If you created a new project and get the error that some gems are not loaded when you run the Lumberyard Editor, don’t panic. You Don’t have to go back and rebuild your project again in the Command Prompt.

Here is the directory where VS 2017 Editor is locates.



I am still figuring things out, but I currently prefer Visual Studio 2017 it is much more light weight and a cleaner interface. Cryengine and Unity both use Visual Studio 2017.

I hope the future releases of Lumberyard will have better selection and execution of the correct editor based on the IDE selected.
