’t want to program ?

If it’s not a c++ project I understand that you don’t need VS installed.

Not sure about things like packaging, making a proper installer for the game and other stuff like that, but as far as opening and working on your project, no, you don’t need it.

Report this on AnswerHub please.
