How to deactivate Visual Studio launching?


I’m an amateur C++ developer, new to UE4, and i use Code::Blocks to code in C++. I am tired about seeing the editor launching Visual Studio every time I create a new C++ class. So how to avoid this automatic launching ? Thanks ! :slight_smile:

The easy workaround is to open your project’s DefaultEngine.ini and add the following to the bottom:


That will disable all editor integration with the Visual Studio IDE.
