Importing a C++ project into my C++ Project?


I am trying to combine C++ code in a template and C++ code in my project into one project. I am finding it difficult to combine the C++ code from my project and the template into the one solution and then getting the UE4 editor to pick up the new C++ project.
I need to add the template as an additional project as there are blueprints that derive from a base class in the template that UE4 will not let me re parent. I have tried simply grabbing the files and dropping them into my solution which gave me the re parenting issue.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your time.
