[Wwise 2021.1.0.7575/Unreal Engine 4.26] Missing UE4Editor-AkAudio.lib

0 votes

For the past 2 days, I have been trying to switch to Wwise's Unreal Engine 4 Engine Plugin, since the Game Plugin seems to crash frequently. I followed this installation process ( to the letter on both my laptop and desktop (which are Windows 10 and Windows 8.1, respectively) only to get the same error whenever I place "AkAudio" into the PublicDependencyModuleNames in [GameName].Build.cs. Here is the output log for the error.

 Upon going into the AkAudio folder that is being referenced in the fatal error, there is only a 'Definitions.AkAudio.h' file. I've been at this for quite a long time, and I'm honestly at a loss of what I should do to solve the issue. Can anyone supply me with any insight?
