UE4 not compatable with visual studio 2015?

I did a google search for visual studio community and installed it from the main website, but UE4 wont recognize it. i went back and checked and the page doesnt mention that its the RC version im installing. So i have “visual studio 2015 RC” apparently UE4 doesnt recognize this as a valid install and tries to get me to install visual studio 2013 instead.

Should i uninstall VS 2015 and let UE4 install 2013? or is there something im missing? is using the RC frowned upon?

version ->
Visual Studio community 2015 RC
version 14.0.22823.1 D14REL

I wouldn’t use a RC for UE4 because it isn’t supported. You could probably use it manually but you wouldn’t have any of the options available to you that the supported version of Visual Studio gives you.

If I were you, I would stick to VS2013 for the time being as it is guaranteed to work and has been tested by Epic. Just my 2c. 8-}
