error(MSB3073) in visual studio with unreal engine

I’m new using visual studio and unreal engine (but I learnt c++ previously). I’m in trouble right now. I guess the issue is more related about Visual Studio than Unreal Engine but I’ll post on both forums I guess. Let me explain :

I use Unreal engine 4.9.2 and visual studio 2013 update 4 (that has been installed) from UE.

When first open VS while creating a new project I have this error message :


but then VS opens normally.

Later, when I create a new actor in UE and that I try to build it adding just this line :


I have 2 brand new error messages :

Error 1 error code:
OtherCompilationError (5)

Error 2 error MSB3073: The command
Games\4.9\Engine\Build\BatchFiles\Build.bat” test4Editor Win64 Development

38 5 test4 What I tried to do to fix
it : - remove and install again unreal
engine and visual studio : same

install visual studio from another source and then install unreal engine (removing both and rebooting before, obviously) : same issues.

Install Unreal Engine 4.10 => other issue, I’m not able to install Visual Studio 2015 (the installer packed with UE fails).

Using UE 4.10 Install Visual studio 2015 from another source : same Issues

Uninstall all and retry with UE4.9 and VS2013 : same issues

The complete source code of the header (the .cpp file has not been modified, it is still blank):

// Fill out your copyright notice in the Description page of Project Settings.

#pragma once

#include "GameFramework/Actor.h"
#include "MyActor.generated.h"

UCLASS() class TEST4_API AMyActor : public AActor {

        // Sets default values for this actor's properties

        // Called when the game starts or when spawned
        virtual void BeginPlay() override;

        // Called every frame
        virtual void Tick( float DeltaSeconds ) override;


Honestly I learnt at school how to program using makefiles and linux but with an IDE, I am a total beginner. I hope someone will be able to help me. Thanks in advance.

PS : I apologize if I made grammar mistakes but english is not my native language.

did you find a solution?

Sorry for not responding, I totaly forgot that post. The answer is : no, I started over from the begining on UE 12 and since, I never had this kind of error again.
