UE 4.26 Shaders Issue

I’m having issues with my shaders, where it will say “Compiling Shaders (Some number)”, but no matter how long I wait, it never seems to finish compiling and from time to time I get windows error sounds with no error message, which I assume is caused by the compiling shaders. I also seem to freeze my projects when I try to save any materials I create. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?


Try deleting your DerivedDataCache. I hade the same problem (of shaders not compiling. can’t say anything about error sounds or project freezes) and this worked for me. You can find it (on Windows) under AppData/Local/UnrealEngine/Common/

Thanks, that seemed to have solve my issues.
