I’ve recently added a new SSD to my Windows PC and installed Windows 7 & UE4 to it but it seems that the way in which I’ve migrated the engine and my projects to it have caused a problem.
Basically, if I try to open any project from the launcher or from Windows Explorer I get the error “this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action…”.
The Launcher would usually identify pre-existing projects when it’s installed for the first time, but I installed the Launcher and Engine prior to grabbing the latest of my projects from Perforce.
Now I know that uprojects are generally opened with ‘Unreal Engine’, at least according to the Windows ‘Open With’ window that was on the previous install. However, no such program exists within the Engine folder, just UE4Editor & UE4Game.
And unfortunately when you uninstall the Launcher, you are still left with alot of files, data and register entries associated with the hidden folder ProgramData/Epic… so I don’t know how to get a clean Launcher again without formatting my SSD and starting over.
Does anyone know how to associated .uproject files with the program Unreal Engine?
