Builded and linked, client.exe gives a Object "tabs" error
Hey. I was able to build and link my solution to client.exe. I click on client.exe and a pop up says "Can't find Gui Object "tabs""

What is wrong? My guess is the engine.pak but I even tried updating using autoupdate. I didn't move any files all I did was put in the paths and click the update button and it said it was finished.

Any help would be great. Please before my brain explodes..

Edir: Just for funsies I moved all the new .lib, engine.pak and other files by hand to the data folder. Same error still. D:

Quite literally, it just means it cannot find the *.gobj file. Look again for the tabs.gobj file you created and make sure its in the correct directory specified in client.exe.

That's what I thought. It's a project based on a previous programmers work, he left before I joined the team i'm working with. It's also my first EE project so I am still learning haha.

I'll talk to the leader and see if she has all the files and junk I need.

Thanks for the response! :]

EDIT: Does it have to be called tabs.gobj? I do have a few .gobj files but none called tabs.

Edit02: Alright talked to the project leader. There never was a tabs.gobj and she did have it working at one point. What could be the issue? Is it engine.pak???

This error is baffling to me because we never created a tabs.gobj. So I'm not sure how we even got the error. It's a new error, never got it before.

Yeah no where in the code does it call for a "tabs.gobj" there is a Tabs object called tab in the code.

most likely it can't find the gui object inside the .gobj called Tabs, maybe the gobj file you are loading have the tabs objects named something else? I am not sure if it is case-sensitive.


"Can't find Gui Object "tabs"" this doesn't say anything about Tabs.gobj, it says it can't find a object called tabs inside the loaded .gobj file.(atleast I think)
