I’m trying to use UE4 on a new system (I never had any issues on my laptop). I installed VS 2017, and then used it to compile the engine from source. When I try to create a project, I get a message telling me: “No compiler was found. In order to use a C++ template, you must install Visual Studio 2017.” This is pretty annoying, since I used VS 2017 in order to compile the engine in the first place.
I have tried uninstalling VS 2017, and installing it again from the button provided next to the error message. I have also tried installing the engine using the Epic Games Launcher, which gives me the same error. I’ve checked which packages should be installed with VS 2017 for UE4, and installed a load of other ones besides.
None of these worked, and I’ve spent a lot of time trying to get UE4 working, so I’d greatly appreciate some help. Thanks
Edit: the engine version is actually 4.16.1
