Dynamically created render targets do not work as expected when packaged for windows. If it is replaced with a static render target, it works fine.

Found in 4.20 CL# 4369336, 4.21 CL# 4753647, 4.22 CL# 5531554, 4.23 CL# 5586650

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open attached project.
  2. Play in Editor to view working render target.
  3. Package the Project for Windows.
  4. Open the packaged project.

The plane will be showing the default diffuse texture

The render target would work when using the Create Dynamic Material Instance node

if you create the render target after Begin Play instead of the construction script, it works.
