Question regarding community version of Visual Studio


I have recently started the Unreal Engine C++ Udemy course, I am currently on lectures 6 and 10, and having issues with the cl command in the developer command prompt.

I am assuming this is due to the fact that I am trying to use the community version of Visual Studio and wondered if someone could please confirm this for me?

Many Thanks,


I’m going to assume you’re working through the new Section 1.

In which case, yes the issue is because you’re using Visual Studio Community. You don’t actually need to use the command prompt or terminal for compiling code in Visual Studio Community like you do with Visual Studio Code. In Visual Studio Community you can press Ctrl + Shift + B or select “Build Solution” from the Build Menu at the top.
