I was getting this error or something similar “BUILD FAILED: RUN.BAT failed automation tool couldn’t find wildcard crashreport.exe”. So I searched around and found out that a few people on the forums also where having this problem and decided not to be lazy for once and actually just read the error report. After Looking carefully through the report I saw that it said failed to find files blah blah and everyone that had some type of answer was posting on the forums saying maybe try to reinstall visual studio and stuff similar to that but that’s silly as you can see crashreport.exe is missing from engine/binaries/Win64.
The problem is that for some strange reason visual studio doesn’t create this file when you do a normal build, and by that I mean when you just simply open the ue4.sln in visual studio then right clicking the ue4 tab on the right of the screen and selecting either rebuild or build, What you actually Must do is that you have to scroll in visual studio a little lower until you get to crashreport, then you must right click it and select “build” making sure that your settings are on “development editor and 64bit If that doesn’t work also try building it in just developmnt mode”
this will now fix the build error and you now should be able to build your projects. Make sure to check the win64 folder to see if crashreport.exe is now there after it has all been finished building in visual studio :))))
