Still can't compile source

Hello all…

I’m not that up on compilers unfortunately but as far as i can make out i have tried all the suggestions for bad compiles of the source code to na avail.
It’s almost as if the compiler cant write files because this error comes within 10 seconds of starting the compile operation. VS Express 2013 for desktop on Windows7 64bit by the way.
I’ve got my UnrealEngine folder in the C root, started everything up as Administrator but nothing seems to help. Also done the “WITH_VSEXPRESS=1” trick to no avail.
Can someone possibly help me out here??

Many thanks for any help in advance…

You’ve downloaded both required zips,the optional and the recommended DX runtime ?

Did you download and extract the optional and required zip files from the github page? I’m on a mobile so I can’t link, but it’s in the readme on the first page.

@MrNexy… From what i’ve read, the optional zip was only if you used the VS2012 compiler (missing stuff in the 2012 compiler or something like that)… and yes, DX 10 runtime.
@Sonshi… yes… i used the required zips 1 & 2…

See this thread: Errors building the source code - C++ Gameplay Programming - Unreal Engine Forums

In post #3 he said he re-downloaded the dependancies and now its working fine.

Yes… i had seen that one and also tried to na avail… thanks anyways…

BUT… i have been playing with it again and have found out why it failed all the time…
Being impatient as i often am, i was trying to build the source BEFORE i had installed the Downloadable editor, once i had realized that i had’nt done that yet, i installed that and then tried compiling the source again… JAZAAM… worked first time…

Thanks all for the help…
