Since I can’t find anything about this on the forum, I am either only one of the few engine source users, or I am simply a complete retards.
Anyhow: When you download the source and try to compile it under windows 8(.1), you will run into some strange dll-related errors.
This is because windows (smart as it is), deems all the dlls downloaded with the source as dangerous, and disables/reroutes them.
Since there is a massive amount of these files, and windows does not offer a native solution for correcting this in batch, I have, after some
cursing and screaming, found this tool called Streams from MS (sysinternals).
This is a command line tool that you just place in the root folder of whatever solution you are working on. After that, open a command prompt
with admin privileges, and (after browsing to where you put streams.exe) write “streams.exe -s -d .”, without the "'s.
This saved me a lot of trouble, and I hope it will for someone else as well!
