Hello, I have a small amount of experience with VS Code and Visual Studio Community, but I recently started using Rider as my main IDE for Unreal 5 development. My plan was to go through a tutorial series with Rider to make sure I could use it before trying to do any solo development with it.
I almost immediately ran into the following “Assertion Failed” issue when trying to package a project with the ThirdPersonCharacter: UE5 Dedicated server Error: Assertion failed: Index != INDEX_NONE - #2 by B3b3L
Some of the fixes for this issue suggest updating Visual Studio, and I’ve tried those suggestions, but I’m unsure whether Rider still uses elements of VS to run and package Unreal projects. My current understanding is that I still need to have Visual Studio installed and to use it for updating things like .NET framework, which Rider then uses to work. Is that correct?
