How to Fix a Corrupted Unreal Engine Project

Maybe it is easier than it is done under Unity 3D.

1/ Found the corrupted Unreal project

2/ Go into the project folder

3/ Delete Microsoft Visual Studio Solution

4/ Delete Visual Studio Solution User Options

5/ Go to the Binaries folder

6/ Delete the whole subfolder (I have the Win64 folder because I use the 64-bit system)

7/ Get out from the Binaries folder

8/ Right click on the Unreal Engine Project File and choose Switch Unreal Engine version (if the corrupted project was made with an older version)

8/ Right click on the Unreal Engine Project File and choose Generate Visual Studio project files

9/ VS project files are generated again (Microsoft Visual Studio Solution and Visual Studio Solution User Options)

10/ Go to Epic Game Launcher and launch the corrupted project

11/ You will see Missing Project modules info window and just click Yes to rebuild

12/ The corrupted project will be opened and I hope it has been fixed and ready to use
