UE5 Doesn't detect compiler (VS2022)

Hello everyone

I just tried to create a new brand C++ project in Unreal 5 but I could not since an error showing that can’t locate my visual studio compiler.

I’m using VS2022 installed in a custom path. It have the C++ game package which provides support for UE.

I would appreciate if there is any way to indicate UE5 where to locate the compiler either a config file or an environtment variable.

Thanks for your time


In your project settings you can select what compiler the engine should use. Normally it is set to automatically choose it. You can try out manually selecting it.

Hey thanks for replying, but to do so I believe I need to have already one project created right?

Ohhh. So for you it doesn’t work at all? If so maybe you have multiple instances installed.
