Hi, I’ve encountered this “Failed to open description file” error that others have also been seeing, but I believe mine is caused by a slightly different reason. Here were the steps:
Package existing project folder into a .zip file
Transfer .zip file to 2nd PC, and extract
Generate new VS solution file & open
Try to launch UE4 Editor from VS
Get the error: Failed to open description file [PATH NAME to .uproject file]
Here’s the hint though: the PATH NAME is that of the 1st PC. The 2nd PC doesn’t even have a D drive, but the path shown in the error is of the original project’s path name, which is on the D drive of the 1st PC.
Am I not transporting the project properly? Are there additional steps that I am missing? Any help would be appreciated!
Hey! I downloaded the ARKit example project and had the same issue. Deleting those folders didn’t help, but moving the project to /Users/Shared/Epic Games/UE_4.17 did the trick as it was clearly trying to access the default absolute path. Not sure how to change this path tho, so for now, the example project will be in my Editor folder
