Visual studio 2022: Unreal Engine 5

StOrM3 Cornett 1 Reputation point

I'm trying to install Unreal Engine 5 Master Branch from Github, so that I can develop a cross platform game targetted for PC and Xbox. I ran setup.bat and it completed fine. So next I was onto Generate Project Files, and it went part way then spit out an error about me not having Visual Studio 2019 installed, and quit. I understand it needs the 2019 toolset to compile etc.. Surely Visual studio has a Visual studio 2019 toolset, kind of like when using Visual studio 2019 to compile and run unreal engine 4, we had to install the 2017 toolsets and it worked flawlessly. Shouldn't Visual Studio 2022 have something similar for the Visualstudio2019 toolsets?

Thanks to anyone who helps me figure out if I can get it to work with 2022 or if I have to go back to 2019.
