HTML5 packaging via "File -> Package Project -> HTML5" doesn't work

In the UE4 editor, if I try to package a project via File → Package Project → HTML5 option it creates the package, but doesn’t work. A black screen shows up when I try to run the project’s HTML file (via localhost:8000). Have tried all possible combinations of package settings (Dev/Shipping/Cook everything etc.)

However, when I package the project via the “Launch” option (for Firefox Nightly build), it works.

I’ve created a blank project with “Desktop/Console”, “Scalable 2D/3D” and “No Starter Content” settings.

Anybody else facing this issue? Thanks.

PS: It works if “With Starter Content” option is chosen. But I’d like to start out with a minimal project and build up on that.


I have been able to run my HTML5 project without any trouble. Could you please include screenshots? And also let me know whether or not you’re on Binary or Source. As well as if you’re on 4.10.4 or a lower version.
