Unable to create c++ project

Hi,

Whenever i try to create a C++ project i get an error saying

Running C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.16/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe -projectfiles -project=“C:/Users/pradeep/Documents/Unreal Projects/MyProject3/MyProject3.uproject” -game -rocket -progress
Script root element is not in the ‘https://www.unrealengine.com/BuildConfiguration’ namespace (add the xmlns=“https://www.unrealengine.com/BuildConfiguration” attribute)

I can only create project in Blueprints. Also in Blueprints similar error is seen while trying to run the AutomationTool

Regards,
Pradeep. D
