Please help! Project crashes when opening

Absolution.log (96.1 KB)
I was trying to reduce the file size of my project, so I added some info to the Packing area of the Project Settings, then I disable some Plugins that did not look like they were being used. Now, after restarting the project, it crashed on launch every time. I’m guessing there was a Plugin I closed which was necessary? How do I troubleshoot this? I attached my log. Here is the crash error:

Hello @dtveraas,

I am so sorry that you are having issues with your project crashing. That is such a bummer! We want you to continue expressing your creativity! I want you to know that you are not alone in this. Unfortunately, crashes happen to both neophytes and experts. Thank you so much for posting your crash log! I would like to offer some assistance that would get you started in finding some possible solutions to the problem.

Have you reported the issue to Unreal’s answerhub? Answer Hub If not, I encourage you to do so. You may find that there are others who also share issues similar to yours.

Which engine version do you use?

I was using 26.2. I did not get any response on the Answer Hub. I find only about 1 out of 3 of my Answer Hub questions get responses, so I’ve learned to post in multiple places, including this forum and social media. One suggestion was to open the executable in notepad and manually change plugins from false to true. This worked. Thank you for getting back to me. :slight_smile:
