When using the Spawn Emitter at Location node in BP the emitter will not spawn while simulating in BP. Other Spawn at location nodes behave the same way. The Cube actor was included as a test to eliminate some suspicions.

Cube actor was included in test to disprove suspicions mentioned in comments.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open attached project
  2. Open ParticleSpawner_BP and go to viewport tab
  3. Simulate in BP
