Hello unreal community,

Please, I really need your help with this.

Do you have any suggestions for me?
I have to stay on schedule.

Please download all required files for Visual Studio and the Windows SDK for 8.1, that should resolve the issue for you. If you’re not sure how to install, simply go to uninstall/reinstall and right-click on Visual Studio and hit ‘modify’ once you’re there, you’ll be able to add the Common Tools, etc so that it’ll compile properly.

Let me know if you’re still having trouble, thanks!

Hello ,

thanks for you’r reply! I’m reinstalling Visual Studio and SDK right now. Do I have to install SDK 8.1 or SDK 10 on a Windows 10 PC-System?


A big thank you very much . I always installed the SDK 10 manual (not with with Visual Studio). I still wonder why the deployment worked some days ago without reinstall this with VS - but that’s old stuff!
You really set me happy! And productive again!
