With UE4.13.1, I’m unable to launch to my android device via wifi. In my log, I see “Program.Main: ERROR: AutomationTool terminated with exception: System.NotSupportedException: The given path’s format is not supported.” If I connect my device via USB, the launch works fine. But I was previously able to get it to launch via wifi in 4.12.3, so I’m not sure why I wouldn’t be able to launch it via wifi in 4.13.1.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is the error being seen in the logs provided:
ERROR: AutomationTool terminated with exception: System.NotSupportedException: The given path's format is not supported.
It’s possible that you’re failing due to the : being in the log filename for your device ID. A way to work around this is to package your project and install it over WiFi.
Thanks for the reply. Wifi launching does work in 4.12, though, and I think it uses the same path format as 4.13 for wifi launching (IP address plus the colon character). Maybe there’s something else causing the issue. Are there any plans to fix this feature in the future? It does take a bit longer to package the game and install via wifi.
It’ll be fixed in the future, we couldn’t implement it in time for an earlier release. UE-37957
