Interaction: Unreal editor - Visual studio

Dear experts,

I don’t remember in the videos ever where we set up a connection between Unreal and Visual Studio.
How does Unreal know that Visual Studio is our C++ editor? It automatically determines it?

Thank you for any input on my question.

Kind regards, Peter

Unreal’s default editor is Visual Studio, so it does not know, it expects that VS installed. BTW they have an episode (#urc_s01_setup_visual_studio_or_xcode , where they explain how to install VS and what to tick on during the install.

Thank you - yes I do remember that episode now and I ticked what they showed in the video also. Unreal and VS are working perfectly for me. I was just wondering about their “connection”.
Best regards, Peter
