Packaging project suddenly requires VS2019?

UE is suddenly giving me this error that I require VS2019 to package project, I did not get the error before on the same project. Only major change in my project is that I enabled Epic Games’ Blender addon to import models directly to UE (tried disabling that and unlinking github but didn’t help). I have no custom C++ files, it’s a BP project

Is it caused by that or why all of the sudden it tells me I require VS2019?

It’s the water plugin:


VS is free, at that’s one thing.

I have also had this problem, with other plugins. I cracked and got VS…

Thanks, disabling that fixed it. I guess I’ll install VS in the future
