Known issue with CRYENGINE 5.5 and VS 2017

#1
Fixed since 5.5 Preview 5

We are aware of a run-time crash when running a compiled version of CRYENGINE 5.5 built with the latest release of Visual Studio 2017 (15.7).

Affected Versions: 5.5 Preview 1 - 5.5 Preview 4
Issue: Sandbox will crash due to an exception on startup.
Occurs when: Building Sandbox using Visual Studio 15.7 from source, then running.

Workaround(s):
  1. Disable Python Autocomplete;
    Open "Editor\Python\plugins\crytools\startup.py" in notepad or similar text editor.
    Comment out the last line (the last command) by placing a # (hash) symbol at the start of this line like so:

    Code: Select all

    #autocomplete.generate_auto_complete_dummy_files()
  2. Use Visual Studio 2015 to build CRYENGINE and Sandbox for 5.5.
  3. Stay, or downgrade to a version prior to Visual Studio 15.7.
We are investigating the issue and will present a fix as soon as possible. In the meantime please use one of the workarounds if you are wanting to build Sandbox yourself for now.

C# & C++ templates shouldn't be affected.
