  • Hi Abhijnan Saha,

    >>This issue is happening after I formatted my entire PC few weeks ago.

    Please follow the workaround to install UnrealVS Extension in your visual studio. And Confirm if UE4.natvis file has been copied to either of the following locations:

    • [VisualStudioInstallPath]/Common7/Packages/Debugger/Visualizers/UE4.natvis
    • [UserProfile]/My Documents/Visual Studio 2019/Visualizers/UE4.natvis

    If the error persists, we suggest you could redirect to UnrealEngine forum for better support.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • What kind of project are you trying to build?

    Without further information my best guess is that your project has a post-build step that invokes regsvr32.exe but does not pass it a proper command line.

  • I am trying to make a game by writing codes in VS2019 and compiling it to apply the effects in Unreal Engine 4. My way of doing it was always the same, I write the codes, I usually compile with "Ctrl+B"(When UE4 is open in the background), and then UE4 gives a notification sound when it is done updating my newly compiled VS codes. 

    Now when I try to compile with "Ctrl+B" it says the compilation was a success, but the UE4 shows no response. I do launch my VS codes from Unreal Engine only. It still feels like the Visual Studio and the Unreal Engine are not at all in sync with each other. This issue is happening after I formatted my entire PC few weeks ago.

    When I close UE4 and try to build the project files using "Ctrl+F5" or "F5" from VS, It shows me that Regsvr32.exe error. 

    Tell me what else you need me to share for this !!
