I’ve installed UE 4.6.1 just for the first look. Unfortunately, when I tried to create a new C++ project, the editor didn’t allow me to do this, because VS 2013 is not installed. I can’t install VS 2013 due to Windows service packs issues (too long story), but VS 2010 is already presented. Any chance to explore UE C++ features on that machine using VS 2010? Maybe, create the project on another machine, move it to mine then start VS manually or something?
I’m wondering why at all it’s coupled so tight to VS (not GCC for instance).
