UE4.7.2 Hangs on new C++ project creation


So, I’m entirely new to Unreal Engine and I just installed it a few days ago from binaries (not source). However, whenever I try to create a new C++ 3rd-person shooter project, it hangs at 90% (every time), and shows up as not responding in the task manager. I’m running Windows 8.1, 4 GB RAM, Intel Integrated Graphics (I know…), Intel i3. I can create blueprint projects fine, so I’m guessing that it’s a problem with how I have VS installed? (If it helps, I have VS 2015 preview installed as well -could that be messing with it?)

Any ideas?

Hey AdamuKaapan-

This is a known bug that we are currently investigating. For now could you try the workarounds posted by zulushaka as the answer in this post: Creating new blank project freezes at 80% - Programming & Scripting - Unreal Engine Forums as well as Cronk’s solution in the accepted answer here: [4.6.1] Can't make new projects - Programming & Scripting - Unreal Engine Forums

Yes, thank you, that seems to have worked.
