Code projects in 4.18 cannot be opened in DebugGame from the commandline.

Yes. This worked successfully in 4.17.2.

The attached log is from 4.19. The log for 4.18 was similar.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a new Basic Code project.
  2. Close Visual Studio when it opens.
  3. Open the project's root folder.
  4. Delete everything except for the Config folder, Source folder, and .uproject file.
  5. Open a command prompt.
  6. Run the following command: <Path/To/UE4Editor.exe> <Path/To/Project.uproject> -debug
  7. When prompted, choose to build the project.

The project fails to build successfully. The log file (attached) indicates that a number of module files from various Engine plugins are incompatible or missing.

The project builds successfully and opens in DebugGame.
