After installing the UnrealVS version that arrived with 5.3. I can no longer use CompileSingleFile. It does however work on the Lyra project. One difference I notived, however, is that Lyra seems to be placed within UE5, e.g.





Whereas our project is beside the UE5 path with our own solution





Not sure if it's related, but I saw that there was a fix to CompileSingleFile.cs that added a hard coded relative path:


BuildCommandLine = BuildCommandLine.Replace("$(BuildBatchScript)", "..[Link Removed]");


which to me seems like it could be related.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Install UnrealVS
  2. Generate and open a project outside of the p4 depot root in visual studio 2022
  3. Open a project specific CPP
  4. Run UnrealVS Compile Single File
  5. Notice error, such as:
1>------ Build started: Project: MyProject, Configuration: DebugGame_Editor x64 ------1> Compiling D:\projects\dev\MyProject\Source\TestFile.cpp1> The system cannot find the path specified.
