Description

Crash When Trying to Find a Blueprint Class with Niagara Particles

Found in 4.20 CL# 4369336, 4.21 CL# 4753647, 4.22 CL# 6574378, 4.23 CL# 6599617

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a Blank Code Project
  2. Create a Niagara Emitter and System based off the fountain sample
  3. Create a new Actor and add the Niagara system component set to the created system
  4. Create a new C++ Actor Class “MyActor”
  5. Call the following static  ConstructorHelpers function  to Actor’s Constructor:
    static ConstructorHelpers::FClassFinder<AActor>MyBlueprint(TEXT("/Game/NewBlueprint"));
  6. Build Project & ensure Hot Reload
  7. Create blueprint instance of “MyActor”
  8. Drag into editor world space and press PIE

Results:
Crash as soon as you press PIE

Expected:
No Crash would occur
