I’ve been trying to get an editor module to run so that property specialization gets excluded from the packaged builds, as that leads to errors.
The project compiles and the module gets hooked up, but when I package, it gives me the following error:
UATHelper: Packaging (Windows (64-bit)): C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.19\Engine\Source\Editor\UnrealEd\Classes\TexAligner/TexAligner.h(14): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘TexAligner.generated.h’: No such file or directory
I have not touched the TexAligner class at all, nor the generated header. I still deleted all binaries, intermediates etc. pp. just to make sure.
I heavily suspect it has something to do with the .build files, but I don’t really understand how this could happen. What could cause the TexAligner.h to not find its own generated .h file? I checked to make sure and it does exist.
This ensures that your editor module gets compiled into a .dll only in editor builds, but otherwise not. Also, in my own module header file, I did NOT include UnrealEd.h. The .Build file of my module only includes Core, MyGame and the editor module I want to use, such as “PropertyEditor”.
