Can't package projects in Unreal 4.13.1 with Wwise plugin active

0 votes
Hello,

 I've been trying to package a UE4.13.1 project with the Wwise v2016.1.3 integration (Build 5878) installed as an engine plugin, and sadly the process always ends in errors. Now the same project build just fine when de-activating the Wwise plugin. I tried to dig a little deeper and took a look at the build log to get more info. In short, the issue can be attributed to this:

     LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.13\Engine\Plugins\Wwise\Binaries\Win64\UE4-AkAudio.lib'

I tried all of the options I could think of without success. I installed the integration as an Installed Plugin, following the steps provided here https://www.audiokinetic.com/library/edge/?source=UE4&id=installation.html, I did both installation methods with the engine's source obtained though GitHub and the version downloaded from the Epic Games Launcher.

Thanks in advance,

Daniel

Hey! I managed to make it work on my system. However, I didn't find the cause of the problem. Here's what I did:

Deleted C:\Program Files\Epic Games\4.13
Re-installed UE 4.13
Installed the Wwise Integration Plugin as an ''
installed plug-in'' (not engine)
Opened the UE project that has the integration and activated the plugin, routed it to the Wwise Session
Rebuilt my UE4 project through Visual Studio 15 Community

Cheers,
