Debug Game in "MyGameEditor (Debug)" Run Config

Hi Guys,
can anyone tell me why I can not run the auto generated configuration to debug my game. It keeps telling me that

LINK fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.20\Engine\Intermediate\Build\Win64\UE4Editor\Debug\Core\UE4Editor-Core-Win64-Debug.lib'

The file is actually missing. Can anyone tell me what I can do to rectify this?

I’m using VSCode. In VS2017 I would have had the option to attach to a running process, but this is not an option in vscode afaik.
Even in VS2017 its not working. It would load up the editor, but the breakpoints will not be triggered. Eventhough I did download the debug symbols.


I don’t know what I did, really. But it works right now. It might be one of the following:

  • Check the “Include Debug Files” checkbox in the project settings, to be able to debug the game with an attached debugger.
  • Run [GameName]Edit (DebugGame) Configuration.
