Unable to create a C++ project

Hi there,

I’m trying to create a simple C++ Basic Code project within UE4.17 and I’m getting the following error:

The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

Running C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.17/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe RoomEscape Development Win64 -project=“C:/Users/Gustavo/Documents/Unreal Projects/RoomEscape/RoomEscape.uproject” -editorrecompile -progress -NoHotReloadFromIDE

@progress pop
ERROR: No 32-bit compiler toolchain found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\cl.exe

When I click at “open in Visual Studio”, it says:

Could not edit the code editing IDE. C:/Users/Gustavo/Documents/Unreal Projects/RoomEscape2/RoomEscape2.sln could not be found.

I’m just a beginner and this would be my first project in UE4 as I’m still learning C++. What should I do?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi! I did a quick Google search for that error, and it seems that you don’t have the C++ build tools installed for Visual Studio. You can download them here. Let me know if it persists, and I’ll try my best to help out. :slight_smile:
