Error MSB3073: The command ..\..\Build\BatchFiles\Build.bat UE4Editor Win64 Development exited with code -1

Hi All,

I’m new to unreal Engine. Last week for the first time I’ve downloaded the source code of 4.8 from the github and then I’ve extracted the setup.bat file in the command prompt and extracted the Generatedprojectfiles.bat also. After opening the UE4.sln file I’ve build this file I got two errors.
Error MSB3073: The command …\Build\BatchFiles\Build.bat UE4Editor Win64 Development exited with code -1.

In some of the forums they told to reinstall the DirectX and in some forums try re-extracting the required zip files again.
I reinstalled DirectX but in the new version I got only one setup.bat file please help me with the error and I’m using preforce also. Is because of preforce this error occurs?? please help me with this issue.

Thanks & Regards
Programmer.

For the past 2 days I got stuck with this problem please help me if I solve this only I can able to work on my project please help me…

Hi Game Programmer,

Could you provide the full output you receive from Visual Studio when the build fails?

HI that error is solved it was merging the source code with perforce. All I did was I removed some unwanted .pdb files and made .dll and .exe files writable in binaries folder.
