Hello, when i create a project with UE and c++ i get this error

The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

Did you move the Unreal engine from it's original position after downloading it?


The error is a path error, meaning unreal can't find that exact location from where it is could be many reasons for it. We need to know more about the folder you are attempting to create the project in.

Looks like Mojibake to me. :^)
Somewhere along the workflow, there’s some Unicode mis-translation. Moving the project into a strictly ASCII path would fix the issue.
