When accessing a data table in BP and getting an Actor Class from it the Class will return NULL when in Standalone Game, Launching, or in a packaged game.

This only seems to work in PIE.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open Attached Project
  2. PIE and press 1 to verify BP is working (TestSphere and TestCube is printed to view)
  3. End PIE and then play in Standalone Game

No Static Mesh Actors are spawned and if you press 1 Failed is printed to the screen

Actors are spawned and if you press 1 their display names are printed to the screen
